he school year is over and everybody's invited to a celebration bash at a house near Shoreline Park in Santa Barbara. Beckett Montgomery talks herself into attending. She's spent the last three years with her head down, invisible to her fellow students. She wonders if anyone will talk to her if she attends. Will anyone even know her name? Will anyone miss her when she doesn't return for her senior year?
orrigan Lewis plans to attend with her best friend Ashley. Free beer, a pot dealer on hand, and good-bye virginity.
ommy and his crew of five arrive eager to party. Everyone except Josh, who recently split with his girlfriend. He doesn't want to go, but she'll be there and he can't stay away.
ax has had a crush on a girl since his sophomore year. If she's not at the party, he's screwed. He's graduating and this bash will be his last chance to get to know her.
om Leveen weaves a story that is seamless, told through the eyes of eleven party-goers with different expectations of what the night will hold. If Hollywood doesn't grab this one up for a movie, I'll be surprised.
