Sometimes love is about not getting what you want, but what you need. Paige and Zach are facing the reality of life. He got a scholarship, and she received a rejection letter in her mailbox. They realize setting each other free isn’t such a bad thing. Paige is creative, imaginative, and strong, and taking this next step on her own might be scary, but Zach is always just a text or a call away. In her heart, she knows he’ll always find his way back.
