Seth is the center of the universe, at least to Nina. Her life, her schedules, her emotions, everything revolves around her boyfriend. Nina was told at fourteen that there was no such thing as unconditional love, and she lives every moment to meet the conditions of Seth’s love. When she fails, Seth breaks up with her and leaves Nina adrift, searching for the meaning of love in a high-kill animal shelter, in the art of Rome, and in her own disappointing family and friendships.
