Zeus has just moved to a small town from Chicago so his mother can follow her dreams and open up a health food cafe. He plans on having a boring summer delivering food from the cafe before starting his junior year at a new school. On one of the first days of summer, however, he meets Rose while delivering an order. She’s amazing on the piano, smart, funny, and insanely beautiful. But she has plans to attend a prestigious music high school in New York and he’s just an awkward junior. Luckily, over the summer, Zeus and Rose put worries for the future aside and decide to live in the moment instead. When complications arise, Zeus has to figure out how to balance love, family, and responsibility—and somehow convince Rose that what they have is more than just a summer fling.
