Quinn's summer is not going so well—her grandmother is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, her dad's gambling addiction is only getting worse, and the boy who ruined her life, Wesley James, is back in town. When Wesley is hired on at the same restaurant as her and joins the school band, it becomes more and more difficult for Quinn to exact the revenge she seeks as she sees Wesley's true personality and begins to fall for him. Between trying to get Wesley fired and stifle her feelings for him, she also struggles with longing to go on the school's London trip and not being able to afford it. Thankfully, Quinn learns the truth about the reason behind her parent's divorce and overcomes her pride so as to forgive Wesley and let him into her heart. She also gets the money to go to London and enjoy the place where her grandparents met and fell in love.
