One big “what if?” question,
One not-so-smooth answer,
One life plan crumbling away…
Higgs is content to follow the detailed plan for his future – early admission to Harvard, becoming a dentist like his father and grandfather – but everything goes sour with that random question just before graduation.
Then he meets free-spirit Monarch and things take a different path utterly and entirely.
How do you bounce back when a slip-up derails your plans?

My book talk: For Higgs, his future as a Harvard-educated dentist like his dad (and as planned for his deceased older brother) is all set, until his answer to a hypothetical question starts a chain reaction of awful at his California high school and brings wild and wonderful Monarch into his life just before graduation.
