About this item
Still recovering from her father's death, a teenager named Macy dreams of a life full of predictability and calm--one she is sure she will find at her summer job at the library, and in the arms of her boyfriend, Jason. However, when Jason suddenly breaks up with her (via e-mail, no less), Macy decides it's time for her to take some chances in life. Giving up her library job, Macy is hired to work at Wish Catering, a busy local business run by a lively woman named Delia. Finding a way to thrive among the chaos of Wish Catering helps Macy discover that she has the strength to go on with her life--and perhaps even find new love with a handsome co-worker named Wes.
The summer following her father's death, Macy plans to work at the library and wait for her brainy boyfriend to return from camp, but instead she goes to work at a catering business where she makes new friends and finally faces her grief.
