A girl with big dreams. Islands full of secrets. Shelby jumps into a research project on a tiny island. She imagines beach chairs and palm trees swaying, but instead of fun in the sun, she soon finds herself off the grid and in a ton of trouble. A long-buried family secret comes to light about her problematic mom. And then a good-looking guy cycles into her life and tangles up her heart even more. She's desperate to quit but knows she would let too many people down, including herself. Can she call up the toughness to finish her project and fulfill her commitment? Or will she bail on the whole summer and perhaps lose a chance at love?
