Jules never knew her father, and her ex-addict mother has always seemed more interested in artistic endeavors than in bonding. Then a simple quest to find a baby picture leads to an earth-shattering discovery: for the first two years of her life, Jules lived in foster care. Reeling from feelings of betrayal, Jules sets out to learn the truth about her past. What she finds is a wonderful family who loved her as their own --- including a now-adult foster brother. As her feelings for him spiral into a catastrophic crush, Jules finds herself on the brink of losing everything.

Since then, Otis has become the unlikely protégé of Dara, who’s hell-bent on transforming Otis into the Olympic swimmer she can no longer be. But when Otis learns that Meg is coming back, he must face some difficult truths about the girl he’s never forgotten and the brother he’s never stopped grieving. As it becomes achingly clear that he and Meg are not the same people they were, Otis must decide what to hold on to and what to leave behind.
