School is over at last and Colby and his best friend Bev want to spend a year wandering around Europe! But before they take off, they go on a last concert tour through the Pacific Northwest with the members of the Disenchantments, Bev’s band. But, out of a sudden, Bev abandons their plans and Colby is totally stunned.
Why has she never mentioned it before? Why did she keep talking about her trip for months, although she had already set her mind on other things? Deeply hurt and upset, Colby struggles to gain control of his feelings for Bev. How can he ever talk about his true feelings for her, if she evades him on their tour?
