It all starts the moment shy, beautiful Felicity Porter asks Ben Covington to sign her high school yearbook. Its graduation day... hes gorgeous... and shes had a four-year crush on him. Even though the two have never spoken, what he writes is so insightful, so perfect, it persuades Felicity to change the course of her future.

Felicity moved to New York to find romance but ends up finding herself.
Felicity Porters whole life has been dictated to her by her parents, who want her to follow in their footsteps as a doctor. Upon graduating from high school she changes all that. Her long-time crush Ben is going to college in New York, and so Felicity applies there too, and arrives to find Ben does not feel as strongly about her, but gets over it with the help of her new friends Noel, Jullie, and Elena. It is here that she will spend the next four years, going through the long, difficult, but ultimately rewarding journey toward adulthood.
