At sixteen, Keres is ready to pursue her musical dreams and leave the past behind. Her social life has grown a lot more complicated ever since she and her bestie Ethan split. He's rich, popular...and totally disinterested in reconciling with Keres. That suits her just fine.

But when she discovers the true identity of a depressed caller on her favorite podcast, she may not be able to ignore the past—or Ethan—much longer. Is it possible his charmed life isn't so charmed, after all?

After a chance meeting with her music idol ends on a sour note, her future might hang in the balance. Can Keres overcome her heartbreak and give Ethan a second chance while staying true to herself and her dreams?
Or are some friendships undeserving of an encore?
