In kindergarten, Jax pulled out a chair for Jacey and swept the play dough off so that she would sit down next to him and he’s been carving out ways for them to stick together ever since. Though everyone in their conservative, small beach town sees them as a couple, except it isn’t true. They’ve never done anything officially coupley, no dates, no kisses, no sex. Getting together for real just seemed so huge, and it always felt like they had forever. So they waited.
And then Hurricane Sandy came and life suddenly seemed less sure, more fragile. Jacey’s house was destroyed, Jax’s was damaged and life in their town changed completely. As they rebuild their lives, Jacey builds up her courage, and finally gets brave enough to tell Jax how she feels, just as timing slaps her in the face. Then plans change – Jacey’s for the summer and Jax’s for the fall, and suddenly they’re left with just a few weeks together. Can they begin forever when time’s run out, or will they have waited a lifetime to never have a beginning at all?
