Sarah finds herself at a "beginning of summer" party, thrown by her boyfriend, Fry, the most popular boy in school. The party is at the most famous location in town, the cottage of Rufus Baylor, a famous poet. When the cottage is destroyed, the teens are charged with manually repairing the cottage and attending a class on poetry appreciation - taught by Rufus himself. Sarah learns a lot about herself, her family, and what is important in her life, during the weeks that she attends class and completes her community service. Sarah is a very relatable character, revealing a mixture of teen priorities and self-growth.
