How long does a high school crush last? One year? Ten? Twenty? Forty? Small-college basketball coach Matt Cooper is about to find out as he is faced with an unexpected reunion with Kim Gustafson, the cutest girl from high school.
When Matt Cooper moves to Ankeny, Iowa, he develops a crush on Kim Gustafson, the cutest girl in school. She seems far too unattainable to date. Instead, he daydreams that he will someday have son and Kim a daughter who will marry each other. The second chance somehow seems romantic to him. After high school, Matt loses all track of Kim.
How could Matt know that thirty-eight years later his daydream would come true? How could he know that circumstances would throw him together with Kim for an unexpected reunion for five days to care for their shared grandchild? Who could know what happens next?
