Alexis Jefferson doesn’t want much for her sixteenth birthday—just an amazing party and a luxury car. With an unlimited budget and the help of her best friend, Lucky Lewis, Alexis is ready to make her wildest dreams come true. After making a series of bad choices, Alexis finds her party plans in jeopardy—unless she volunteers at a place she never imagined. It might not be so bad since it means seeing cutie Carter Summerville...
