YE&R is the story of a 15 year-old girl and her friends in the summer before her sophomore year in high school – and, four years later, when she's a freshman in college. It's a story about self-awareness, courage, creativity – about the power of dreams, a ballpoint pen and a spiral notebook, with a surprise ending you'll never anticipate. Except for a few details, it's a true story.
