Seventeen year old Leah Munroe has had a long standing agreement and contract with both her parents, it was written up when Leah was fourteen. She never really thought the consequences would come to fruition as her parents were divorced, her father moving on with another woman and her mother moving on with business meetings and overseas trips.
So it comes as a surprise to Leah when she arrives home afternoon to find her mom speaking with the school principal! It gets even worse for Leah when her mother announces that she is being shipped of to her father and his new family...in the middle of Montana.
When Leah arrives she is so far out of her comfort zone that she does the only thing she knows how to do, she begins to rebel even more. The situation isn't helped by a jealous and manipulative step-sister, a father who is trying to rekindle his relationship with his daughter, the good looking ranch hand that catches Leah's attention and the need to return to the ocean.
