Natalia Stevens is smart, nice and shy-and this is exactly how everyone sees her. Even day-to-day conversations with friends and classmates are difficult, and guys certainly don't pay her any attention. During her senior year, Nati begins to notice unexpected interactions with her volleyball coach, Alex. Despite the apparent chemistry developing, she struggles to believe there is anything between them. Before she can make sense of it all, volleyball season is winding down, and it appears her mystifying crush will be out of her life for good. Natalia enters university just as socially petrified as she had been in high school, but new experiences with friends, booze and boys open up a surprising world of possibility. She realizes she can talk openly to other people for the first time, and this exhilarating discovery fosters a newfound confidence she thought she might never uncover in herself. Along the roller coaster ride of thrilling and frustrating crash-and-burn encounters with various crushes, however, there is one guy Nati can't seem to shake from her mind.
