It's the last quarter of her senior year, and Eliza is ready to be done with high school. She only has one plan, and that's to graduate and get into a good college before summer begins. However, when her English teacher assigns a project will last for the remainder of the school year, Eliza feels like an anchor has suddenly dropped on her. It should be easy, right? Just get it done and it's done. No, it's far worse. Pen pals. Her English teacher expects her to write to a pen pal for the rest of her high school career. Eliza is all but excited to write to Alexander Hamilton. He lives so far from her, and they're so different. Eliza doesn't think she can carry on with it. She thinks that there's nothing between them. But she begins to fall in love with him over their correspondence. And he's 1,800 miles away.
