Footfree And Fancyloose : Harper Waddle, Sophie Bushell, and Kate Foster committed the ultimate suburban sin: bailing on college to pursue their dreams. Their best friend, Becca Winsberg, took a more traditional path, but she's got dreams of her own. Now the year is half-way through and their dreams seem within reach. Well, almost. Harper has managed to gain the freshman fifteen without ever being a freshman. Now, after months of procrastination and an almost-affair with her former English teacher, she's determined to finally write the "Next Great American Novel." Even if she has to lock herself in her basement bathroom to do it. Sophie is living the good life in a Beverly Hills guesthouse. But when circumstances change, and she's forced to crash on her frenemy Sam's couch, bad auditions are the least of her troubles. Kate is doing aid work in Ethiopia, where she encounters family ghosts - along with Darby, the handsome but antagonistic Princetonian who assumes she's a dizzy blonde. Kate is out to prove Darby wrong... and reunite two sisters in the process. And when Becca finally emerges from her wintry lovers' nest, it seems her relationship with Stuart isn't as cozy as she thought. Even if the year that's changing everything has sometimes been less than dreamy, these four best friends will always have each other.
