Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has hers. Sick of
being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to
deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a
one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when
she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with
an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if
that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class
of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor.
She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier.
Having just graduated from high school, Ben is set to leave Gypsum,
Nevada. It's good timing since the gypsum mine that is the lifeblood of
the area is closing, shutting the whole town down with it. Ben is lucky:
he's headed to San Diego, where he's got a track scholarship at the
University of California. But his best friends, Pete and Hog Boy, don't
have college to look forward to, so to make them happy, Ben goes with
them to check out the hot chick parked on the side of Highway 447.
She and her Gypsy family earn money by telling fortunes. Some customers
choose Tarot cards; others have their palms read. The thousands of
people attending the nearby Burning Man festival spend lots of
cash--especially as Lala gives uncanny readings. But lately Lala's been
questioning whether there might be more to life than her upcoming
arranged marriage. And the day she reads Ben's cards is the day that
everything changes for her. . . and for him.
