Today . . . I want . . . I . . . I want to be loved.

On a gray Valentine's Day, fifteen year-old Carmen's world is turned upside down. She must give a presentation in class, and her fear of public speaking is making her sick. To make matters worse, Carmen is convinced today is the day she'll die of shame. If only she hadn't put that note in Simon Krasinski's locker asking him to the school dance

Instead of going to school, Carmen runs the other way into an adventure she could never have imagined. When she meets a local rock star at a laundromat, Carmen is propelled into a journey of self-discovery where maybe, just maybe, she'll find the elusive love she so desires.
