Everything is falling apart for high school senior Jackson Watt. His best friend Brady disappears without a word. His mom remarries, which means a new stepdad, a new house . . . a new life. He falls in love with the girl of his dreams, and then risks blowing it for good. It’s only when Jax takes one last road trip to Graceland that he can accept the past year-and what it really means to grow up.
