Synopsis: Take a chance and change your life…

College was supposed to be where Hannah’s hard work paid off, but the major in honors chemistry she’s been working towards since childhood is slipping away. Worse, she’s not sure she wants it anymore. Salvation comes from an unlikely place—a used bookstore and Ben, the passionate college senior who works there.

Ben’s trapped in a life mapped out for him. Trapped in a future career as a lawyer to make his father happy. Trapped pursuing a girl he doesn't even like because she fits into a world he doesn’t want, but can’t escape. But then he meets Hannah. And for the first time, he knows what it means to truly want something.

So he gives in to being her friend. Then to wanting her. Then to kissing her. And within the freedom of his impulsivity, both of their carefully planned lives begin to fall apart...

 “My parents were always chemists with an interest in pharmaceuticals— That's how they met, in chemistry class in college. But after we lost her…Well, it's more than a job for Dad. He's stayed at Park even though he could make more money someplace else because he believes in the work they do. The drugs they're developing could help so many people. He wants to make a difference.”
“And so do you?”
“Yeah. I do.”
“So you're going to be a chemist, too. That's cool.”
I grimace. “But…”
A pause. “But what?”
I hesitate. “I failed my first chem test. Like, I bombed it. I've been doing chemistry experiments with my dad since I was four. Projects, science fair entries, special assignments— We've done it all together.”
“That's great,” Ben says. “You're lucky to have that kind of relationship with him.”
“But that's the thing— The minute I was on my own, I crashed and burned.”
“It's your first semester. It's rough for everybody. You'll get a handle on it soon.”
“Maybe I don't want to.”
The words just hang there, and I can't take them back. I can't believe I even said them. To Ben, of all people, who I barely know. I bite my lip and close my eyes, fighting a lump in my chest that aches with every breath.
“Are you having some sort of existential crisis while reading Owen Meany, Hannah?” Ben asks with a laugh. Thank God he laughs. If he didn't laugh, I'd probably start crying.
“Maybe. Bet you never expected that when you gave it to me.”
“Books can be dangerous. You never know when they're going to blow up, and what they'll take out when they do. Why do you think dictators are so fond of burning them? One idea can lead to another, and then before you know it, people are going crazy having thoughts and opinions and stuff.”
Now I'm laughing. Actually laughing, even though I just said something that kind of throws my whole life into chaos. But Ben said the exact right thing, and for a moment, I can breathe.
