Summary
Willa Chandler-Golden's father changed the world: with his self-help bestseller Is It Really Your Choice? Why Your Entire Life May Be Out of Your Control, millions of devoted fans found solace in the notion that everything happens for a reason. Though Willa isn't entirely convinced of his prophesies, she readily admits that the universe has delivered her a solid life: a reliable husband, a fast-paced career. Sure there are hiccups -- negative pregnancy tests, embattled siblings -- but this is what the universe has brought, and life, if you don't think about it too much, is wonderful. Then her (evidently not-so-reliable) husband proposes this: a two month break. Two months to see if they couldn't live their lives without each other. And before Willa can sort out destiny and fate and what it all means, she's axed from her job, her twelve-year-old nephew Nicky moves in, her ex-boyfriend finds her on Facebook, and her best friend Vanessa lands a gig writing for Dare You!, the hottest new reality TV show. And then Vanessa lures Willa into dares of her own -- dares that run counter to her father's theories of fate, dares that might change everything... but only if Willa is brave enough to stop listening to the universe and instead aim for the stars
