By the time Effie Galanos starts her senior year, it feels like she's already been thinking about college applications for an eternity-after all, finding a college that will be the perfect fit and be accessible enough for Effie to navigate in her wheelchair presents a ton of considerations that her friends don't have to worry about. What Effie hasn't told anyone is that she already knows exactly what school she has her heart set on: a college in NYC. When she finds out that Wilder (her longtime crush) is applying there too, it seems like one more sign from the universe. As Effie navigates her way through a year of admissions visits, senior class traditions, internal and external ableism, she starts to learn that sometimes growing up means being open to a world of possibilities you never even dreamed of.
