They all live just across the hall from Lizzie, the girl who "stole" Steven's virginity (and heart) but has a 'loving' and 'creative' boyfriend back home. And then there's Rachel, Lizzie's panic-stricken roommate. Together they help each other face the freedoms and responsibilities that come along with being away from home for the first time.

She’s about to marry Sean, a bad-boy artist who is all wrong for her, and she knows her first move must be to reconnect with Lolly to relive that day. Can she make it right by living her life all over while readapting to life in New York City in the ’90s — a time of smoking in bars, carrying pagers, having an AOL email address? Becca will soon discover there’s no sure-fire way to make the right choices in life — even knowing everything she thinks she knows now.
