Virgil's relationship with his girlfriend, Frankie, has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie's sister, Sparkle, moves in for the summer, things get a lot more complicated. Sparkle has a roving eye, and it's fixed right on Virgil.

The two friends make a pact: come what may, they promise to have a future together.

Decades later in New York City, eleven-year-old Anna Rosen receives a mysterious envelope from Hannah, a great-aunt she has never met but who raised her deceased father.
