Olivia is not apparently gifted, at least not for most of her life. With one genius brother and a basketball star brother, her harshly practical mother and absentee father gave her no encouragement growing up to pursue a real dream. However, a chance encounter with her school's art teacher opens her eyes to her own incredible abilities--for a very unstable and impractical profession.

Things only get messier when she begins to break out of her years-old shell with the help of her new friends and a the intriguing Shawn Harrison, until both worlds can no longer stay separate.
