What it’s about:  Abby Ives is pretty sure she’s the sassy best friend in the romcom of her best friend Maliah’s life—and she’s okay with that, honestly! The only girl she’s ever crushed on has a boyfriend, so she’ll just stay sort of happily single until she moves to New York to start her fashion career, thank you very much. But then she starts her summer internship at Lemonberry, her all-time favorite store, and is stuck sharing it—and the possibility of a job there come fall—with Jordi Perez, a quiet photographer who may or may not have committed arson according to Maliah. Unfortunately she’s also very cute and passionate, and, oh no, Abby’s definitely falling for her. Even better? It seems like Jordi’s falling for her, too. Between that and the fact that she’s helping total dudebro Jax, her “friend-in-law,” look for the best burgers in LA and learning that he’s actually maybe pretty okay… Well, let’s just say it’s shaping up to be a pretty interesting summer.

What it’s about: Vivi, a college student still mourning the loss of her father, is only one internship away from failing out of school. TJ works at the hospital by day, trying to finish up his nursing school requirements, and for his family’s Brazilian churrascaria the rest of the time. They meet at the hospital, and TJ almost takes an almost immediate disliking to Vivi, the rich Yale pre-med student who faints at the sight of blood.

Along the way, Vivi meets Ángel, the Guatemalan teenager dying from heart failure and seemingly determined to make everybody else’s lives a living hell in the process. But Vivi and Ángel share a connection in their grief, and when she’s reassigned as his translator, Ángel finds an unexpected friend in her. They , along with TJ, form an unlikely bond as Ángel tries to show the other two that they don’t actually hate each other—quite the opposite. But heart failure isn’t the only problem Ángel faces, and as much as TJ and Vivi would like to save him, they learn that sometimes all you can do it be there for the people that need you—even when doing so seems almost impossible.
