Emily Hudson should be happy. She has achieved modest success as a painter and lives a good suburban life with her husband and four children. But one day, Emily stopped and remembered how she felt at sixteen, when she found love with James Moran -- the young man she kissed beneath her parents' Ping-Pong table -- the boy who made her Jimmy's girl.
It's been thirty years since they went their separate ways. But Emily can't stop herself from thinking about Jimmy, nor can she resist using the Internet to find his phone number and placing the call that will change both their lives forever.
When Emily and Jimmy decide to meet again, they risk the lives they've made for themselves and the happiness of their respective families. In one unforgettable weekend, they will learn what went wrong between them and find out together if first love deserves a second chance.
