Social misfit Mari Caldwell desperately wants to get on with her life. If only she could get there faster - specifically to Yale - and leave behind all the things that make her anxious: driving a car, crossing bridges, her peers, her parents' divorce.
When Mari comes across an old scrapbook of her mother's, she discovers her white-collar parents were once blue-denim hippies. She ends up fighting with her mother and storming out. She pedals her bicycle into a downpour, swerves to avoid an oncoming jeep, and flies smack into a tree. Mari climbs into an abandoned VW van bearing the ghost of a psychedelic paint job and passes out.
The next morning, Mari wakes up to the sound of music. But something is wrong; she can't quite figure out what. The skyline, her father's address, the music on the radio. Everything is slightly off. Only when Mari runs headlong into a war protest does Mari begin to realize: It is June, 1967.
In the epicenter of the Summer of Love, Mari makes friends with the would-be rock band, meets the grandfather she never knew, and falls in love. In spite of herself, Mari discovers that love changes everything. It even changes her.
