Lily Landon knows college is the ticket out of her boring small town and her first step to becoming a lawyer like the ones she watches on television. To help her applications stand out, Lily joins Green for Good, her school's environmental club, and meets Fiona, a passionate activist who will do everything it takes to protect the planet. As Lily grows closer to Fiona, she realizes “everything it takes“ may mean getting arrested, and a criminal record does not look good on college applications. How can Lily save the Earth without destroying her future?
