So Willa and Sam team up on what seems like a wild-goose chase to find some loophole in Grandfather Sinclair''s crazy notion.

Willa is smart, beautiful ... and has a wild streak that sends them soaring together above the clouds. But Willa isn''t about to let Sam fly away with her heart until she knows his true motives.
