Cray got into the same college his father attended and is expected to go. And to go pre-med. And to get started right away. His parents are paying the tuition. It should be an easy decision.

But it's not.

All Cray knows is that what's expected of him doesn't feel right. The pressure to make a decision—from his family, his friends—is huge. Until he meets Rayne, a girl who is taking a gap year, and who helps him find his first real job, at a home of four adults with developmental disabilities. What he learns about himself and others will turn out to be more than any university could teach him—and twice as difficult.

Why We’re Waiting On It

Jamie and Dani both took a gap year before pursuing their second degrees so this is one that they really want to read. There is a lot of good about this one and it is a topic that we don’t think gets a lot of attention. Most people are expected to either start working right after high school or go to university/college, but what if that isn’t the best option? We’re hoping that GAP LIFE tackles this question and more!
