The thirteen qualities of Robin's Perfect Man range from the mildly important "Handsome" to the all-important "Great taste in music." After all, Westfield's best high school folk musician can't go out with some schmuck who only listens to top 40 crap. So when hot Carter Paulson walks in the door of Robin's diner, it looks like the list may have come to life after all...until she realizes he's profoundly deaf.
Carter isn't looking for a girlfriend. Especially not a hearing one. Not that he has anything against hearing girls, they just don't speak the same language. But when the cute waitress at Grape Country Dairy makes an effort to talk with him, he takes her out on his yellow Ducati motorcycle.
Music, language, and culture all take a backseat as love drives the bike. But how long can this summer really last?
