FINDING BRYNN is a about finding oneself, looking for love, and the sisterhood support you need along the way.
Most of Brynn's friends and family tell her she is crazy to leave everything behind to move 1200 miles from home. She feels like she is being adventurous and wants a change from her boring Midwestern life. The only thing she wishes she could bring with her to Denver is Ned, her boy-toy turned serious boyfriend that her parents know nothing about.
Once in Denver, Brynn finds being 'adventurous' isn't as fun or easy as she expected. She's suddenly on the bad side of one of her grad school professors, she's just about out of money, and Mother Nature wreaks havoc on her car. At least she has Kim, her new best friend that she met at school, to talk to about almost anything.
Brynn didn't anticipate meeting any guy that intrigues her, but Dave sure peaks her interest. She wants to explore if she is imagining a spark, or if there really is something there. But Ned...the sex with him is too good to just throw away, and they're making the long distance thing work...sort of. Ned? Dave? Is any of this really what she wants?
What Brynn thinks is essential in life changes drastically when she gets the call that causes her to get on the first plane home. Only then does Brynn realize what is truly important to her and what she wants in life.

This excerpt actually happened to me, and it is exactly how I felt. Getting accepted to grad school didn't feel real, nor did looking at apartments. Only when I was about to sign the lease did my decision to move hit me, and it hit me hard! My hand was frozen and my heart raced. This is the biggest leap I have taken in my life.
The sales lady of the apartment complex is looking intently from me to the piece of paper she put on the desk between us. My mom is watching and all I feel is the pressure on me from both of them. Their voices are drifting in and out, which usually means I am about to faint. I think to myself ‘get a grip, it’s not like you’re signing on for heart surgery’. What I am about to do is sign a year’s lease on a tiny apartment 1200 miles from home and write a check for a first and last month’s deposit. Ah, crap, now that I hear myself say it in my head, it sounds like such a huge deal that my heart starts to race even faster. If I sign the lease, it means there is no turning back.
