Textbook Problem


Cam and Anna met during their freshman year of college as they were standing in line to buy tickets to a concert. While waiting in line, the two shared various aspects of their lives) Cam, whose father was an executive at a major record label. was raised in New York Some of his favorite memories were meeting popular musical artists-from the Rolling Stones to the Black Eyed Peas-as he accompanied his father on business trips. Anna. on the other hand. was born and raised in a small. rural town in southern Georgia. Her fondest childhood memories involved singing with her family. who often performed at county fairs and other small events, Even though they had different backgrounds, they felt an instant bond through their shared passion for music. Over the next couple of years, this friendship strengthened as they attended numerous concerts and other events together.
