Cover text reads: "What will change, what will not, and how we'll stay connected." Most books in this genre are for the students only, and many say frank/crude things about sex. This one does not, aside form warnings about making sure nobody slips anything in your drink, etc. A sweet book, with great information about what problems are common for both parties at this transition point and how to avoid them.
