About the Book
Sarah, a Greek girl from New York, is about to begin her senior year in a small North Carolina town. Being new is never easy but Sarah’s not looking to fit in. She plans to spend the year helping her dad pay the bills and her younger brother adjust. After that, she’s off to college.
She doesn’t expect to find her first real best friend. Or to somehow catch the eye of Lakeview High’s All-Star athlete. Most of all, she doesn’t expect to fall for him. Jamie Nelson is the guy everyone’s crushing on. And Sarah has good reason to avoid those.
The force of their feelings catch both by surprise. To complicate things more, Sarah discovers a family secret she must confront and overcome. The last thing she needs is drama with the populars. But Jamie’s no quitter. Superstar or not, he knows a girl like Sarah will only happen once to him. What he doesn’t know is what to do about it.
Senior year becomes high-stakes as Sarah and Jamie deal with social barriers, hidden truths and the grip of first love — to discover they will never be the same again.
