She’s the girl next door, my best friend, and all I want. If only I could figure out how to tell her.
Ever since my dad took a job in Washington D.C., I’m used to picking up the slack around the house. Between school, taking care of my four sisters, and diving practice, I’m a master at handling whatever life throws at me. Except when it comes to the girl next door.
Gwen has been my best friend ever since kindergarten. She’s the jelly to my peanut butter, the frosting to my cake. She’s there for me like no one else. The keeper of my secrets. Except there’s one secret I can’t figure out how to share—I’m hopelessly in love with her.
And secrets have a nasty way of multiplying. Just when I need my best friend the most, another guy asks me for advice on how to win Gwen’s heart.
How much can one person really handle?
I had my happily ever, but what actually happens after?
Falling in love with my best friend was pretty much the best idea I ever had. Being with Sam makes everything better. Now all we have to do is get into the same college, and the future will be brighter than the sun.
Then everything went supernova. A missed period and a positive pregnancy test. Suddenly the clock is ticking on the future. Every possible decision feels wrong. All I want is a way out. For someone—anyone—to take this choice away from me.
But when fate takes choice out of the equation, I feel like I’ve been shredded in pieces. I don’t know what to feel, or who to turn to. The only person who might understand is Sam. But I’ve never felt further away from the person I love the most.
How do you rebuild when you find yourself standing in ruins?
