Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad--her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares--has been canceled.After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb's free . . . if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers. Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as criminal and freak. Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It's a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.

Synopsis:

When dark and stormy Gray meets light and lively Dylan, they fall easily into love. But love takes work--and sometimes having to say you're sorry.

Synopsis:

"The perfect love story to kick-start your summer reading."--Seventeen.com

Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl who is seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving, and besides, opposites attract. What starts as friendship turns into admiration, respect, and caring, until finally these two lone souls find that they are truly in love with each other. But staying in love is never as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they're going to have to work at it . . .

Synopsis:

Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk and hit Maggie Armstrong, leaving her with a limp for the rest of her life. Caleb and Maggie are pigeonholed as criminal and freak. Then the truth emerges of what really happened the night of the accident.
