For Chance, there's always only been Dakota.

He's been in love with the girl since the day they met. He's tried everything to get her to notice him and nothing has worked. So when things suddenly start moving in the right direction, Chance can't believe his luck.

Until Kyle comes along.

Kyle is like a new shiny toy and Dakota loves new and shiny. She falls for the tall, blonde and gorgeous fast and without looking back. Dating the summer before college wasn't in the plans, but come on, Kyle is perfect. So why does Chance and his snarky grin keeps popping up in her mind now that Dakota has found her happiness?

When Chance's world comes crashing down, Dakota proves the strength of their friendship, surprising herself and everyone around her, by helping him pick up the pieces. In return, Chance is finally able to crack her hard shell, discovering that not everything is sunny in Dakota-land. Her world is not what it seems on the outside, and together, they're able to pull each other to the brink of safety and sanity.

Dakota likes that things are simple with Kyle, so why does she feel more like herself around Chance?

As graduation grows closer, both Chance and Dakota learn that the plans you make for your life don't always play out the way you expect them and sometimes, everything starts to make sense when you find yourself on the edge of falling.





We're still discussing our teacher's random switch when I see her. She's like a ray of sunshine in the darkened hallway of this old school. Her body is in constant motion, she can never just walk anywhere, she almost bounces off the walls in her excitement. Even now she half skips, half runs right up to us, her eyes on Brooklynn. I wait for her to acknowledge me, at least with a flick of her eyes in my direction, but I get nothing. Even though she likes Grayson, he gets nothing either. In the next moment, I know why. My heart drops as soon as she opens her mouth and speaks.

"There is a hunk of a guy here and I think I'm in love."
