The summer of her dreams is about to get a reality check.
said it couldn't be done, but geeky sophomore Lauren Carlson
transformed herself into a popular girl after moving to a new school
halfway across the country. Amazing what losing her braces and going out
for cheerleading will do. Only trouble is, the popular crowd is wearing
on Lauren's nerves and she can't wait to return to summer camp where
she's valued for her brain instead of her handsprings. She misses her
old friends and most of all, her long time camp-only boyfriend, Seth.
This year she intends to upgrade their relationship to year-round status
once she's broken up with her new, jock boyfriend, Matt. He doesn't
even begin to know the real her, a girl fascinated by the night sky who
dreams of discovering new planets and galaxies.
But Matt isn't
giving her up without a fight. As he makes his case to stay together,
Lauren begins to realize his feelings run deeper than she ever would
have guessed. What if the guy she thought she was meant to be with
forever isn't really The One? Returning to Camp Juniper Point was
supposed to ground her uprooted life, but she's more adrift than ever.
Everything feels different and soon Lauren's friends are turning on her
and both guys question what she really wants. As summer tensions
escalate, Lauren wonders if she's changed more than she thought. Will
her first big discovery be herself?
He was fifteen and she was seventeen.

finds himself submersed into the life of upperclassmen, and falling in
love with senior Brooke Bennet. To Ryan she's his dream girl, perfect.
Maybe to the outside world a two-year age difference doesn't matter, but
this is high school. Everything matters.
Ryan soon realizes
Brooke's life is not so perfect. He becomes her closest friend, her safe
place to fall when she needs to escape. Ryan seems to be benched in the
friend zone with no chance to bat.
Time is both a curse and a
blessing. It ushers Brooke away to college, and Ryan into the arms of
his first girlfriend. It alters Ryan from a kid to a high school
graduate, ready to venture to college himself. But when Ryan sees Brooke
again he realizes there are some things even time can't touch.
Though much has changed, one question still remains. Will the things that mattered in high school always stand between them?
