<i>What happens when two best friends from two totally different worlds realize "more than friends" might be more than an impossible dream?</i><br /><br /><b><i>Gwen</i></b><br /><br />I was a band geek. Katie was a cheerleader. We weren't even on the same plane of existence, socially speaking, but Katie was my best friend in the whole world.<br /><br />Great, right? Oh yeah, except for the part where I'm also totally secretly head over heels in love with my best friend.<br /><br />Oops.<br /><br />I was cool with it. I enjoyed what I had with Katie. I suffered in silence and the knowledge that she'd never in a million years be into me. Until the night I discovered maybe Katie was more into girls than I'd imagined even in my wildest dreams!<br /><br /><b><i>Katie</i></b><br /><br />Gwen was my best friend. She was my everything. I loved her cute smile. I loved her dorky jokes. I loved her, and I didn't dare tell anyone. Especially Gwen. Not and risk ruining our friendship!<br /><br />I was a cheerleader. I shouldn't be into girls. I really shouldn't be into my best friend. So I stayed miserable in my closet.<br /><br />Then it happened. A late night bus ride. A game of truth or dare. A kiss that changed my world.<br /><br />I always knew Gwen was my best friend. I always knew I wanted more. So why am I so terrified now that I know she wants more too? Why is it so hard to take what I've always wanted now that she's right in front of me?

TIERRA … TWON … HYPE … SHANEECE … QUAID … FRIENDS, ENEMIES, OR BOTH? Tierra and Twon are the perfect high school couple, together two years with a rock solid relationship built on friendship and love. Twon wants to take it to the next level, but Tierra is struggling with her desire to please him and her need to stay true to a commitment she’s made to herself. In the middle of this walks Shaneece, the new girl from Connecticut who knows an opportunity when she sees one. She’s ready to take care of Twon’s needs despite her friendship with Tierra, but a delicious bad boy named Hype is hooking her attention too. He’s a player, but he’s all heart — and he’s been like brothers with Twon since childhood. The goody good in the group, Quaid, seems to have it all together on the surface, but he’s had his eyes on Tierra for a long time, though he can’t admit it to himself or anyone else. He spots an opening in the turmoil that works to his advantage, until it doesn’t. Friends become enemies, enemies become friends, and everyone’s belief in what’s real is tested more than they ever thought possible.

I’m not supposed to be here.<br /><br />Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s stood between me and my final breath.<br /><br />I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as if I didn’t need any more saving.<br /><br />This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.<br /><br />Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I shouldn’t.<br /><br />The world thinks he’s missing.<br />His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.<br />Only I know just how special he is.<br /><br />I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together, we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.<br /><br />And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.
