Review
New boy in school, Tripp, is seated next to Layla in class and has been accepted into the popular crowd. Tripp and Layla spend so much time together people assume they are together but they are just friends...even though Layla would like them to be more. After a misunderstanding they grow apart only to find out later that they both wanted to be together. They become a couple and are getting ready to leave town for college and travel after their senior year. This isn't a cliffhanger but really no resolution either.
Review
Loved it !
It jumps back and forth from the current time to 5 years ago so that becomes a little confusing. Great story line and I thought I knew who did it so many times and I kept changing my mind ! Would recommend for sure !
