From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie McGuire comes a riveting tale of first love that starts young but runs deep.

The first time Elliott Youngblood spots Catherine Calhoun, he's just a boy with a camera, and he's never seen a sadder and more beautiful sight. Both Elliott and Catherine feel like outcasts, yet they find an easy friendship with each other. But when Catherine needs him most, Elliott is forced to leave town.

Elliott finally returns, but he and Catherine are now different people. He's a star high school athlete, and she spends all her free time working at her mother's mysterious bed-and-breakfast. Catherine hasn't forgiven Elliott for abandoning her, but he's determined to win back her friendship...and her heart.

Just when Catherine is ready to fully trust Elliott, he becomes the prime suspect in a local tragedy. Despite the town's growing suspicions, Catherine clings to her love for Elliott. But a devastating secret that Catherine has buried could destroy whatever chance of happiness they have left.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Catherine Calhoun and Elliott Youngblood first meet as young teens, and they have a lot in common. Both are socially awkward, have strained family relations (especially with their mothers), and are smart and artistic. But Elliott is Native American and not accepted in the small Oklahoma town where Catherine's family have been highly influential until very recently. Each has a shameful family secret to hide, and chapters told alternately over the course of many years chart their growing attraction to each other, their development as individuals, and their eventual romantic relationship. Major issues tackled include mental illness, and Catherine's mother's downward spiral is believable and empathetically portrayed. A comfortable, formulaic romance in the spirit of Nicholas Sparks, this will be popular with romance fans. Although McGuire's simple plot doesn't require this number of pages, it's the cozy feel of the characters and the inevitability of their togetherness that will hold readers.--Carton, Debbie Copyright 2018 Booklist"
