Each book in The Moment of Truth trilogy is told from the perspective of former best friends Lyla, Aven, and Quinn.

Over the course of the series, which takes place on their senior trip, each girl tackles that email all while learning about life, love, and the truth about the fight that ended their perfect friendship.
In the final book, Aven must decide if, when it comes to deciding between friendship and true love, she is able to listen to her heart. For the past four years she has shared everything with her best friend, Liam . . . except for the secret she knows would ruin their friendship.

With the end of high school drawing near, and the seniors headed to Florida for a class trip, Aven is determined to tell Liam the truth. Even though he already has a girlfriend. Even though Aven's finally met a great guy who likes her back. Even though Liam reciprocating her feelings is as terrifying as him rejecting her.

She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door.
With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there's a secret Charlie's keeping that even he hasn't figured out—she's fallen for him. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.
On the Fence is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it.
