    Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy's soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?

    Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart. . . . He'd thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy.

Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing, and his thoughts swirling. 
    Readers who love Sarah Dessen will devour these pages with hearts in throats as Emmy and Oliver struggle to face the messy, confusing consequences of Oliver's father's crime.
