An Autumn Beginning
Publisher: Jessie G. Talbot
Who's growing up and who's just growing older? Hollin Clocke is sixteen so it's time to take her place at the adults' table for Thanksgiving, right? Wrong! She's ready but her family isn't. They want her to stay at the kids' table forever. It's so unfair and no one's taking her side.
Until her cousin's college roommate arrives. Justis MacNair is tall, likable, and instantly blown away by the gorgeous girl he didn't expect to find. He doesn't waste any time in getting to know her a lot better. But is he really the friend Hollin needs? He won't tell her anything about himself. What's he hiding? If he won't trust her how can she trust him?
Everyone on board for the Clocke family celebration of food, fighting, and grease fire! But will there be a first love?
