Surprises abound and sparks ignite in the highly anticipated, utterly romantic companion to My Life Next Door.
Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To:
Alice Garrett was The Girl Most Likely To:
For Tim, it wouldn't be smart to fall for Alice. For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. But Tim has never been known for making the smart choice, and Alice is starting to wonder if the "smart" choice is always the right one. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard.
Then the unexpected consequences of Tim's wild days come back to shock him. He finds himself in a situation that isn't all it appears to be, that he never could have predicted . . . but maybe should have.
And Alice is caught in the middle.
Told in Tim's and Alice's distinctive, disarming, entirely compelling voices, this return to the world of My Life Next Door is a story about failing first, trying again, and having to decide whether to risk it all once more.

Growing up, one of my favorite things to do was take my bike out on summer nights and ride around my small coastal town. I liked to go around dinnertime, so I could look through the windows I passed and envision the lives of the people inside, imagine whole lives based on the glimpses I'd catch.
I'd speculate about the brightly lit dinner tables: were they as comforting, warm, and familiar as a worn, favorite t-shirt, or did they buzz with invisible tension? I'd wonder if the tall, graceful boy playing basketball in the backyard was as at ease with himself as he seemed, if the two girls sitting compatibly on the porch steps were lifelong friends or had only just met or were growing apart but still held together through years of habit.
