THE SEASON OF YOU AND ME
CASSIDY Emmerich is reeling from a sudden, humiliating breakup. The last thing she wants to do is stick around and be reminded of her ex everywhere she goes. On impulse, she decides to spend the summer with her father and his family at their Jersey shore bed and breakfast. A different scene and a new job working as a camp counselor seem like the perfect recipe for forgetting Gavin as quickly as possible — not to mention avoiding him until he leaves for college.
BRYAN Lakewood is sick of nevers. You’ll never walk. You’ll never surf. You’ll never slow dance with your date at prom. One miscalculated step and Bryan’s life changed forever — now he’s paralyzed and needs to use a wheelchair. This is the first summer he’s back at his former position at Camp Manatee and ready to reclaim some of his independence, in spite of those who question if he’s up for the job.
Cass is expecting two months dealing with heartbreak.
Bryan is expecting a summer of tough adjustments.
Neither of them is expecting to fall in love.
THE SECRETS OF ATTRACTION
MADISON Pryce thinks she’s got everything figured out — she’s working on a portfolio for a summer art program, trying to keep up her grades, and hanging with her awesome friends. Plus she has her hot boyfriend, Zach. They’re just casual, by choice — getting serious with a guy only complicates life. But then visit from a family friend turns her life upside down and throws all her beliefs into question.
JESSE McMann is still reeling from a breakup that shattered his heart and his band. He can’t seem to move on from his ex and hasn’t picked up his guitar in weeks. Then, pride (and some goading from his bass player and fellow barista) forces him to find a new drummer — and the inspiration to write music again.
Kismet arrives in the unlikely form of Grayson Barrett, who tries out for Jesse’s band, and whose girlfriend is BFFs with the cute girl who orders a chai latte after yoga every Thursday: Maddie. What Jesse and Maddie thought they knew about the secrets of attraction and the rules of romance changes once they start falling for each other.
THE PROMISE OF AMAZING
WREN Caswell is the quiet good girl who’s always done what she’s supposed to — only now, in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change but doesn’t know how.
GRAYSON Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s — until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change but doesn’t know how.
Then one fateful night, their paths cross. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are — and falling in love.
