A thing you were: Ellis and Easton have been inseparable since childhood. Their friendship is unbreakable or so Ellis thought.
A thing you are: But when a rash decision throws Ellis’s life and her relationship with Easton into chaos, she’s forced to finish her senior year halfway across the country, far from everything she’s ever known.
A thing you will be: Ellis hasn’t spoken to Easton in a year, and maybe it’s better that way; maybe eventually the Easton shaped hole in her heart will heal. But when Easton’s mom invites her home for a visit, Ellis finds herself tangled up in the web of heartache, betrayal, and anger she left behind.And with the boy she never stopped loving.
Told in alternating timelines, Kristin Dwyer’s debut novel is a gripping look at the fallout left behind when the heart wants what it shouldn’t.
