A Forever for the 21st Century.
Audrey is a good girl: a good student, daughter and friend. She’s also the last person anyone expects to be with Luke DeSalvio, the biggest player at school. On the night she dumps him, someone takes her picture doing something good girls just don’t do…
The next Monday, messages begin popping up on people’s phones and email inboxes. Soon everyone knows, including her teachers, her mum and her dad… Now she must discover strength she never knew he had, find friends where she didn’t think she would, and learn that life goes on – no matter how different it is to how you think it’s going to be.
