Synopsis: Haley Stevenson is the girl everyone thinks she’s the ‘perfect’ head cheerleader and princess of Juniper Falls. On the outside, she might look like she’s holding it together, but on the inside shes struggling to keep her GPA up. She still is trying to get over her first love and when she has to take summer school Civics, she meets Fletcher Scott, someone who might be able to take her mind off of all the things going wrong in her life.

Fletcher Scott a homeschooled, hockey player who joins public school again, is allergic to almost everything and has asthma. He distances himself from almost everyone except his family. When he realizes be is done just warming the bench and being the invisible guy no one knows, he starts to put himself out there. 

When a life threating scenario brings two people together will they be able to set aside past problems and move on to become happy?  

Thoughts: A realistic romance with a cheerleader and hockey player, makes you rethink their “lives” and your assumptions about them. These two characters complement each other a way I have never read before. Haley is finding herself and getting over her first love, while Fletcher is learning to trust people. Each aspect of this novel made my heart so full and happy! This was such a great wintery read, I know I’ll reread when I’m need of a happy yet, sophisticated read!
