Late one night Nicki Johnson plays with emotional fire and Googles her high school love, only to find his name splashed across the British gossip columns. Back in his native England, Adam Kincaid is successful and dating a woman from an aristocratic family like his own. With a career in politics, Nicki’s no slouch, but she knows Adam is living a world away from her life. Yet there was a time he was no farther than the next locker. Nicki will never forget their year together in high school—the year of her sister’s death, the year her mother checked out. Adam helped Nicki through suffocating grief, and she led him through a coming of age. Was it just high school, or was it something more?
This was a totally surprising read by a wonderful author!
Mary Whitney is a fantastic writer and she gives us an absolutely beautiful story about first love. The story tells us what happened years before between Nicki and Adam. Nicki has never really gotten over Adam, even though they were very close while in high school. Adam helped Nicki cope with the sudden death of her sister and Nicki falls for him.
This book has a much more emotional feel than most stories about high schoolers. I felt that both Nicki and Adam were very mature for their age, which I appreciated. All in all, this is a wonderful story with very well-written characters. The author throws a few things in the way of Nicki and Adam finally being together, and the ending will really leave you wanting to read much more from Mary Whitney!
