Three parts. Two points of views.
Never one to care what others think, seventeen-year-old, Mt. Henry High School student, Skylar James, is content with it that way. That is until she’s assigned her history partner, rich-boy Kane.
Being invisible at Rushton High School, is just how seventeen-year old Alexandra Harmony likes it. That is until she’s asked to tutor bad-boy Tristan.
What does it take to make opposite yet parallel lives collide
Nerd Girl Melanie’s ARC Review
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Hmmmmmm don’t let the three stars fool you, this is a good book. I liked it, I just didn’t really “feel” it although I am sure there are many readers out there who will feel differently.
For me the 2 different point of views, whilst written in an interesting way, didn’t really work for me. I don’t know if I needed maybe alternating chapters so that I could feel the 2 stories come together for me or what it was but something just didn’t click. Maybe it needed to be longer? The ending especially felt a little rushed.
The characters were well written and showed a nice diverse cross section of high school life but sadly it was not enough for me. Overall it was a quick YA read which I expect many people will fall in love with …. I was just not one of them.

“Tell me about it. I wish I caught some very long lasting disease over the weekend, and then I wouldn’t have to deal with being matched up with a partner in History today.”
“Yeah, hi. I’m, um, Skylar,” I uttered looking at him for the first time. He was your usual jock type; tall broadly built, short dark brown hair that hung too long in the front, nice warm golden eyes. Nice? Warm? Where did I pull that from?
“Kane, Kane wait. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that.” I grabbed his arm to stop him. He turned, grabbed my shoulders and kissed me. It was only a short kiss, but God-all-mighty I felt it right down to my toes. Imagine if he had of used tongue. “And I shouldn’t have done that,” He said and continued to walk off. Alexandra: I couldn’t help it, I gaped. Was she serious? Me, help Tristan, with Math’s. Me in a room alone with Tristan. Me?
“You don’t like me do you?” He asked. I paused what I was doing and looked at him. “I don’t know you. Anyway, would you really care if I didn’t?” He shrugged and stood. “I guess not. See you tomorrow, Alex,” He said and left.
Tristan laughed pulling me close again into his embrace. “You cannot tell me that was your first kiss.” That made me laugh and blush. “Well no, but you’re the second.” “Hmm, I think I like that.” He grinned a big toothy grin which made my insides curl.
