Transferring to a new school isn’t nearly as terrifying for Cori as learning the boy she’s been crushing on is actually a girl.
Cori Wright’s entire world is falling apart. Forced to move right before her senior year, the only connection to her new school is a phone number and a name: Jesse Howell. Their friendship blossoms through text messages leading up until the first day of school when Cori makes a shocking realization.
Jesse isn’t who she thought she was.
Overwhelmed by feelings she never imagined having, Cori must decide: follow her heart and go against everything she’s ever known or play it safe and deny herself happiness.
