"It makes you feel all the feels. And it lets you know that it's okay to feel it all." -Cookie O'Gorman, The Art of Taking Chances ForewordIn love, you have to leap to feel the rush. From first kisses to second chances and celebrity encounters, this collection of young adult contemporary romance short stories has it all. A forbidden game of truth or dare turns into summer love, a chemistry lab explosion leads to fireworks, a last-minute to-do list...
Someone's out to get me. I just don't know who.
It's been the craziest year of my life, and celebrating graduation with Jon just makes it all feel real. Like maybe I can have my happily ever after.
But then Grandma hands me a graduation card. And there's no address on it. No signature. Just six words from a complete stranger that turn my life upside down.
I'm supposed to be getting ready for college. Dealing with moving away from my friends after...
I don't want to be another statistic.
After everything I've been through, I'm more focused than ever on healing myself and living the kind of life I want. But with my dad up for parole and Jon's athletic career over with a single injury, my dreams are turning into a nightmare.
I have so many questions. How can I heal when everything around me seems so broken? How can I live my life when the person who hurt me might walk free?
And the hardest question...
It's the first day at my new school and I already have a wide load sticker on my back.
But this is still better than life was before. Before I was taken away from my parents. Before I moved in with my grandma.
Before I met Jon Scoller.
He's cute, he lives down the street, but the guy asks way too many questions. Questions about a past I'd rather forget.
And I am not his type. He needs to be with a cheerleader. A perfect girl. Someone who doesn't...
Abi hasn't had an easy life. In fact, the opposite. And when she has to move in with her Grandma midway through her senior year, she thinks it's just getting worse. Little does she know a boy down the street and a rag tag group of friends are about to turn her world - and her heart - upside down.
What happens when the bad boy takes over the school advice column?
The last thing Emerick should be doing is giving anyone advice. His dad's in prison. His mom's buried under credit card debt. And he's one step from failing. After everything his mom's been through, she can't take another disappointment. So when the guidance counselor gives him a choice, anonymously write the school's advice column or drop out, what choice does he really have?
I gave him three rules. Three impossible rules.
I don't want you to know my real name.
We're never going to meet in person.
You don't get to be my prince charming.
When I woke up in the hospital, fatherless and blind, falling in love was my last priority. No, I had to figure out how to live again. And deal with my heinous aunt. Plus her two daughters, aka the 'terrible two'.
But then I got my first letter from Jett.
He shouldn't want anything...
