"I''m not picking Cartwright just because I met Julian there. For all I know he''ll change his mind and not even go! Although that would be a shame because I want him to be the father of my firstborn child. KIDDING! :-}"

While on a college visit, Chloe meets Julian, another prospective freshman, and infatuated, the two high school seniors begin a long-distance relationship. Chloe is thrilled that she''ll have a boyfriend at college, although she doesn''t know how to break the news to Eli, her best friend whom she''s sort of dating.
As Chloe and Julian prepare to meet again, they must face the question of whether their relationship is based on who they really are or who they imagine each other to be.

Read from the Book

Chapter One: April Subj: Are You Out There? Date: 4/22/02, 9:37 A.M. From: smallboyonherbike@boscore.com To: jghost@flowire.com Hey Julian! Some weekend, huh? I was so tired last night, but couldn''t sleep at all -- got up at 3 A.M., took my guitar into the downstairs bathroom (most soundproof place in the house), and started writing a new song. Too soon to tell if it''s any good. (Maybe if I could hear you sing it, I''d know.) :) I was so worried beforehand about going to visit Cartwright to meet hundreds of potential new classmates. You know, it sounded so perfect in the catalog, but what if I got there and hated the place? What if all the other pre-frosh were jerks? Or what if they were all brilliant or something? But I loved it, didn''t you? Especially the open mic night -- that sold me. Now I keep thinking, what if I hadn''t applied to Cartwright, or what if I''d chosen a college based on something totally not important, like the advice of my guidance counselor (who thinks if you don''t go to Harvard you should just forget about it and go to a state school). I told my parents to send in the money to Cartwright today! You''re probably too busy for much e-mailing this week since Godspell opens on Friday. After hearing you sing Saturday night I know you''ll be amazing. Break a leg! (Do people really say that? Or just dorks like me?) Chloe Subj: The Great Unknown Date: 4/22/02, 9:57 A.M.

Editorial Reviews

"Wittlinger''s novel - about genuinely connecting, not just communicating - will hook readers, both with its lovestruck but thoughtful main characters and with its realistic-looking but easy-to-follow layout of e-mails, instant messages, and handwritten letters flying back and forth among the protagonists and their friends and family."
