About the Book
Told from their differing viewpoints, high schoolers Tara, an athlete, Whitney Blaire, a beauty, and Pinkie, a mother hen, face problems in various relationships but the most devastating occurs when Tara finds herself attracted to a girl Whitney Blaire hates.
From the Publisher
When a rumor starts circulating that Tara''s boyfriend Brent has
been sleeping with one of the guy cheerleaders, the innuendo
doesn''t just hurt Tara. It marks the beginning of the end for an
inseparable trio of friends. Tara''s training for a marathon, but
also running from her fear of abandonment after being deserted by
her father. Whitney Blaire seems to have everything, but an empty
mansion and absentee parents leave this beauty to look for meaning
in all the wrong places. And Pinkie has a compulsive need to mother
everyone to make up for the mom she''s never stopped missing. This
friendship that promised to last forever is starting to break under
the pressure of the girls'' differences.
And then new-girl Riley arrives in school with her long black hair,
athletic body, and her blasé attitude, and suddenly Tara starts to
feel things she''s never felt before for a girl--and to reassess
her feelings about Brent and what he may/may not have done. Is Tara
gay--or does she just love Riley? And can her deepest friendships
survive when all of the rules have changed?
