Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year—and decides to keep the baby?
Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister’s impending death. Can he accept Alex’s love, knowing that his life, too, will be shortened?

Read from the Book

Tilt Mikayla My World Tilted Completely off its axis the night I hooked up with Dylan Douglas. It was New Year’s Eve—five months ago—so maybe part of that earth-sway had something to do with the downers, weed and cheap beer, a dizzying combo on an empty stomach. What I know for sure is, when he came slinking up like a cougar—all tawny and temperamental—something inside me shifted. Something elemental. I, probably the oldest prude in my whole junior class, transformed into vamp. When he smiled at me—me!—I knew I had to make him mine. I would have done anything. Turned out, all I had to do was smile back. Just like that, we belonged to each other.
