De 17-jarige Sammie weet precies wat ze wil: met de hoogste cijfers haar eindexamen halen en het kleine plaatsje waar ze woont voorgoed de rug toekeren. Dan hoort ze dat ze een zeldzame ziekte heeft die haar herinneringen van haar zal stelen. En zo wordt het geheugenboek geboren. Sammie schrijft aan haar toekomstige zelf: over waar ze haar studieboeken opbergt, op wie ze verliefd is en wie haar hart heeft gebroken, en over haar oude jeugdvriend die er alles aan doet haar aan het lachen te maken, en haar tot het einde toe te steunen… (Beschrijving Bol.com)

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she decides to do the unthinkable…convince the cute guy waiting to pick up his sister to pretend to be her boyfriend for the night. The task is simple: two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

The problem is that days after prom, she can’t stop thinking about her fill-in boyfriend. But can Gia turn her fake boyfriend into a real one without exposing her lie and possibly destroying her friendships and her newfound relationship?

Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Kasie West’s talent shines in this tale of one girl’s unexpected quest to find love…and possibly herself. (Beschrijving Bol.com)

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true? (Beschrijving Bol.com)
