A lot can happen on a two-week trip to the Canadian wilderness.
Auden Harmon learns her parents’ marriage is over. Expected. Accidentally gifts a five-hundred-dollar pen to a stranger. Unexpected.
Neither event wreaks havoc on her life quite like meeting Elliot Reid does. He has eyes the color of the sky on a cloudy day. A slapshot the whole country has an unhealthy obsession with. The uncanny ability to say the right thing, exactly when she needs to hear it.
They spend time together. Swap secrets. Become best friends.
Tell each other everything.
People say it’s a thin line between love and hate. The line between love and friendship with a boy who makes mammoth-sized butterflies swarm your stomach with one glance? Practically transparent.
But when he’s made it clear friendship is all he has to offer?
You can never say it.
