Meet Reed Davis, king of the social ladder at Greenville High School, mechanical enthusiast, and jock extraordinaire. Reed has never been the type to like girls—rather, he's the type to be liked. Enter September Jones. September Jones is unlike any girl Reed has ever laid eyes on. She's intelligent, beautiful... and she's the first to have ever rejected him. She's perfect in every sense of the word—except for one tiny problem. After a year of finally securing a close friendship with September, she breaks the news to Reed that she's leaving their small Oregon town and moving across the world to finish school. As September packs her bags, Reed is faced with a heart-wrenching decision: asking her to stay for his sake, or letting his first real love go.
