Overview

It’s 1989 and Rachel Hill is the girl most likely to succeed. And the girl most likely to have everything under control ... that is, until her father invites the moody Nick McGowan to live with them. With the help of her best friend Zoe, Rachel battens down the hatches in preparation for Nick McGowan to move into her old bedroom and into her life.

Nick immediately labels Rachel as uptight. With bad taste in music. Rachel immediately labels Nick a no-hoper. With a bad attitude.

But it’s a secret from Nick’s past that will draw them together and make the year Nick McGowan came to stay one that Rachel will never forget.

From the bestselling author of The Girl Most Likely.
