First rule of breakups: There’s no going back.

For three years, seventeen-year-old Grace Evers has regretted breaking up with Sage Castle.

That day, she lost her boyfriend and best friend. And let's be honest, it's impossible to just be friends with the one person who gets you, faults and all, and loved you anyway. It's impossible not to think about how it felt to be held by him, or the way he looked right before he was about to kiss you with the most perfectly yummy kiss goodnight.

And now that things are over between them, they've become strangers to one another. Sage won’t even look at Grace, let alone talk to her!

Breakup life sucks and Grace is utterly miserable, doing whatever she can to ease the pain of losing Sage. She's spent the better part of high school pretending to be something she’s not and hanging out with people who probably wouldn't notice if she wasn't there. Crappy dates, backstabbing friends, and Sage's cold shoulder have taken their toll.

So when her parents propose going away to their house on Lake Michigan for the summer, Grace is thrilled. No more massively bad dates with horrible kissers or lunch with frienemies. Just three months of swimming, hiking, and relaxing before senior year starts.

But when Grace learns Sage and his family will be joining them, she readies herself for a totally awkward family vacation of disastrous proportions. How can it be anything but awful if Sage won't even acknowledge she exists?

This is it, Grace's last chance to get Sage back and unbreakup.

Breaking up with Sage was perhaps the biggest mistake she ever made. Not just she lost her boyfriend, but she lost her best friend as well. They have known each other for such a long time, and loved each imperfections. No one can get them like each other, so it is no wonder why half of her world crumble when she lost him. He wouldn't even talk to her, much less look at her. It was like their friendship never existed. She was miserable.

High school was supposed to be fun, instead she was stuck in her Sage-less life with backstabbing friends, and crappy dates. It was a relief when her parents proposed to have a get away for the whole summer. She was excited - finally away from everything. But she was in for the surprise of her life when she realized it was just like the old-times. Meaning: her family and Sage family spending the Summer together.

It started out as an awkward situation, but his sister thinks this was the time for her and Sage to unbreakup. Can she do it? After three years, will she win back her boyfriend and best friend? Will they get their second chance? Will she have her happy ending?

We all make some mistakes when we were young, and we face the consequences. When it's a life-altering change, it would take sometime before we get back to the 'normal' in our lives. She was young, she made a mistake, and she acknowledged it. She wanted to change it - but it wasn't easy. I admire her determination, and her persistence (especially his sister's - their biggest supporter). Fate was throwing a lot on their way, including summer flings, but nothing gets in the way of true love. There are hurdles, some jealousy and failed cookings - the way to finding your true love or earning it again is not an easy task, but it is all worth it.

For readers who want a characters who are easy to love, clean, light-hearted, second-chance romance read - this one is for you.

“Here you go. Signed. Sealed. Delivered.” Lyncee handed me back my yearbook. “You have to wait until you get home to read it.” “Oh great, what’d you put in here? I hope you didn’t mention anything about me dropping my cell in the toilet.” She laughed. “No. Something better.” I groaned. Her idea of something better meant it could be

anything from embarrassing to, well, more embarrassing. I smoothed down my jean skirt and spun my locker combination for the last time of junior year. Next year, we’d be seniors. We’d have our last homecoming and prom. We’d rule the school and all that crap. To be honest, I was ready to be done with school. Leave the idiots behind. I’d spent the last three years pretending to be someone I wasn’t just to fit in. Lyncee was my only real friend to survive my breakup with Sage. Sage. We hadn’t talked since the end of eighth grade. The day I broke

up with him. He’d stopped picking up my calls and when his parents came over to play cards with mine, he’d stay home. He avoided me at school, online, at soccer tournaments. It was like he’d completely erased me from his life. I never meant to hurt him like that. The truth was, I missed him. A lot. It sucked not having anyone to talk to about the Star Wars marathon they played on Memorial Day, or the new Hobbit trailer, or about the awesome pair of soccer cleats I wanted to get. Not that Lyncee wasn’t there for me, she was, just not in the same way.

Needless to say, I’d spent the last three years regretting mine and Sage’s breakup. I’d trade anything, even my popularity, to have him back. The thing was, I was running out of time to make things right. I’d tried getting over him, but there were some people you just couldn’t leave behind.

Rebekah Purdy grew up in Michigan, where she spent many late nights armed with a good book and a flashlight. When not hiding at her computer and getting lost in her stories, she enjoys reading, singing, soccer, swimming, football, camping, playing video games and hanging out with her kids. She loves the unexplainable like Bigfoot, the Dogman, and the Loch Ness Monster (lots of good story material)! She admits to still having all the books she bought throughout her childhood and teen years, and she may or may not have an obsession with anything chocolate…
