Daniel says: life caused me to grow up fast. Real fast. Like overnight.
Krista says: The real me—the one who knew I should treat Daniel the way I’d want to be treated—was angry at the other me. I just didn’t want to lose Bobby by taking sides with Daniel.
Daniel and Krista used to be inseparable. Now that they’re older, they’ve drifted apart—but when an accident leaves Daniel temporarily paralyzed, he needs his old friend more than ever. And Krista wants to help him. Only it’s not as easy as it seems, not when Krista’s feelings for another boy, Bobby, keep getting in the way. And it doesn’t help that Daniel and Bobby were both star swimmers—before Daniel’s accident, that is. Growing up is hard on everyone, but it’s up to Krista to prove how strong friendship can be.
