Cassandra Carmichael has had a terrible year. Her parents are getting divorced, destroying whatever facade of family they had left. College is so much harder than she anticipated. Freshman year sucks so far. And on top of that, her roommate is the most obnoxious human on the planet. But tonight, all of her problems are going to disappear when she sees Jake Turner and his band play live at Graffiti's Battle of the Bands. Cass knows three very important facts about Jake and this night:1. She loves Jake Turner. She's loved him since she was five years old and he moved in next door.2. Nobody has ever been cooler than Jake Turner. He's perfect boyfriend material to complement her brand new rebel without a care reputation.3. Jake Turner will erase every bad memory of this year and give her the happily ever after she's secretly always longed for. If only she could find him. And talk to him. If only she could get Troy Cameron to leave her alone. Just because they sit by each other in English 101 does not mean they're friends. Or that she thinks he's hot. Or that he's exactly the guy she needs tonight. --Provided by publisher.
