Description

Ash Gupta is having an amazing senior year, hanging out with his tight circle of friends and cranking out the grades his wealthy, immigrant Asian Indian parents expect. A model student in every way, Ash is on track to earn every school honour there is...except one. It looks as if valedictorian will go to the anti-social, foul mouthed girl who has been a thorn in his side throughout high school, and that's just not a part of Ash's or his parents' plan. Eden Moore's biggest goal is to escape the poverty that haunts her family. When she's not babysitting a special needs boy, managing the high school website, or attending classes, she's studying her ass off. Her perfect GPA should be enough to win her the class valedictorian title, and with it, an endorsement for the full-ride Peyton Scholarship. Eden's sure this is her chance to get out of her dead end town and her trailer park life for good, until she discovers that the arrogant, rich Ash also wants the title and the scholarship that will come along with it - for the f prestige. To both of their surprise, when Eden and Ash are forced to work together on a school project, sparks fly.
As they spend more time together, antagonism changes to romance. They start a secret relationship, even though they're on opposite sides of nearly every social hierarchy their friends and families can imagine - race, class, social status. Can they put all that behind them and start something real?

Review quote

"As a romance that reaches across class and ethnicity, then, this refreshes centuries-old dilemmas and effectively situates them in a contemporary classroom. Day ably nuances the social prejudices of a small town, and the classic romance ending points to the possibility of a redemptive future." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books


"Julia Day's modern day tale of Romeo and Juliet meets Pride and Prejudice will touch your heart." - Katie McGarry, bestselling author of Pushing The Limits


"Raw and intense, yet sensitive and touching. This is a story that will keep you hooked till the very end.
-Vanessa Barneveld, author THIS IS YOUR AFTERLIFE.
