that’s not the end of our story.
I met Sylvie Cranston when I was ten years old. Back then, she was the
annoying, weird girl who had moved next door and got me in trouble. But by
twelve, we became friends when I taught her how to bait a fishing line and she
showed me the value of a selfless act. At fourteen, she owned my heart.
At seventeen, she died.
Or so I was told. But I don’t believe it. Sylvie is part of my soul. I would
know if she was no more. I searched and prayed for her to come back to me.
Finally, I just waited for her.
Ten years later, she strolled into the English lit course I taught. Only this
girl claimed her name was Sophie Becker and she had no idea who I was. But I’m
not giving up. I’m going to get the girl I love back and protect her from the
danger that took her away all those years ago.
My name is Caleb Tanner and this is our story.
at the age of four from India. Since then, all she’s done is collect words.
After receiving the best gift ever from her parents—her very own library
card—she began reading everything she could get her greedy hands on. At
sixteen, a friend asked her to make up a story featuring the popular bad boy at
school. This wasn’t fan fiction…it was friend fiction. From that day on, she’s
known she wanted to be a writer. With the goal of making her readers both laugh
and cry, MK Schiller has penned more than a dozen books, each one filled with
misfit characters overcoming obstacles and finding true love.
Sylvia was 10 when she moved and became Caleb’s neighbor. She was viewed by the other people in town as different but over time a deep friendship developed between her and Caleb which evolved into love. She always held a part of herself back and when they were 16 he was told she passed away but he believes he would feel it if she was truly gone however he has never been able to find her.
Nine years later a girl that feels like Sylvia, even though she calls herself Sophie, is a student in his class. He can’t let go of the thought that she is the only girl he has ever loved but will uncovering the truth place her in danger that Caleb won’t be able to protect her from?
This story had the perfect combination of steam and suspense and I really liked the flashbacks to their relationship when they were younger.
