An unputdownable novel about questioning what you believe in and believing in what you feel.
Bryce has always known how he feels about Juli. She is weird. And dangerous. She has a certain way of looking at him which has freaked him out since the first time she hurled herself into his life.
Juli has a tendency to do that. She throws herself into things she believes in, whether they're people or projects. Or trees. Juli has always known how she feels about Bryce. He has been walking around with her first kiss for years.
It's those bright blue eyes. She would love it if he ever reciprocated with even a tiny echo of her enthusiasm.
Luckily she's always busy anyway - raising chickens, trying to protect a tree, visiting her uncle, cleaning up her yard.
But then Juli discovers Bryce has betrayed her trust and is a coward.
A chicken. She is forced to re-consider her feelings. Is he really that great a guy? Meanwhile, everything Bryce thought he believed is slowly being turned on its head. And what he once found annoying in Juli has become fascinating.
Is it too late - or can the relationship between them be flipped?
