Three girls. Three stories of passion and love.
Ashley Livingston is in trouble. It’s the first day of her junior year, and she has a way bigger problem than normal first day jitters. That’s because over the summer Ashley and her family ended up vacationing in the same place as one of the most popular boys in school, Austin Givens. Ashley and Austin got super close, sharing late night talks, cool drinks by the pool, and solo outings that lasted all day long. Sounds perfect, right? Wrong. Since Ashley arrived home, Austin’s barely been talking to her. Okay, fine, he’s been totally ignoring her. No text messages. No phone calls. Not even a facebook comment.
Ashley’s upset, but whatever. She pushes her feelings for Austin to the back of her mind, deletes the vacation pics from her digital camera, and forces herself to move on. Out of sight, out of mind, right? But now it’s the first day of school, and there’s no way Austin and Ashley can hide from each other. Will Austin be able to explain himself or will Ashley realize he’s not the guy she once thought? Find out in Kels Barnholdt’s debut novella What’s Meant to Be
How do you heal a broken heart?
It’s a question Stephanie has been asking herself over and over again lately.
From the second she met Rich, Stephanie fell hard. Sure, she got a little too attached to the relationship, and sure she started to neglect some important parts of her life. Like…oh, her family, her friends, and school.
It’s okay, though, because she has Rich, right?
Wrong. Out of nowhere, Rich breaks up with her.
Suddenly, Stephanie finds herself completely alone. She has no one to turn to, and all she wants to do is shut down and hide. But that’s impossible. Because at the worst time, all of her past secrets are coming to the surface. Not to mention that the most popular, and possibly most annoying, boy in school keeps popping up where ever she goes.
Can Stephanie figure out how to get over her broken heart once and for all and figure out how to love again?

All Morgan wants to do the summer before her senior year is relax by the pool, hang out with her BFF Paige, and maybe even find her first ever summer romance. But Morgan’s parents have other plans. Suddenly, Morgan’s being shipped off to Charleston, South Carolina to spend two weeks with her aunt and uncle.
A free vacation on the sandy beaches of Carolina sounds great, right? Wrong. Because along with the free vacation comes Arielle, Morgan’s self-centered cousin who Morgan has less than zero in common with.
Not surprisingly, the vacation starts out as a complete and total disaster -- until Morgan meets the seriously hot and mysterious Alex. And as they spend more time together, Morgan starts to think that South Carolina might not be so bad after all. But when Morgan discovers that Alex isn’t exactly who she thought he was, will she lose her chance at love? Find out in Last Chance Summer by Kels Barnholdt.
