YOU CALL THIS A WELCOME?

I’D BEEN BACK ON THE CANTERWOOD CREST Academy campus for an hour and I already felt trapped. Not a feeling I’d imagined experiencing on my first day of eighth grade.

But it was true. If I left my dorm, I could get caught between Jacob—my ex–almost-boyfriend who suddenly wanted me back—and Eric—my amazing boyfriend who still didn’t know that Jacob had confessed his feelings to me the day before summer break.

I sat at the edge of my still-unmade bed and took a deep breath, wanting to stay in the safety of my room. I wished my BFF and roommate, Paige Parker, would hurry through her parental good-byes. I needed girl advice stat!

I considered the possibilities:

Out There—I might run into Jacob. That was not good. But I also wanted to see Eric, and with the “no boys allowed in Winchester Hall—ever!” rule, running into him here was highly unlikely. Unless he wanted to risk death by Livvie, my dorm monitor.

Plus, even though I didn’t want to leave, I kind of had to. My riding coach, Mr. Conner, was holding a team meeting at the stable in half an hour. I couldn’t risk being late—it was the first meeting for the Youth Equestrian National Team. After spending most of my summer riding at YENT camp, there was no way I could be late to the first meeting.

I stepped around my matching pink suitcases and checked my reflection in the full-length mirror, wanting to look pretty but casual when I saw Eric for the first time since before summer vacay. I ran my fingers through my light brown hair and flicked a stray eyelash off my cheek. A coat of Cherry Blossom gloss was all I needed—it was so hot outside that any more makeup would run.

I peeled off the wrinkled shirt I’d worn on the two-hour drive from home and pulled a new one from my open suitcase. The cotton-candy pink “I New York” baby tee looked cute with my jean skirt. I’d gotten the T-shirt when I spent a couple of weeks this summer in NYC with Paige.

I smiled as I looked around our room—glad that we’d gotten approval to be roommates again in our familiar seventh-grade dorm room. Despite my worry about running into Jacob, I was beginning to feel better about being here.

Going 2 the stbl 4 mtg. U? I texted Eric.

I pulled on my paddock boots and glanced at my laptop. Just one quick check for any school announcements, I told myself.

Zero new messages.

The mouse hovered over my “save these!!” folder. After a moment’s hesitation, I clicked on the message I’d been staring at all summer long. From: Jacob Schwartz. Subject: Sasha, please read. 6/27. 7:46 p.m.

There was no reason to open that e-mail. None. I should have deleted it the second I’d gotten it this summer. After all, I had a boyfriend. Only horrible girlfriends saved e-mails from other guys—especially other guys currently dating their BFFs. What was wrong with me? But instead of erasing the message, I opened it and read it for the thousandth time.


Sasha,
I had to try again to tell you how sorry I am for the way I acted at the Sweetheart SoirÉe. I know you’re with Eric and I’m dating Callie, but I can’t give up. Not when I still like you so much. You know I don’t want to hurt Callie and I’m sure you feel the same about Eric, but you can’t ignore the truth—there’s something between us. I hope you e-mail or text me back or something. If not, I’ll see you at school. Have a great time at YENT camp.

—Jacob

Not that I’d needed to read the e-mail again to know what it said. I’d had it for three months and now every single word had become stuck in my brain. Just like the look on his face when he’d found me in the courtyard minutes before I’d left to go home last year—the first time he’d told me he wanted me back. I’d run from him then, not answering, and hadn’t replied to any of his messages all summer.

My phone buzzed and I jumped. With shaky fingers, I grabbed my phone.

BRT! Can’t wait 2 c u.

Eric. He was the guy I wanted, not Jacob. Just thinking about seeing Eric after a summer apart made me grin. I couldn’t wait to see his creamy coffee-brown skin and his thick, dark hair that sometimes fell in front of his eyes.

Jacob would have to figure out how to deal.

I shut down the computer and left the dorm, hurrying down the glossy wooden floors of the hallway and stepping around luggage that was stacked outside dorm room doors. Eric was waiting for me. What happened with Jacob—his confession, the e-mail—none of it mattered. Eric and I were happy together. Jacob was too late.

In this book every single chapter makes you want to read more!!!!! Once I got this book there was nonstop reading all day!!!!! In Little White Lies Sasha is trying to hide somthing that could destroy several relationships. Eveything is going perfectly until her party on Friday night. This is when she has to lie to her best friend just to protect her. And that is what destroys their friendship. At the end of this book I was dieing to get Rival Revenge!!!!!

JACOB IS SUCH A JERK!!! He should just leave Sasha alona so she can be with Eric. Eric and Sasha are the perfect couple. Jacob should have taken Sasha when he had the chance and she was SINGLE!!! But no! He gets jealous of Eric so he has to sway Sasha's thoughts away from Eric and to Jacob. Great book though:)

This is one of my favorite CC books-of course they all are my favorite :) Sasha's back at Canterwood for 8th grade. So she has two BFFs-Paige and Callie-a boyfriend-Eric-an enemy-Jasmine-and frenemies-the Trio. But then there's the problem that Jacob told her he likes her-when he's dating CALLIE!!! Desperate for her friends and boyfriend not to know the truth, Sasha lies about basically everything. She struggles to keep everything a secret, and at her 13th birthday party, the lies come crashing down. Now Sasha must make things right. Will she and Callie ever be friends again? Will Paige find out the truth. Read book 7 to find out!

Ugggg! Jacob should have left Sasha alone! He put her in a horrible position and made her feel guilty! He went behind Callie and Eric's backs to get back the taken girl who he ruined his chance with. And at the end, he lets her take the blame for u know what!!!!! My point: Im not a great fan of Jacob!! :( :( Love the series though!! :)

So.. Sasha kissed Jacob the Jerk. Callie should totally have slapped Jacob while they were in the act. Too bad Eric saw them. I hope Eric gets back with Sasha soon. They were perfect together. I usually write long reviews, but there'really nothing much left to say except that if you've read my other reviews on other canterwood crest books the you know I hate Jacob the Jerk.

Ok my problem is that i went to camp last month and fell in love with a guy named Logan. I REALLY liked him and he might have liked me too. But the only problem was that he is a year older than me so i dont think i will see him next year. I only dream about him i only think about him. Every time i close my eyes i see him. And it malkes my chest hurt. But i have a very dark secret that if i think i were to get him involved i could hutt him. What do i do?:(

I love this book! I cant believe that in the end of the book Jacob does that to Sasha! He is one bad boy! LOL! I am on the 7th book now! It is good so far, but I don't want Sasha to lie all the time like that! If Sasha tells Callie that it was actually Jacob that did it,then she should believe in Sash!!!!!!!!
