Raised in a small Pennsylvania town, Jill and Blake seem the unlikeliest match of all. He is a star athlete, but as a football lineman, he is self-conscious about his size. She's a thrill-seeking acrobat and gymnast, a tomboy who prefers computers to boys. Allison, on the other hand, seems to have it all: beauty, brains, talent, and ambition. But epileptic seizures scramble her life and her outlook. All three are upended by a treachery breathtaking in its audacity and shattering in its impact. Can any love withstand a betrayal perfectly fashioned to destroy it? Pocket Piece Cameo is a coming of age story that tests the limits of love's resilience, of loyalty to a promise, of the distance love can travel, and the worst it can endure.

What is true love? How does one define true love? Furthermore, how does one maintain and preserve that ultimate true love, protecting it so that it does not go stale over time? Romantics have pondered these same questions for centuries. Is it possible that one young man, a star football player, can find that epitome of love? Blake Lehrer wants to find true love. In fact, he spends a good deal of his growing-up years studying and searching for the perfect love. He was only six when he decided he had found the love of his life. Denise was quite literally the girl next door. Then he discovers Jill, the younger sister of his good friend, Ellery. But Jill¿s family moves far away and, through lies and deception, their love fails. At university, Blake meets a Denise look-alike and thinks he¿s stumbled on the one true love. He expounds on his theories of love, theories that he has garnered over the years, having studied what he considers to be the masters of romantic love, including Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice; but some of Blake¿s ideals frighten this young lady and she leaves him. There are others avenues of his research; but it is his grandmother who offers the best guidance. It is her story that leads him to believe that he can find what he is looking for. Unfortunately, Blake¿s grandmother dies all too soon and Blake is left to his own devices and his own research to find the love of his life. Will the cameo his grandmother gave him help him discover his dream partner? As he struggles through the ups and downs of growing up, Blake loses the precious cameo, and, for a while, the belief that he will fulfill his dream. Will it be Denise, Jill or the Denise look-alike?
