Ashleigh's boyfriend, Kaleb, is about to leave for college, and Ashleigh is worried that he'll forget about her while he's away. So at a legendary end-of-summer pool party, Ashleigh's friends suggest she text him a picture of herself -- sans swimsuit -- to take with him. Before she can talk herself out of it, Ashleigh strides off to the bathroom, snaps a photo in the full-length mirror, and hits "send."

But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media. As her friends and family try to distance themselves from the scandal, Ashleigh feels completely alone -- until she meets Mack while serving her court-ordered community service. Not only does Mack offer a fresh chance at friendship, but he's the one person in town who received the text of Ashleigh's photo -- and didn't look.

Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.
Oooh. I very much like the sound of this one! And Jennifer Brown is a really good author, so I'm sure that she can pull it off to my satisfaction. Plus it kind of seems like there might be romance involved-- so I'll be one happy girl! Mack sounds like a boy that I'd like to read about. (;

  1. Oh wow, I think I will be extremely frustrated when she sends it (unless the story starts after) because I know what will happen (and because, hello, do NOT do that!) but this does sound good and I look forward to the romance and the writing style!
