The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Available January 7, 2010
Seventeen-year-old Colt has been sneaking out at night to meet Julia, a girl from an upper-class neighborhood unlike his own. They’ve never told anyone else about their relationship: not their family or friends, and especially not Julia’s boyfriend. When Julia dies suddenly, Colt tries to cope with her death while pretending that he never even knew her. He discovers a journal Julia left behind. But Colt is not prepared for the truths he discovers about their intense relationship, nor to pay the price for the secrets he’s kept.
I am sooo curious. I want to know how he got his hands on her journal without getting caught.... because *technically* he didn't even know her! Super excited for this one. :) Why can't 2010 come a little bit faster?! (although the year is going by pretty fast already...oh well! Sandy wants 2010 books!)
What are you waiting for?
