We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Peyton and Jace had a brief but intense long-distance fling. They reunite at a Florida wedding, and Jace offers to drive her home to Connecticut. Fluid back-and-forth narration with flashbacks explains what caused their quick end (it isn't very interesting), and why Peyton is actually plotting to run away (much more compelling). A conceptually similar companion to Two-Way Street.

Gr 9 Up—Peyton Miller and her long-distance ex-boyfriend Jace Renault are reunited at a wedding in Florida. The reasons for their breakup are not initially made clear and both are anxious about their meeting. Their chemistry is instantly revived and then extinguished in yet another mysterious falling out. Their backstory is pieced together as they embark on a spontaneous and ill-planned road trip to deliver Peyton to her home in Connecticut. However, Peyton is secretly planning to go off on her own once they reach North Carolina so she can escape the hardships and anxiety surrounding her parents' impending divorce. The mystery of the teens' relationship, brief as it turns out to be, and their unexplained estrangements, fuel the plot. Readers are left wondering why they keep coming back together. Though the two voices are barely distinguishable, the alternating viewpoints infuse events with romantic tension and the drama of the misunderstood intentions. The ending is satisfying but somewhat convenient given Peyton's desire to abandon her mother's habit of relying on men for money and problem solving. Readers willing to forgive these minor flaws will race to the end of this light summer read.—Lynn Rashid, Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville, MD
