Forgetting Yesterday
by Ava Wood
Genre: YA Romance
Release Date: October 28th 2016

Missy Shaw thought she had her life planned out perfectly; do well in school, take her basketball team to state, and get a free ride to college. Her life wasn't perfect, but it was constant. With her best friend Karley at her side, she could handle anything.


After the death of her mother, however, her dad had other plans. Moving Missy from everything she knew in Kansas to the great unknown created a new set of problems. Attending a new school, all she really wanted was to be invisible, but that simple feat proved difficult when she had a run-in with the school's basketball star, Adam Miller, on her very first day.

Adam is every girl's dream; charming, sweet, and gorgeous. And for some reason, he's very interested in Missy. His attentiveness is unnerving as Missy does everything in her power to evade his interest. Living with secrets she's not willing to share, Missy works to push Adam away in order to keep her family safe. But will keeping secrets really keep her safe?

We walked side by side, our hands brushing as we strolled along. I could feel my hands begin to tremble, aching to reach for his. I needed to get my mind off of what we were doing, and fast.

“You think the water will be cold?”

Adam grinned deviously. “Oh yeah.”

“What?” Now I was rethinking the whole swimsuit.

“Relax, Kansas. You’ll be fine.” He grabbed my hand and tugged me down the beach to a public restroom, grabbing his swim trunks from the bag before handing it to me. “I’ll meet you back out here in a minute.”

I stood, holding the shopping bag in my hand, just staring at him. A pep talk was definitely in order if I was going to expose myself to the cold ocean water.

Starting for the first stall I began coaching myself trying to build up a little courage. “Okay, Missy. You’re from Kansas, so you can definitely handle the cold. Quit freaking out and just do it.” As I stepped inside, a woman from the adjoining stall stepped out, all the while rolling her eyes.
