April has a New Year’s resolution to start the year off right—get back together with sweet, funny Billy. They’ve been friends forever, her family loves him, and he’s even class president this year. But she keeps getting stuck on several questions: What does Billy think about her? What’s going on between Billy and their friend Brynn? And why does she feel she needs to keep her friendship with Matt Parker, her hot neighbor, a secret? When Cupid throws April a curve ball, she’s faced with a new problem: how does a girl follow her heart when old friendships, new friendships, and her family’s trust are on the line?
