Both on the verge of fame. A ballerina who lies. A baseball player who believes her.
Well, the truth changes everything.
Tally Landon has owned the most tragic story at Paly High since Valentine's Day. By the end of May, she just wants to graduate, pursue her ballet career in New York, and leave this personal tragedy far behind. Her best friend convinces her to attend one last party--a college party--where she meets Stanford's latest baseball wonder. She has a little fun at this guy's expense when she lies about her age and who she really is. After all, what's the harm in lying especially when she's so good at it?
Lincoln Presley's future is all mapped out. There is only baseball and, with the big leagues circling, the star pitcher is solely focused upon his career. His cousin's party serves as a welcome distraction, but then he sees the girl from Valentine's Day--the one he rescued from the burning wreckage on the 101. He can't quite hide his disappointment when she appears to look right through him, but he vows to learn her name at least. What would be the harm in getting to know this girl? What's the worst that can happen?
Fate brings them together. Fame & lies tear them apart. One truth remains...
