A charming and deep young adult romance. Belle Acton’s spectacular debut reminds readers; happiness can be found in surprising places. 

Izzy and Em have been besties at their girls boarding school forever. Things get complicated when they join classes with boys from the brother school across the road.

Em gets her first serious crush on a boy - the gorgeous and notorious, Dominic. She stops at nothing to capture Dom's attention and won't shut up about it when they hook up.

Izzy has bigger problems to worry about than playing second fiddle to the hottest boy in school. Back home, her mum is battling cancer, bringing new meaning to everything.

When Em goes to Japan over the summer, she persuades Dom to agree to some ‘summer rules’ - a bit of fun meant to keep him on his toes. The rules are simple. No kissing other girls. No falling in love.

Em enlists a reluctant Izzy to enforce the rules. Now Izzy must hang out with Dom over the summer, and he’s not making it easy. Honestly, the guy is slippery!

An unexpected trip to Byron Bay changes everything. Despite his bad boy reputation, Izzy discovers that Dom really is all that.

When, everything spirals out of control, Izzy finds herself wondering if rules are made to be broken.

 A coming-of-age story about friendship, family, and first love. Perfect for fans of Colleen Hoover, Ginger Scott and Anna Todd.
