From the New York Times bestselling author of One Last Stop and Red, White & Royal Blue comes a debut YA romantic comedy about chasing down what you want, only to find what you need... Chloe Green is so close to winning. After her moms moved her from SoCal to Alabama for high school, she''s spent the past four years dodging gossipy classmates and the puritanical administration of Willowgrove Christian Academy. The thing that''s kept her going: winning valedictorian. Her only rival: prom queen Shara Wheeler, the principal''s perfect progeny. But a month before graduation, Shara kisses Chloe and vanishes. On a furious hunt for answers, Chloe discovers she''s not the only one Shara kissed. There''s also Smith, Shara''s longtime quarterback sweetheart, and Rory, Shara''s bad boy neighbor with a crush. The three have nothing in common except Shara and the annoyingly cryptic notes she left behind, but together they must untangle Shara''s trail of clues and find her. It''ll be worth it, if Chloe can drag Shara back before graduation to beat her fair and square. Thrown into an unlikely alliance, chasing a ghost through parties, break-ins, puzzles, and secrets revealed on monogrammed stationery, Chloe starts to suspect there might be more to this small town than she thought.
