Carson Brooks has been my enemy since the day he moved to Sweet Water and tried to drown me in a rogue wave.
Not only are we enemies, but we're not quiet about it either. We're polar opposites. Where I'm a perfectionist and methodical in all things, he is carefree and the life of the party.
While Carson tries to trip me in the halls on a regular basis, I'm busy glaring holes through his disgustingly thick skull. Oh, and did I mention I'm best friends with his little brother? Talk about inconvenient.
But it's our senior year and my life is unraveling. My parents are at each other's throats, I have yet to hear back about early admissions at the college of my choice, and I have no date to the Snowflake Ball. So, when Carson whacks me in the face with a basketball during gym class, I snap. I go for his throat--literally.
Now Sweet Water's principal is giving us a choice: face suspension or find a way to work together on the holiday Angel Project.
Great. As if living in a war zone weren't enough, now I have to spend time with the enemy.
But as tensions rise and we begin spending time together, I realize there's more to Carson Brooks than his cocky exterior. Maybe I like him more than I thought. Maybe a little too much.
