After spending one year apart, two lovers reunite for a weekend in which the past spills into the present, suspends the future, and defies both time and space.
Living in the numb aftermath of his older brother's tragic death, seventeen-year-old Thomas Hart returns home and tries to build a new life for himself after spending six months institutionalized for attempting suicide. He starts seeing a therapist, attending a different high school, and making new friends, but completely abandons his old reputation as a champion swimmer. Which is a pity, because he can't seem to get resident star athlete Ethan Cooper out of his head. With dimples and a kind touch that unravels him, Ethan is everything Thomas can't have right now, can't be -- because there's no going back to the person he was before the accident. But can Thomas become someone new...and someone capable of falling in love?
DEFY THE STARS
A love letter from someone who's never written one before, to someone they are, for some reason, absolutely certain exists.
