Eighteen-year-old Devon longs for two things.
And the boy she fell in love with last summer.
When Ashton breaks Devon’s heart at the end of the most romantic and magical summer ever, she thinks her heart will never heal again. But over the course of the following year, Devon finds herself slowly putting the broken pieces back together.
Now it’s senior year, and she’s determined to enjoy every moment of it as she prepares for a future studying the galaxies. That is, until Ashton shows up on the first day of school. Can she forgive him and open her heart again? Or are they doomed to repeat history?
From debut author, Ronni Davis, comes a stunning novel about passion, loss, and the power of first love.

Who is one of the most important relationships in your life and why?
I can’t narrow it down to one because I have a lot of important people in my life. My husband Adam, my son Aidan, my bestest friends Rena and Jennifer and Wanda, my mommy. There are more, too. They all play very important specific roles in my life and I can’t imagine picking any of them over another. I’m really very lucky.
What’s some advice you’d give to someone who has had their heart broken?
The first main I want to say is that it’s OK to grieve. I feel like people are expected to pick themselves off and get on with things after something major and painful happens, and most of us just don’t work like that. So, grieve what you hoped for, what was and is no longer. Take care of yourself. Then, when you’re ready, put all the focus on you and getting yourself back to happy. One thing I liked doing was anything my ex didn’t like but I loved…I indulged in it. I found music that spoke to me. I spent time taking care of me. And journaling or having friends who will listen and comfort you. Processing the feelings is super important, but also, realize when it’s time to let go and move on and become a better you.
Describe your perfect night of staying home (i.e. what activities do you do, what food would you have for dinner, is dessert involved?)
I am a TOTAL homebody, so this question is right up my alley!! My perfect night of staying home involves comfy clothes (usually leggings and a soft T-Shirt), and being curled up with a fuzzy blanket and a good book. No noise from neighbors, the cats are settled and cuddly, and the place smells like my favorite incense. Dinner would mostly likely be spaghetti. I make it very simple: noodles (boiled with butter and salt), Hunt’s tomato sauce, a sprinkle of garlic and onion powder, and parmesan cheese…but I promise it’s super yummy! The best dessert would be something chocolatey but accented with fruit. Like a dark chocolate cake with cherries. What would make it even better is if I didn’t have to go anywhere for the next few days after, because then I could really sink into relaxing.
Ronni Davis grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, where she tried her best to fit in—and failed miserably. After graduating from The Ohio State University with a BA in Psychology, she worked in insurance, taught yoga, and became a cat mom.
Now she lives in Chicago, where by day she copy edits everything from TV commercials to billboards, and by night she writes contemporary YA about brown girls falling in love. When she’s not writing, you can catch her playing the Sims, eating too much candy, or planning her next trip to Disney World.
