If there’s one thing that Bridgette Reynolds has learned recently, it’s that the perfect shoes, the perfect hair, and the perfect dress do not make for the perfect proposal. In fact, sometimes they make for the not-so-perfect breakup. Now, Bridgette must do everything in her power to win Adam back. She knows they are meant to be. And nothing will stand in her way—not her friends, not her grandmother, not even the fact that Adam is now engaged to Serene after a whirlwind romance. Focused on her plan to win Adam back, Bridgette isn’t expecting Ian—her college best friend, her love, her big regret—to come back into her life. They sink back into their comfortable friendship as if no time has passed at all, making Bridgette start to question her feelings for Adam. But Ian has a few secrets of his own . . . secrets that could shatter their friendship once and for all. Bridgette has to make some major decisions—should she speak now? Or forever hold her peace?

The Stories in My Mind
By Becky Monson



People sometimes ask me how I got into writing. And the truth is, I don’t really know. I know I love to read and when I was in school, I always enjoyed writing essays and those sorts of things. When it came to writing a book, though, that was something I’d never set out to do. In fact, if you would have asked my ten-year-old self what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you that I wanted to be a famous singer. I actually did try to be a famous singer, but clearly that never panned out.



One thing that stands out that I used to do is dream. Not the kind of dreams that you have when asleep, the awake kind-of-dreaming. But it wasn’t day-dreaming either. Sometime around the age of ten, I started doing this thing where during the day, an idea would pop into my head that I thought would make a fun story, and I would tuck it away and tell myself that I would put myself to sleep that night, making up that story. And that’s what I did. They started out as fun princess stories and things like that, but as I got into my teenage years, they would becomemore grandiose. Like the most popular boy in school asks me out in a big dramatic way and the most popular girl in school would be so jealous that she would try to fight me, but somehow magically I’d become a ninja, making the most popular boy fall in love with me immediately. You know, totally normal things that normal people think of. Only, just recently, I found out that no, that was not the norm (my BFF kindly pointed this out to me).



So there’s no particular moment in my life when I decided to become a writer, but really a bunch of things that lead up to it. I’m not totally sure, but if I went back and told my ten year old self that I would not be a singer, but rather a writer, I think she’d be happy about that. Well, I hope she would.
