Finley and Betty's close friendship survived Fin's ninth-grade move from their coastal Maine town to Manhattan.

Althea Carter and Oliver McKinley have been best friends since they were six; she's the fist-fighting instigator to his peacemaker, the artist whose vision balances his scientific bent. Now, as their junior year of high school comes to a close, Althea has begun to want something more than just best-friendship. Oliver, for his part, simply wants life to go back to normal, but when he wakes up one morning with no memory of the past three weeks, he can't deny any longer that something is seriously wrong with him. And then Althea makes the worst bad decision ever, and her relationship with Oliver is shattered.
Seit ihrem sechsten Lebensjahr sind Althea und Oliver unzertrennlich. Spielen zusammen, schwimmen im Atlantik, betrinken sich an Halloween. Küssen sich das erste Mal. Im Juni. Und als Oliver das nächste Mal aufwacht, ist es August. Nichts ist mehr, wie es einmal war. Denn Oliver leidet an einem seltenen Syndrom, das ihn wochenlang schlafen lässt.
