Publisher's Summary

A brand-new, heart-wrenching story from the best-selling author of If I Stay and I Was Here, Gayle Forman.

Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from home to find the boy that he loves, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City after a family tragedy leaves him isolated on the outskirts of Washington state. 

After the three of them collide in Central Park, they slowly reveal the parts of their past that they haven't been able to confront, and together they find their way back to who they're supposed to be. 

Told over the course of a single day from three different perspectives, this is a story about the power of friendship and being true to who you are. 

Read by Nicole Lewis, Sunil Malhotra and Michael Crouch.

"Not only beautifully written and heartwrenching, but IMPORTANT. Wow. Just, wow." (Sarah Dessen)

"Irresistible tear-jerker." (The New York Times)
