There’s a drawer I never open. It holds a picture I never look at. It reminds me of a day I hate to remember, but I’ll never forget.
I’d give anything to be like the other girls on campus. Going to parties, flirting with boys, planning for a future. But that’s not me. And hasn’t been since the day my parents died. The only thing that got me through was Griffin. Even though I didn’t have my family, I always had him. Only, now I’m not so sure I do.
It’s not just the eleven hundred miles separating us now that I’m at college. Or his band finally taking off, and all the gigs and girls suddenly demanding his time. It’s as if everything is different-the way we talk, the way we text . . . the way he looks at me and the way those looks make me feel.
Griffin has been the only good thing in my life since that horrific day. But I can feel our friendship slipping away-and I’m terrified of what will be left in its place . . .
I enjoy a good friends to lover story so, thank you Grand Central Publishing for my copy of Across the Distance. It is a well written,sweet read of two childhood friends that go their separate ways. Griffin goes off to pursue his career in music while Jillian is at college dealing with a past that still haunts her,along with missing her best friend. You know the age-old saying, distance makes the heart grow fonder…Well, in Across the Distance that’s exactly the case.
