Throwing My Life Away

· Liz Czukas

About this ebook

 She has two weeks to get it all back.Mariska Bokori never thought she'd spend her last two weeks of summer planning a fake prom, almost getting arrested in her pajamas, or falling for a guy with such an awful haircut. But that was before her stepfather accidentally threw away all her high school mementos.
Now, armed with only her trusty camera and a deep-seated fear of leaving for college, Mariska is determined to recreate some of her favorite moments before her friends are scattered to the four corners of higher education. There's no time to lose, and there's certainly no time to be almost kissing Caine Fitzgibbon at every turn. They're just friends. And he thinks her plan is "unnecessary." But what does he know? He's about as sentimental as a park bench.
Except, somehow, he's always there. And it turns out he might just know a thing or two about losing your past, if Mariska is willing to listen.
