MFOB FEATURED BOOK: Infinite in Between

They met at freshman orientation and made a promise to reunite at graduation. But a lot happens in four years of high school. Gregor is quietly, desperately in love with Whitney until a tragedy transforms his world. Zoe is running from everything: her celebrity mom, a public scandal, a long-held family secret, and, ultimately, herself. Jake has a crush on his best friend, Ted. Beautiful Whitney seems to have it together, but looks can be deceiving. And Mia watches them all but doesn’t say a word until it’s almost too late. Five teenagers. Four years. An unforgettable journey.
