Large group of friends but not really close to any of them OR only a few friends but you're really close to them: Only a few, but they’re the best friends ever. Forever friends, The Terrible Three, the three-headed monster—that’s Zack, Bethany, and me.
Go to the movie theater or wait for the movie to come out on dvd: Go to the movie theater, especially if Cole’s in a romantic mood. He can really make the butterflies show up when he wants to. Our first kiss was at a movie theater!
Lipstick or Mascara: Lipstick, and concealer, but I don’t really want to talk about that. It’s embarrassing.
Sunrise or Sunset: Oh, man, sunset viewed from the top of the spillway, wrapped in Cole’s arms. So beautiful.
Sweet or Salty: Sweet.
Newspaper or Book: Book…of poems.
Poetry or Short Story: Ah, you read my mind! Poetry, all the way! I think maybe one day I’ll be a poet.
Day or Night: Night. Daytime shows bruises too easily.
Computer or Cell Phone: Cell phone, even though it makes it too easy for someone to know where you are at all times.
Bowling or Mini-golfing: Mini-golfing.
Country or Rock Music: Rock music, but I do have a little bit of a soft spot for John Denver. He sang a lot about the mountains and Colorado, an interest we definitely have in common.
Spring or Fall: Fall. Cole and I fell in love in the fall. Fall was a good time for us.
Quiet and reserved or outgoing and boisterous (can answer as both your personality or what you look for in a guy): I’m quiet and reserved, but my friend Zack is outgoing and boisterous, and it’s one of the things I love about him. And love to hate about him, too. But mostly just love.
Striped or Solid Coloured Clothing: Solid.
Skirts or Pants: Pants.
Thank you again for being here today, Alex and Jennifer!
When Alex falls for the charming new boy at school, Cole, a handsome, funny, sports star who adores her, she can't believe she's finally found her soul mate-someone who truly understands her and loves her for who she really is.
At first, Alex is blissfully happy. Sure, Cole seems a little jealous of her relationship with her best friends, Zack and Bethany, but what guy would want his girlfriend spending all of her time with another boy? But as the months pass, Alex can no longer ignore Cole's small put-downs, pinches, or increasingly violent threats. As Alex struggles to come to terms with the sweet boyfriend she fell in love with and the boyfriend whose "love" she no longer recognizes, she is forced to choose - between her "true love" and herself.
