When Susie Thompson starts a new year at Gregory High School, she expects everything will be the same. The same people, same personalities... The only things that would be different are ages, rooms, teachers, and the occasional new student. What she doesn't expect is her boyfriend and best friend to be... Not the same. And on top of that, she'll have to move away... Over seas to America. She'll learn how to cope, and hopefully, leave the past behind her...
