Take Romeo and Juliet. Add The Outsiders. Mix thoroughly. Colt and Julia were secretly together for an entire year, and no one?not even Julia?s boyfriend? knew. They had nothing in common, with Julia in her country club world on Black Mountain and Colt from down on the flats, but it never mattered. Until Julia dies in a car accident, and Colt learns the price of secrecy. He can?t mourn Julia openly, and he?s tormented that he might have played a part in her death. When Julia?s journal ends up in his hands, Colt relives their year together at the same time that he?s desperately trying to forget her. But how do you get over someone who was never yours in the first place?

Colt definitely didn't come from Black Mountain, and no one would have understood why they were togeather. But it nev...
Alrighty... This book reminded me a bit of [b:Looking for Alaska|99561|Looking for Alaska|John Green|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41DW9GX92PL._SL75_.jpg|919292] by John Green, but I think it fell quite a bit short of the standard that Alaska set. I couldn't really connect with or care about...
