"Number one rule in my book - don't fall in love with your best friend." "Because we all know how that ended last time." ♫ Emily Maisonwood always thought she would grow up and marry Lucas Elmhirst, her childhood best friend. Until he did something she could never forgive him for. Now they're in their final year at Hilverton College, an exclusive high school separated into three competing houses. Emily leads the Cernette Hawks, with her best friend, Watson Langley, against the Landor Tigers and the Prisley Wolves. She knows if she can just make it through this year, and make it through this war, she can escape this school, this city, the history and the memories. But Lucas is trying to push his way back into her life. He knows something about their past - and her father's past - that Emily doesn't know.
