Top Ten (Hardcover)
Top Ten is told from the perspectives of Ryan and Gabby, and details their top ten moments together. Ryan is Mr. Popular jock, who is a social butterfly, but Gabby is quiet, anxious,and antisocial. Somehow this works, and their friendship holds strong through all four years of high school. I really liked this book because of the layout. It managed to tell a whole story in a different order. For example, she would talk about something that happened senior year, then next would be sophomore, then it would tie back in with what happened in senior year. The whole book was fun, romantic, and a total page turner.— Peyton, Student at Excel Academy in Arvada, CO
The newest stunning and unforgettable contemporary realistic romance from the New York Times bestselling author of 99 Days, Fireworks, and How to Love. Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Morgan Matson.
Ryan McCullough and Gabby Hart are the unlikeliest of best friends. Prickly, anxious Gabby would rather do literally anything than go to a party. Ultra-popular Ryan is a hockey star who can get any girl he wants—and frequently does. But somehow their relationship just works; from dorky Monopoly nights to rowdy house parties to the top ten lists they make about everything under the sun.
Now, on the night of high school graduation, everything is suddenly changing—in their lives, and in their relationship. As they try to figure out what they mean to each other and where to go from here, they make a final top ten list: this time, counting down the top ten moments of their friendship.
