In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it's worth crossing the line for love...

Lila McCormick first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters-or that she'd fall for the boy she's only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he's never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila's forgiveness-and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.

Lila and Lincoln have a special connection, having only met once, they spent the next two years pouring their hopes and dreams into letters about their lives and personal problems they are having. Everything seemed to be going great until one lie changed everything.
Lila had a dream to study in Florida but she afraid of leaving the comfortable life she had always known and depended on. Lincoln was going to change that, he was going to be with her every step of the way but then he made some mistakes. When he started skipping school and failing, he didn't think about the future, he was still thinking about the past and the brother he lost two years previously. 
They had never lied to each other until now and they both feel as if they lost something they never knew they had. Lila is heartbroken having been lied to and Lincoln is angry at himself for hurting Lila. Though Lincoln can't forget the past, he knows how to fix his mistakes, hoping that in the process he can win Lila back, which he wants more than anything.
Crossing The Line is a truly beautiful story of hurt, loss, love and letters that will make you fall in love with Lila and Lincoln's story. It stretches across counties, years and memories that fill the pages and your heart. 
If I had to sum this book up in one word, it would be Captivating

Another day, another book,
