Together is somewhere they long to be.
Ash Gupta has a life full of possibility. His senior year is going exactly as he’s always wanted-- he's admired by his peers, enjoying his classes and getting the kind of grades that his wealthy, immigrant parents expect. There's only one obstacle in Ash's path: Eden Moore—the senior most likely to become class valedictorian. How could this unpopular, sharp-tongued girl from the wrong side of the tracks stand in his way?

All Eden's ever wanted was a way out. Her perfect GPA should be enough to guarantee her a free ride to college -- and an exit from her trailer-park existence for good. The last thing she needs is a bitter rivalry with Ash, who wants a prized scholarship for his own selfish reasons. Or so she thinks. . .When Eden ends up working with Ash on a class project, she discovers that the two have more in common than either of them could have imagined. They’re both in pursuit of a dream -- one that feels within reach thanks to their new connection. But what does the future hold for two passionate souls from totally different worlds?

Reviews

Praise for The Possibility of Somewhere

"As a romance that reaches across class and ethnicity, then, this refreshes centuries-old dilemmas and effectively situates them in a contemporary classroom. Day ably nuances the social prejudices of a small town, and the classic romance ending points to the possibility of a redemptive future." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books


"Julia Day's modern day tale of Romeo and Juliet meets Pride and Prejudice will touch your heart." - Katie McGarry, bestselling author of Pushing The Limits


“Raw and intense, yet sensitive and touching. This is a story that will keep you hooked till the very end.
-Vanessa Barneveld, author THIS IS YOUR AFTERLIFE.
