    Christen wearing Tobin’s jersey is just a little too much for Tobin to handle...too bad she’s an ocean away.

    Summary

    You see her for the first time when you’re 11: all windswept brown hair pulled back into a ponytail, tanned skin, broad smile. You see her and instantly feel drawn to her. You see her and instantly feel intimidated by her too.
    Both of you are a world away from home, not that you’re sure you have one exactly. You’ve moved a few times already, and when you visit family in the States in the summer, that feels most foreign of all. But Tobin...Tobin Heath, that’s her name, she’s fresh off the plane, new to the country, new to the school, and her mom’s a teacher there just like yours, and it feels like...It’s like maybe…
    You really want to be her friend.

    --

    Christen is 11-years-old and starting middle school and figuring out everything involved with that, and there's a new (older) girl at school who she really, REALLY wants to be friends with.
