    Summary

    They’ve hated each other since they met in the 2009 NCAA final. Christen thinks Tobin is cocky and insensitive. Tobin thinks Christen is uptight and far too serious. Fast forward 6 years and the two women find themselves sharing a room during the 2015 World Cup. This could get interesting…

    (a.k.a. the story of how the 2015 World Cup flipped their worlds upside down and then shook them like snow globes)

    Summary

    You could lose everything in a day and no one would ever know.
    One day she would tell them, she wouldn't have much of a choice. But that wouldn't be for a while. It still hurt too much.

    Tobin struggles through a horrible loss at a young age and her foster family and neighbours help bring the light back into her eyes.
    AKA - Tobin moves in with baby Mal and next door to Christen at age 13. Cue hormones and adorableness.

    On a permanent hiatus - apologies.

    A: It really was maybe the only redeeming point, getting to kick it with you. Thanks for helping me out.

    A: I would like to point out though that we are in fact...talking right now. Oh shit, the wonders of technology! We don’t actually have to miss talking to each other if we don't feel like it, do we?

    Right away, she gets a response message agreeing: No, we don’t.

    Summary

    “Christen? It…it is you, right?” Tobin sounded a bit unsure now.

    Christen wanted to say something but she felt like she’d forgotten how to speak - like she was 15 again meeting Tobin for the first time. Her eye had caught the light reflecting off something on Tobin’s finger and she was certain she was going to pass out.

    Right there, right where she saw Tobin put it on 12 years ago, was Christen’s ring.

    “You know I waited for you. I waited for you until that loud u-17 coach threatened to make me run laps for the whole camp. I was so sure you were going to walk into the changing room, Christen. Where did you go?"

    Summary

    Tobin is the waterfront director at Camp Coldwood. She has been for a few years now, and she's really good at it. She would do anything for the camp, and is skeptical that the new person Kelley hired has what it takes to be the super counselor Coldwood needs.

    Christen hasn't been to her childhood summer camp since she was a kid. At the insistence of her best friend from Stanford, she is returning for the summer, this time as staff. She has a lot to learn about the job, and must earn the respect of her peers, especially that of the seemingly perfect waterfront director.

    When Christen Press picks up and moves to a tiny town in Oregon at the recommendation of an old friend, her only goals are to forget her dark past, keep her secrets, and stay under the radar. But after she accidentally crash-lands into town with all eyes on her, she finds herself forced to choose between the life of solitude she'd planned and the friendships she'd always dreamed of-- especially with the town's charming It-Girl, Tobin Heath.
