Some Mistakes Were Made
You can’t always go home again.
Ellis and Easton have been inseparable since childhood. But when a rash decision throws ellis’s life—and her relationship with Easton— into chaos. She’s forced to move halfway across the country, far from everything she’s ever known.
Now Ellis hasn’t spoken to Easton in a year, and maybe it’s better that way; maybe eventually the Easton shaped hole in her heart will heal, but when Easton’s mother invites her home for a celebration, Ellis finds herself tangled up in the web of heartache, betrayal, and anger she left behind... and with the boy she never stopped loving.

"A novel you can make yourself at home in, with characters so real it feels like you’ve known them for ages.

This one will stick with you." -Jenna Evans Welch, New York Times bestselling author of Love & Gelato
