Based on the winning entry to William Morrow's 'Greatest Love Story Never Told' contest, an unforgettable novel of love, heartbreak, and glorious second chances - all the more magical because it's true!
From the moment she saw Jimmy LaGarenne riding his bike down her neighbourhood street, eight-grader Nanci DeSerio was smitten. But it wasn't until three years later, the first time she saw Jimmy cry, that they truly fell in love. Both were growing up in the liberating but confusing sixties as children of Brooklyn cops.
They knew by the age of 19 they'd be together forever. But fairytales end, and real life can be the enemy of romance . . .
