Kate Marchant By ToastedBagels Completed

COMPLETED. Camille Settlemeyer's life revolves around two great natural wonders-Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth, and Matt Everest, the boy she's been in love with ever since they met at rock climbing camp five years ago. She might have to wait a few more years before her parents let her fly off to Nepal to scale the world's tallest summit, but this summer Camille's going to hit the road with Matt for one last climbing expedition before they part ways for college. Camille is convinced that a couple days alone with Matt in a beat-up van will make him realize they're destined to be together. 

What she doesn't account for is Matt bringing along his best friend from climbing camp, Tucker O'Hara, who possess an encyclopedic knowledge of the constellations and a sense of humor drier than the sprawling Arizona desert. Camille doesn't like how much of a know-it-all Tuck is, or how his gorgeous older sister seems to steal every last bit of Matt's attention. But Camille's about to learn that even the best climbers need a compass sometimes.

You have no idea how much this means!! I'm from Nepal and most people just look at me and stare like I'm from a different planet when I tell them I'm from Nepal...
