Brielle Jackson and Levi Miller have been friends since they were sixnand we playing pee wee baseball together. Levi is a 6'0, athletic, blonde, fair-skinned, light brown eyed baseball player while Brielle is 5'4 and everything he is except she plays fastpitch softball now, has dark brown eyes and is African American. Their friendship never saw color as a boundary because the status was only that of best friends. As they grew older their friendship just grew stronger and feelings for each other morphed into something more. Coming out of the senior year, Levi tells Brielle some thing that changes the make up of their friendship. Not only will their twelve year friendship be tested by outside forces but they both learn about the hard realities of the world around them. In the end, Brielle will have a decision to make, one that could destroy any chance she may have with the boy who's always had her heart. Can she use the strength, courage and perserverance she's learned from the place she's lived her entire life or will it break the strong young woman she became? Or will the outside forces using race as a divider become a boundary that destroys this friendship and growing love?
