Bestselling author Julie Cross teams up with international

model Mark Perini to create You Before

Anyone Else, a poignant and authentic contemporary YA novel and companion

to Halfway Perfect.

The supportive friend, the reliable daughter, the

doting big sister: Finley is used to being the glue that holds everyone

together. But while her sweet demeanor makes her the perfect confidant, her

wholesome look isn’t landing her the high-paying modeling jobs, which are what

Finley needs if she is going to reopen her mother’s dance studio.

Enter Eddie. He’s intense and driven, not to mention

the life of every party, and he completely charms Finley. The last thing she

wants is another commitment to stand in the way of her dreams, but when she’s

with Eddie, their chemistry takes over and she can let go of her

responsibilities and just be. After all, what’s so wrong about putting herself

first once in a while?

Except Eddie is hiding a secret. A big secret. And

when it surfaces, he and Finley are going to have to choose between their love

for each other and everything else…
