When Carolina and Trevor meet on their first day of school, something draws them to each other. They gradually share first kisses, first touches, first sexual experiences. When they’re together, nothing else matters. But one of them will make a choice, and the other a mistake, that will break what they thought was unbreakable. Both will wish that they could fall in love again for the first time . . . but first love, by definition, can’t happen twice.
Told in Carolina and Trevor’s alternating voices, this is an up-close-and-personal story of two teenagers falling in love for the first time, and discovering it might not last forever.

Yes, I do think first love can last forever. I started dating my first and only love when I was 15, and we are still together- 8 and a half years later. I can’t imagine my life without him <3
Susan Finan says
Absolutely! True love can come at ANY time!
Oh yes I do!!!<3
I think it can and probably does more often than people admit. We all have fond memories of a first love.
Linda Kish says
I believe it can but it will still have ups and downs like everyone else has.
Maria D. says
I think we can look back on our first love fondly and that we will probably always carry a nostalgic feeling of love but I think that as we age and mature it changes into more of a remembered love than an actual still living and breathing love…if that makes any kind of sense…thanks for the giveaway!
Vicki Wurgler says
yes I do
Yes, first love is a beautiful long lasting love.
Tammy V. says
In certain cases. There’s a lot of changes that happens over the years.
Jessica Samuelsen says
I think it depends situation by situation. I don’t think there is one encompassing answer. I think it is possible, but I think that it’s more likely that you grow out of it, if it wasn’t meant to be.
Nancy Luebke says
Yes It can but you need to work at it.
Anita Yancey says
Yes, I think that first love can last forever, if both people want it badly enough.
bill norris says
sure and if not the person, the memory of the person will stay with you forever
Sandra Watts says
It is wishful thinking but I guess anything is possible.
Nicole K says
Yes I do, I have seen it and it’s so beautiful.
I do. I’ve been with my 1st love for 15 years.
Blythe J says
It could last with a lot of work and a bit of luck as with any relationship.
Daniel M says
Diane Elizabeth says
I think if both people work at it, first love can last forever.
Yes, I do.
Mary Loki says
If it does I would think it would be very very rare.
I’m not sure… but mine has so far. He’s getting married to another girl in exactly a month though keeps telling me he wishes it was me D:
It’s definitely the most complicated love you’ll have.
