Summary
Samuel Cooke is a prickly computer genius who's just left his high-paying job to teach programing to high schoolers. He doesn't believe in asking for help; he doesn't think much of his fellow man; and he definitely doesn't believe in love. Greta Cassamajor is the tough, take-no-prisoners gym coach no kid dares to mock - at least within hearing. She's got her own issues with her fellow man. An unlikely hero, Samuel only asks Greta out to prove he's got the guts - and when she accepts, he's out of his depth. Pretending he's got his class under control is easy. Being vulnerable enough to admit why he ditched his programming career for teaching? Well...that would require honesty. And if there's one thing Samuel can't exist without, it's the lies he tells himself. Yet Greta has her own secrets. Can their relationship survive the risks they'd take in revealing their truths? Poignant, quirky, and heart-tugging, this is a tender, cheer-inducing debut novel about two people who discover that love can blossom in the most unexpected places
Summary
The relationship between former computer programmer Samuel Cooke and tough-as-nails gym coach Greta Cassamajor has a chance of succeeding, but only if the two of them can stop keeping the past secret and finally be honest with each other
