The last person Riya Johnson expected to run into at her new summer camp is Courtney Chastain—her childhood best friend and the girl who broke her heart after a secret, mind-blowing, life-altering kiss. She definitely didn’t expect to be sharing a bunk bed with her for four long weeks.
Courtney has what every girl wants—she’s beautiful, rich, and the object of every boy’s desire at Camp Pine Ridge. Too bad none of them make her feel an iota of what Riya’s kiss did all those years ago. But Courtney needs to uphold appearances at all costs—even if it means instigating an all-out prank war with Riya as her main target.
Neither girl can stop thinking about the other…but that doesn’t mean they can give up past hurts and take a chance on a future together.

5 stars: "The romance was phenomenal! That lake scene left me feeling all tingly. And, of course, that final performance... awww, couple-goals! I really, really enjoyed reading this book and, honestly, this is the first F/F book that I loved."" -Norah Una Sumner, Bookish Fever
5 stars: "I felt that this book just worked. There is no other way to describe it, there was angst but it made sense with the ages of the characters and I didn't feel that it made them seem immature because they are 16 and 17 so any more maturity would have been unbelievable. I enjoyed this authors writing and sat up all night reading until I had finished."" -CJ13, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "This book deserves all the praise and then some, one of my favorite reads of this year, and maybe even my life. So many parts inspired me, moved me and just made me want more."" -Olivia Channel, OliviaChannel.com
5 stars: "Keeping Her Secret is one of those magical books that keeps you turning pages long after you should have gone to bed. I recommend the book completely, and if I were a teacher I would place it on my required summer reading list."" -Bonajean McAneney, Goodreads Reviewer

The book was moving and honest at all times, and kept a reasonable pace, making me want to continue reading the novel. Which is exactly what I did." -Cody Benson, Childishly Passionate
"Highly recommend for those looking for a swoony F/F YA romance." -Shelly, Read Sleep Repeat
"It does take a bit of a fairy-tale turn by the end of it, but you know what? That's okay because I think we all need a bit of fairy tale in our lives. This is a quick and fun read that I do indeed recommend." -By Hook or By Book
"A cute f/f relationships that has a happy ending. . Highly recommend. This one should definitely be on your TBR." -Megan, YA Bookers"
“Two girls. One Kiss."
Couldn't put this book down. Seriously.
I've read many LGBTQIA+ reads over the years, including several with a F/F romance. However, this is one of the only - if not THE only - book I've ever read in which one of the main characters is bisexual. I loved the way in which Riya described what it mea... ...more

This story is simple.
But not in a bad way. It's just lighthearted and very innocent.
