First of all, I picked a book with the title Sweethearts hoping I would get a sweet, calm, love story. OK, this is sweet but also sad! Cameron & Jennifer are best friends all throughout their childhood until one day Cameron leaves. Jennifer decides to totally transform herself and start over. Then Cameron comes back. Jennifer questions all her motives and decisions over the past couple of years. This book is all about friendship, love, sadness, and triumph and not necessarily in that order! 
In this story Cameron comes into Jennifer's life as her best friend, the one person who will always stay with her so when he comes back and she is living a totally different life...she faces many challenges. This was an interesting book but now I am going to have to read something happy and cheerful.
