Bridgette Martinez: Bri's had the worst luck with guys, and after getting her heart broken, by the one man who had liked her for so long but broke up with her abruptly, she's not sure if she really wants this "love". She constantly finds herself asking: Is he really worth it? She must love him, since she still finds herself constantly reminded of him. He's hours away in Santa Barbara, but when that distance is suddenly closed, when Bri's transfers. Everything suddenly becomes harder. She finally learns what true love feels like. She also realizes...maybe James wasn't so heartless...that he may have loved her all along too.

James Emerson: Bri has captured his heart since he first met her, way back when he was 12. He's in college now, hours away, but the reminder of the girl he left is constantly brought up, whenever he misses home. When he finally sees Bri again, he expected things to be perfect. But as he's come to learn with Bri, everything's always a little complicated. Now he's suddenly fighting for her heart again. Maybe, he does, maybe he always had loved Bri.

We learn, love is never perfect, it takes work. The "little family" is tested, changed, and in college. They never would have expected any of this when they were in middle school. But they do learn whether or not True Love really Prevails.
