Charlotte | 2 comments The title was one word and I think it started Beliz-.
It was quite a small book (about 2cm thick i think).
I read the book between 2012-16 and I'm pretty sure it was newly published.
The book was set in America and the girl was in high school.

At the school she gets given a diary and she dreams about her "boyfriend" and when she wakes a page of the diary is written in. However there is only a limited amount of pages in the diary.

You find out that he was never her "boyfriend" but was a British? exchange student that she was obsessed with and he didn't actually die. He was an athlete of some kind.

I appreciate any help as this is driving me mad.

Glad you found your book, Charlotte.

I removed the quotes around "boyfriend" and "died" in the topic header only. It sounds like these are spoilers. Spoilers are fine but we keep them out of the header. You explain the plot well in your comment.
