Liz | 10 comments Hi, all!

I'm trying to find a young adult romance I read about a girl that is treated as the town pariah for "cheating" on her military boyfriend shortly before he's killed in action.

I think the book takes place right after high school and flashes back to their senior year, when the "cheating" occurred. The boyfriend reveals to the MC that he is secretly gay and asks her to continue to pretend to date him until he's ready to come out. They have a fight at some point and briefly break up, during which time the MC loses her virginity to a mutual friend who has feelings for her. For some reason, she feels obligated to go back to the gay boyfriend the next day, so the mutual friend is understandably angry/hurt. They graduate, the boyfriend joins the military, and then is killed in action. The town (oblivious to the back story) thinks the MC is a rotten cheater.

Any ideas?
