From Goodreads:
When Jordyn Michaelson’s autistic brother joins her at her elite school, she’s determined not to let anyone know they're related. Even if that means closing herself off to all her closest friends, including charming football stud Alex Colby. But despite her best intentions, she just can't shake the memory of kissing Alex last summer, and the desire to do it again. Can Jordyn find the courage to tell Alex how she really feels—and the truth about her family—before he slips away forever?

This is one of those feel good books that leaves you with a goofy smile on your face.  

It's about a boy who can't express himself, can't use his speech, and a girl who chooses not to.

It's about a girl who has always tried to blend in, who never wants to be seen, but because she always holds herself back, she's also lonely and has let herself miss out on true friendships and love.

It's about a girl finally being brave.

It sends a powerful message about what's important, who's important.

And Alex…what a genuinely good guy.  The romance is light but it's perfect.

  3. Sounds like my type of read! I love fluffy romance novels with a deeper meaning buried under all the fluff. Definitely adding this to my TBR!
