Is it possible to be 'just friends' with a girl?
Absolutely. Best friends. You can even be ballroom partners.
As long as you don't do anything stupid.
FYI: Waking up one day and realizing too late that you're in love with your ballroom girl counts as doing something stupid. Especially if she's head-over-heels swooning for somebody else. Then the best option is to walk away and forget it ever happened. Because nothing did, and nothing will.
But what if she needed you to stand by her?
Really needed you, as her closest friend?
What kind of love would that take?
THE LAST LESSON is about a boy who keeps secrets, a girl with high walls, and the truth about things that matter. A gently bittersweet coming-of-age story about first love.
