Topher Carlson is one of the biggest jocks on campus. All the guys want to be him, all the girls want to claim him. When secrets are uncovered, Topher’s life spins wildly out of control.
They are far from friends when the school year begins, but each will impact the other’s life in ways they never dreamed possible. Can Ciera help Topher realize that popularity and status mean nothing in the real world? Can Topher help Ciera learn the true meaning of living?

"Sometimes, you have to be fully broken
in order to piece yourself together again".
Ciera is a strong, lovable character, I loved how she rose above the bully's. But I felt so sorry for her.
I thought Topher (love the name) was an arrogant ass, who was out to destroy Ciera. But once you see a deeper side to him, the real Topher everything changes, you can't help but to love him.
Learning to live is well written, the storyline is easy to follow, but you will need a box of tissues.
