The Year We Fell Down (The Ivy Years, #1) by Sarina BowenAlternate cover for this ASIN can be found here
The sport she loves is out of reach. The boy she loves has someone else. What now?
She expected to start Harkness College as a varsity ice hockey player. But a serious accident means that Corey Callahan will start school in a wheelchair instead.
Across the hall, in the other handicapped-accessible dorm room, lives the too-delicious-to-be real Adam Hartley, another would-be hockey star with his leg broken in two places. Hes way out of Coreys league.
Also, hes taken.
Nevertheless, an unlikely alliance blooms between Corey and Hartley in the gimp ghetto of McHerrin Hall. Over tequila, perilously balanced dining hall trays, and video games, the two cope with disappointments that nobody else understands.
Theyre just friends, of course, until one night when things fall apart. Or fall together. All Corey knows is that shes falling. Hard.
But will Hartley set aside his trophy girl to love someone as broken as Corey? If he wont, she will need to find the courage to make a life for herself at Harkness -- one which does not revolve around the sport she can no longer play, or the brown-eyed boy whos afraid to love her back.

During the first four weeks of the trial, prosecution witnesses testified that one or both of the brothers used proceeds of the estate to buy Rolex watches, cars and a restaurant, and sought to buy a luxury condominium.
L yle and Erik Menendez were two of the most infamous individuals to be accused of patricide and matricide. However, an interesting question is what happened to the Menendez family fortune and just how much are Lyle and Eric Menendez worth today? The boys were actually born in the Northeast. The brothers received only average grades in school but did excel in tennis, earning them admission to top tier colleges. For instance, Lyle attended Princeton University.

Lyle, 49, is currently serving a life sentence at Mule Creek State Prison in California , where he spoke to Megyn on the phone about why he and his brother Erik killed their parents almost 30 years ago, and the fact that the siblings have been unable to speak to one another for 17 years.
