“It’s like there’s gravity between us, like she’s the only thing anchoring me to the world, keeping me from floating off into the upper stratosphere and being lost in space. I can’t risk losing her.”

Where does friendship stop and love begin?

At just 19, Kendall Bettencourt is Hollywood’s hottest young starlet, with the world at her feet – but behind the glamour and designer dresses is a girl who longs for normal.

Payton Taylor is Kendall’s best friend since childhood, and the one person who reminds her of who she really is – her refuge from the craziness of celebrity life.

With her career taking off, Kendall moves Payton to LA to help keep her sane. But Payton is hiding a secret that could make everything ten times worse. Because to her, Kendall is more than a best friend – she is the only girl that she has ever loved.

Just as they need each other more than ever, they’ll have to answer the question of where friendship stops and love begins? And find out whether the feelings they have can survive the mounting pressure of fame…

The Gravity Between Us is a daring, romantic, emotional story about friendship, love, and finding the courage to be yourself in a crazy world.

endall is sitting on my bed playing with my laptop. I’m hovering in front of my closet, looking for my favorite Montclair State University sweatshirt. “I hate your hair,” I call to her over my shoulder. “Sorry, I couldnt keep that in any longer.I did notice right away that the reddish-purple tint of her new hair color made her blue eyes pop. Nonetheless, I don’t like it. I mean, what natural blonde ever wants to go auburn? Women drop hundreds of dollars at hair salons trying to attain the golden perfection she was born with. It’s ludicrous.“It’s for my next role.” She laughs. “You could at least
 pretend
to like it.” “No, I can’t. And you shouldn’t either. Lawrence made you do it. I know you didn’t want to.”“Of course I didn’t want to. You should have been there when he came to me with the idea. He was all like, ‘You absolutely have

to do this. Dont worry, it’ll be great.’ God, he sounded just like my mother. It took everything I had not to punch him in the throat.” I chuckle at that.
ere’s a lot to be said about Kendall Betten-court. She’s one of those people who were put on this earth so that the average human can give the word ‘beauty’ a de
nition. Between having the body of a Victoria’s Secret model and a face that should be immortalized in a Da Vinci painting, she never stood a chance at living her life in the shadows. It didn’t really come as much of a surprise that this girl—whose genetic makeup is, by no fault of her own, startlingly akin to that of a Greek goddess—would become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after up-and-comers. But my fa-vorite thing about her is
not 
 her physical beauty or even the fact that she has genuine talent. It’s that she doesn’t take shit from anyone, including her legendary publicist, Lawrence Mackin.“How did the
Today Show 
 go yesterday?” I wonder. “I didn’t catch it.”“I didn’t even want to do it. I honestly felt like saying, ‘Well, Matt, I don’t think anyone should bother wasting their money on
In Heaven’s Arms 
. It’s a total gagfest.’” She sticks her
nger in her mouth and makes this half-retching, half-gurgling sound. “‘It’s all Ghost Girl meets Living Boy. Ghost Girl falls in love  with Living Boy, Ghost Girl tries to
gure out how she can be  with Living Boy without inhabiting a rotting corpse, which is sure to be a major turn-o
ff 
 to Living Boy. Blah Blah Blah.’”I take a seat next to her on the bed. “Funny. If it’s so horrible,  what the hell possessed you to star in it?”
