Cast for Life is a Highway

So, yeah, I've got a new WIP. Yes, I know I'm supposed to be finishing The War Within. Poor thing. I started in after Don't Hate the Player, then abandoned it to write Nets and Lies, and then just when I'm finally showing it somemore love, BAM...another runaway SNI hits me while watching Last Holiday(gah, I adore Queen Latifah!). Like I said, I was watching the movie, and I thought there should be a kinda Bucket List/Last Holiday for YA and HUZZAH...the tentatively titled, Life is a Highway, came to me. And I'm LOVING IT! I totally see myself finishing it in November and December...

Well, whoopity do, but what's it about? There's five friends from childhood who even through puberty have hung together and kept their friendship alive. One of the friends, Liam, has always had a bad heart, and he needs a transplant to survive. After graduation, he requests that his three best friends and brother accompany him to his UncleJack's ranch in Montana. It resembles something out of Legends of the Fall and The Horse Whisperer. Since Liam can't fly due to his heart condition, they set out in Chloe's grandparents RV. Along the way, Maddie and Aidan will fight their growing feelings for each other.
So, without further adieu, here is the cast!!!

HAHA, Uncle Jack is Aidan Quinn. I have loved him since Legends of the Fall, and I thought it was fitting that I had a character named Aidan, and the story is taking place in Montana, like LotF.

Yes, you guys can beta, I promise!
