Shelby Demidovich, who is originally from a small town in Maidsville, West Virginia, has completed her new book “When Liking Turns to Loving”: a captivating love story that blossoms between two lifelong friends. They spent their childhoods playing and making memories together, but things became more difficult when they grew into teenagers.

Demidovich writes, “It all started when we turned thirteen. I just wanted to be with Sam, but Sam had so many friends. Every time I would call to see if he wanted to go riding with me or fishing, he was too busy. It made me cry! I missed our friendship. I thought he would always be there for me, but he started looking at all the other girls in school. One of the girls in our school was very pretty, and I thought Sam kind of liked her. I would sit in class and look at Sam. I was so hurt. Why couldn’t it be like when we were six? I know if he would’ve called, I would have jumped for joy! I hoped maybe one day when I grew up, I would be pretty too and Sam would have looked at me the same way.”

Published by Page Publishing, Shelby Demidovich’s mesmerizing tale follows Sam and Jeanie as they fall in love, break up, and after six years of broken hearts, find their way back to each other again.
