While she packs her suitcase in the student residence, she looks in the mirror, observes her eyes swollen from crying, without any pureness she sees how her friend Naya desperately comes in to see her, tells her that she is really making a mistake and not to leave. Jennifer does not agree and notices that her sister is waiting for her in the car outside the residence, but Ross arrives at that moment, he begs her not to leave him, not to leave and break his heart, but she, although she suffered from seeing him destroyed He leaves and leaves him with a broken heart, although she was also devastated, she decided to let him achieve his dream of being a great film director even though it hurt so much to let him go.

Antes de diciembre! Es un titulo que para mi parecer se escucha muy tierno y la verdad no me decepcionó, en este libro veras cosas realistas del dia a dia y de como es la vida de una joven que decide estudiar lejos de casa, Jennifer la protagonista de nuestra historia es una chica joven que a penas esta floreciendo y comienza la universidad, esta tiene un novio al cual deja en su ciudad asi como sus amistades y familia, aunque solo se ira por tres meses su novio (Monty) le hace la propuesta de tener una relación abierta Jennifer al principio no acepta esto pero ante la insistencia esta accede.

Al llegar a su residencia Jenifer deja su equipaje y conoce a Naya, la chicha que de ahora en adelante sera su mejor amiga, la vida universitaria da inicio y vemos como Jenifer se desenvuelve, tomando sus clases, haciendo sus examenes y lo mas importante conociendo personas nuevas.

Vemos como Naya le presenta a su novio y su grupo de amigos en el cual esta Ross, el chico que se encargara de darle la vuelta al mundo de Jennifer, ya que esta es una chica insegura la cual carga con los errores de los demas como si fueran suyos, tiene actitudes autodestructivas dejando que las personas le hagan daño mientras piensa que es culpable de ello.

Ross queda flechado de Jennifer desde el primer momento y este a pesar de tener un pasado muy turbio decide darle la mejor versión de el, mientras esta se siente agobiada por el hecho de que su novio es un maltratador, que le hace daño y destruye sus cosas para despues disculparse, hacerle creer a ella que fue por su culpa mientras le mete la idea de que es por su bien.

Vemos como durante estos meses lejos de casa Jennifer comienza a ver diferentes horizontes y su perspectiva del mundo comienza a cambiar, esta pasa por una crisis momentánea ya que sus padres no tienen el dinero suficiente para cubrir los gastos de su residencia y ante esta situación su Ross sin ningun duda le propone que se venga a vivir a su departamento, sin ningun tipo de doble de interes, con mucha pena Jennifer acepta ya que su nuevo grupo de amigos vive en el departamento de Ross y se hace ameno el ambiente.

El tiempo pasa y Jennifer se enfrenta a los celos constantes de su novio, el mismo que le ofrecio tener una relación abierta y se habia acostado con otras chicas, incluso tenía un historial no muy bueno ya que la habia engañado con su antigua mejor amiga, ese mismo patan ahora no deja de molestarla y celarla de la peor manera al saber que ella vivia con Ross y que habian tenido algo.

Jennifer ya va a la mitad del curso y esta agotada ya que cada dia las clases son mas exigentes, y al salir no podia creer lo que veia, su novio (si el psicópata) la toma del brazo por la fuerza para llevarsela de vuelta a la ciudad, mientras esta forcejea porque no quiere irse, quiere terminar su curso, le gusta su vida universitaria y quiere seguir alli, pero este la lleva por la fuerza a la residencia de estudiantes para que ella recoja sus cosas.

Al entrar a la residencia este ve que la mayoría de las cosas de Jennifer no esta y claramente no esta viviendo ahí, Monty tiene un ataque de celos y se pone agresivo destruye toda la ropa que le quedaba en la residencia destruyendo tambien tus fotos, este le lanzo una fotografía que estaba en un cuadro en la cara a Jennifer y esta por suerte la esquiva, el toma los lentes de Jennifer, los cuales eran de un alto valor para esta ya que eran costoso y sus padres se los obsequiaron con mucho amor y esfuerzo, esta se desmorona al ver que el los destruia.

Despues de esta pelea Ross llega a la residencia ya que el receptor le avisa de lo sucedido y ayuda a Jennifer a recoger todo mientras le brinda su apoyo, esta le cuenta que por fin habian terminado y que ya no tendria que volver a tolerar algo asi, Ross se alegra de que esta por fin sea libre y no tenga que tolerar a un sujeto que le haga tanto daño.

El tiempo siguio pasando y Jennifer se da cuenta de que Ross le produce sentimiento que su ahora exnovio jamas logro hacer que esta sintiera, asi que comienzan a salir de manera mas formal, mientras disfrutan de la vida esta conoce a la famila de Rossy y no tiene una buena relación con el padre de este, pero descubre que Ross y su hermano no se llevan bien con su padre, ella no entiende el porque pero no puede descubrirlo.

Jennifer tiene que ir a su ciudad porque su madre cumple años, pero en medio de la celebración y sus pequeñas vacaciones su exnovio va a buscarla diciendo que la ama y que tienen que seguir juntos, ella reacciona y indignada le dice que no, que no lo quiere y que Ross si le hace sentir cosas que el no pudo, ante esto el la golpea y ella cae al suelo, el desaparece y ella no dice nada.

Al dia siguiente su padre conversa con ella sobre el golpe y sabe que el la ha maltratado en varias ocasiones y le pide que deje de tolerarlo, ella se queda pensando en esto mientras va en el avion, al llegar a casa de Ross todo fluye normal hasta que este descubre su golpe y tienen una discusión, ella defiende a su exnovio diciendo que no es malo, mientras Ross le dice que si no lo es porque la golpeo, al final ella empieza a aceptar que de verdad no es una buena persona y empieza a valorarse a si misma.

Ya a final del curso ella y Ross son novios y estan muy felices pero como todo momento de calma tiene que ser arruinado, aparece Monty a llevarse a Jennifer, pero esta forcejea, Ross llega el momento exacto y le da una paliza ( créanme leer esa escena me dio mucha satisfacción) al final del dia ella le agradece, la famila de Jennifer ama a Ross y le piden que lo lleve a casa, esta lo hace para fecha de navidad.

Jennifer le pide al papa de Ross que se disculpe con el y asi el accederá a tener una reunión entre ambas familias, y este accede, la relación de Ross y su padre mejora y llega la fecha de la cena navideña, ambas familias comparten, pero Jennifer no deja de pensar en la carga de aceptación de Ross, y es que este habia sido seleccionado para estudiar en el extranjero y convertirse en un gran director de cine y este rechazaría la oferta por quedarse junto ella.

El padre Ross interrumpe a Jennifer para conversar con ella y la convence para que no se interponga entre Ross y su oportunidad de convertirse en alguien exitoso, al volver al departamento de Ross esta comparte con el algunos dias sin dejar de pensar en lo de su carta de aceptación, y toma la decisión.

Mientras ella hace su maleta en la residencia para estudiantes, se ve al espejo, observa sus ojos inchados de tanto llorar, sin ningun puror ve como su amiga naya entra desesperada a verla, le dice que en realidad se esta equivocando y que no se vaya, Jennifer no accede y nota que su hermana la espera en el carro fuera de la residencia, pero Ross llega en ese momento, le ruega que no lo deje, que no se vaya y le parta el corazon, pero ella aunque sufria por verlo destrozado se marcha se va y le deja con el corazon roto, aunque ella tambien estaba destrozado, decidió dejar que el lograra su sueño de ser un gran director de cine aunque le doliera tanto dejarlo ir.
