Rebecca loves his company, as he treats her like a person, unlike other boys, who are interested only in her family and money. Quotes from Double Cross. Next post Favourite Book Authors. When I got this book and read in the bit of info about the book in the dust cover and I read ‘Callie Rose and her boyfriend Tobey’ I almost screamed.
