Why did I read this?  Because several authors that I like recommended the book.

Two young cross country bond at a running camp and then one transfers to the others high school.  They become best friends and competitors for a science scholarship.  One tells the other a secret that puts a kink into the relationship.  Many years later after they have graduated high school, college and become scientists they work together at a research facility.  Their relationship is strained due to the secret, however later things happen that forces them together.  They find another secret about their employee that stresses out the relationship.
