Maya Anderson has faced more than her share of tragedy and heartbreak. For the past six years she’s constantly been on the move with her mom. When another disaster strikes, she finds herself back in her childhood hometown of Beaumont, living with her older sister for her senior year.
A chance meeting reacquaints her with Ben McCaffey, a long-forgotten classmate from her past. After the death of his girlfriend, Ben has become a social outcast. He’s despised by some and feared by most.
Determined to become Ben’s friend, Maya begins to break through his layers of emotional protection. It isn’t long before they realize that they both have secrets in their pasts. As the line between dealing with grief and struggling with a desire for revenge begins to fade, the secrets that draw them together may be what will ultimately tear them apart. Because the closer Maya gets to Ben, the more dangerous her situation becomes.
My wonderful friend on Twitter@JennNun recommended this book to me. I am so glad that she did!
Best Part: The whole book was amazing! I could not put it down. Maya and Ben are amazing characters and my heart really ached for them and their stories. I cannot tell you how much I wanted to actually "protect" Ben and Maya throughout the book. From the moment I started reading until the moment I finished the book I cried, laughed (at times) and wanted Ben and Maya to be together forever.
Not so great about Book: I can honestly say this book was great. There is nothing wrong with this book at all! I could reread a 100 times and never tire of it!
