RT Rating

Complex, emotional and gripping. The internal and external conflicts McGarry’s characters face will keep you enthralled, and the growth they experience throughout the novel takes real talent — I can’t wait for McGarry’s next book.

Echo doesn’t remember how she got the scars on her arms. All she knows is that she’s now a social pariah. She keeps her arms covered as rumors fly about what really happened. Tough guy Noah’s attitude has earned him a bad rep at school, but he doesn’t care. His only concern is getting custody of his two younger brothers once he turns 18. With a little luck, a lot of love and the help of a social worker who refuses to give up on them, Noah and Echo just might make it through their senior year. (HARLEQUIN TEEN, Aug., 416 pp., $17.99, HC, ISBN: 9780373210497, 14 & Up)
