Reggie has a secret she is desperate to keep. Because there is no way she wants to become “that girl” in school all over again. And that should be fairly easy, considering her recent move to a new town where nobody knows or cares why she is living with her brother and not her parents.
So why does Reggie feel drawn to Sam, who looks at her with knowing eyes? Why is it so easy to spill everything to him: the death of her parents, the blame she places on herself, and her broken hopelessness for the future? Maybe it’s because Sam has a secret of his own.
As Reggie learns from Sam, when life is falling apart, sometimes the only hope you have left is the kind you can find in yourself. And sometimes it takes forgiving yourself to even begin to see it.
When Amy Spade isn’t writing, she’s doing her second favorite thing: teaching teenagers the meaning of life (Okay, maybe just substitute teaching at the local high school). She loves the Pennsylvania mountains, the Carolina beaches, and chocolate cake. She also loves her four cats Coal, Shadow, Jinx, and Shiloh. She doesn’t love being called a cat lady (though she might qualify as one). Amy lives with her husband – and all those cats – smack dab in the middle of Pennsylvania. Amy Spade enjoys writing both Young Adult and Adult Literary Fiction.
