Publisher Description

A girl grappling with Panic Disorder finds comfort—and love—with a boy who is hiding a terrible secret in this poignant and romantic novel from Printz Honor medal winner and National Book Award finalist Deb Caletti.

Jade DeLuna is too young to die. She knows this, and yet she can’t quite believe it, especially when the terrifying thoughts, loss of breath, and dizzy feelings come. Since being diagnosed with Panic Disorder, she’s trying her best to stay calm, and visiting the elephants at the nearby zoo seems to help. That’s why Jade keeps the live zoo webcam on in her room, and that’s where she first sees the boy in the red jacket. A boy who stops to watch the elephants. A boy carrying a baby.

His name is Sebastian, and he is raising his son alone. Jade is drawn into Sebastian’s cozy life with his son and his activist grandmother on their Seattle houseboat, and before she knows it, she’s in love.

Jade knows the situation is beyond complicated, but she hasn’t felt this safe in a long time. And she owes it to Sebastian, her boy with the great heart. Her boy who is hiding a terrible secret. A secret that will force Jade to decide between what is right, and what feels right…

Couldn't put it down!

I normally read really fast, but this amazing novel relates to me so much, I had to slow down and enjoy every second! Plus, I hate saying goodbye! This book inspired me to volunteer at the local animal shelter and adopt an elephant at WWF.org! Amazing and inspiring! Love it!

you did it again, Caletti!

From the start of this book to the end, I haven't been able to put the book down! i've been looking for a teenage love story for a very long time and this one really hit the spot! I think everyone should give this book a try. :)
