"Heartbreakingly real…a remarkable novel about the power of first love and the courage it takes to face your fears." —Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a riveting story about friendship, survival and finding your voice.
Growing up, Mallory Dodge learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at a public high school. But she never imagined she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet soon it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants and the truths that need to be heard.

Moving and informative
Tells a story from the perspective of a character who deals with heavy issues that are not always given the attention they deserve. Shows the audience that there are real problems in the foster care system and kids can be scarred from those experiences for life. It’s a very moving story that is unique and has a fresh take on how to find love even when you’re not 100% whole or perfect and you’re still healing yourself one day at a time.
Honestly one of the best books I've read, a great story with characters with such loveable personalities. I suggest you guys read this book if you have a project in English or just wanna read a good book at home. I'm sure you won't be able to put it down not even for a second, it'll make you want to read it more than just once.
