Forced to return to his estranged family, John discovers how hard it is to truly go home.
It's been a year since John lost his girlfriend, Leah, to suicide. Living with his uncle keeps his mind from the tragedy and his screwed up family-until he gets into trouble and a judge sends him back home. With a neglectful mother and abusive brother, John's homecoming is far from happy.
As he tries to navigate and repair the relationships he abandoned years ago, Emily, the girl next door, is the only bright spot. She's sweet and smart and makes him think his heart may finally be healing. But tragedy isn't far away, and John must soon face an impossible decision: save his family or save himself.
Why I'm waiting...
Last week I featured a YA Romance and mentioned that I didn't like the cover because it didn't showcase the boy and girl on it. This is what I was talking about! I love this cover! Not only do I like the boy and girl on it, but I also like the lettering and the teal blue color of the bricks. Very eye catching. I am also in love with the plot line on this one. Who doesn't like a tragic boy coming home and trying to pick up the broken pieces with the help of a girl kind of book? Exactly!! I also like how they ended it with: save his family or save himself. That's a hard decision to make! I'm really looking forward to this one.
