This book has a lot to say about the pressures we feel growing up. Erica does an amazing job conveying the hardships and ups & downs that Brooklyn and Hunter face as teenagers. It shows the real effects of bullying and it explores the endless layers of what it is to be an adolescent trying to find your place in the world. Brooklyn really grabbed at my heart strings. Her innocence. Her vulnerability. She fell for the boy who was up on a pedestal but man, was he ready to fall for her. He is coming into his own and trying to find his voice in the sea of craziness that is high school and it was heartbreaking to watch. I was rooting for them and as the pages turned, I found myself totally enthralled with the undiluted plot of this story.

It was an easy plan.
But when is anything ever easy?
Hunter Evans, the star of the football team, comes to her for tutoring. He’s always saw her, but never approached her.
Why would he? He’s the most popular guy in school and best friends with Kara Adams, Brooklyn’s tormenter.
Despite what his friends thought, he saw her for who she really was.
He helps her find herself again. He helps her heal.
But one thing’s for sure.

Or how much they needed each other.
