Young Adult Contemporary
Date Published: March 31, 2015


Meet Lillie Gable-
high school sophomore, outgoing, beautiful, athletic, and funny...

She is the life of any party. Her boyfriend, Jake, is a smoking hot senior, and Lillie is on track to be a starter on the varsity girls' basketball team this year.

But trouble looms behind the fa├žade. Lillie's home life is a wreck. Her father is hiding a secret, and Lillie is determined to find the truth, even if it tears apart her family.

While she searches for the truth about her father, the last thing Lillie needs is a feud with Angela Barrett, the brass, bleached blonde senior who is the queen of the rumor mill. Angela is determined to ruin Lillie's reputation because she has set her sights on Lillie's boyfriend, Jake.

Heartbroken and humiliated, Lillie can't return to the life she once knew. Does she have the strength and resolve to forge a new path now that everything is changing? 



Review
Let's face it. Life is tough, especially for teenagers these days. You have school obligations, dealing with your peers, and of course the things that no one even knows you deal with. Lillie goes through a lot in this novel and I really felt for her as a character. I loved the way we really were able to see this story through her eyes. The story unfolded at a nice pace and I didn't feel like anything was forced or missing. Wonderful job by Kristen Otte.
