Katelyn has the normal everyday life of a seventeen year old teenager. At least, that's what she wants everyone to think. What she doesn't want anyone to know is how she protects her nine year old brother, Kevin, from the beatings her mother doles out to her or the string of "step dads" that flow through their lives. When they land in an extremely small town Katelyn meets Max. There she learns that it's harder to keep some of those secrets when people know everything about you from the moment you pull into town. Max doesn't care that Katelyn is poor. He just knows that he wants Katelyn and he wants her and Kevin to be safe.
I picked this book up and couldn't put it down. I was so drawn in that it was literally impossible. Katelyn was so strong, brave, and courageous. She was so well written it was as if she was someone who could walk right off the pages (or out of my Kindle). This was a wonderful YA book that shows what it's like to live in a small community where the town is willing to pull together to help each other.
