Book Description

Devin Fischer lost both of his parents when he was nine.
His controversial mother was taken from him in a freak accident. His father made him an emotional orphan that same day. Devin's goal is to leave small-town Southern Idaho and the legacy of his mother's sensational death behind. The only obstacles in his path are the last two years of high school, and the many enemies he's made with his quick fists and quicker temper.

Melinda Liddy dreams of the day she can escape from the nightmare her life has become.
Her life is a bitter tug-of-war between the need to escape from her drunken, abusive father, and her inability to leave her mother behind to face the monster's explosive, unpredictable violence alone. As Melinda struggles to hold on long enough for an academic path, instead of becoming a runaway like her older sister Theresa, she finds a kindred spirit in Devin.

Together, they attempt to navigate the minefield of broken families, high school society, and the chaotic, sometimes confusing emotions that come with falling in love for the first time.

Another believable story with well fleshed out characters. Am hoping there will be a sequel or book 3. I do hope for a better or more complete ending in the next book. The ending in this one sure left me looking for more by this author.
