By Kylie Scott
Genre – Mature YA
Release Date: July 18, 2017


Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

Review by: Tatia 

I don't read a lot of young adult books, but when Kylie Scott says she's releasing one, you read it. It's different than her normal books, but in the best way. It was a nice change of scenery. A high school aged girl who experiences a terrible tragedy and how it changes her afterwards. Not just her and the person she is, but the way she views the world and how she loves her life. Fate throws people into your life at the most insane times. You may not know it then, but those people can change your life as well.
Edie had everything she could need. She went to a great school, had the best friend a girl could ask for, and had an all around great life. Until one day changed everything. Her outlook on life changed. Her best friend showed her true colors. Then she finally stood up to the bully at school. Now she's enrolled at a different school. It's all great until she realizes that people involved in that day go to the same one. All she wants is to forget about it all. Kind of hard to do when they view all of them as a big deal.
John's life changed that day. When something like that happens, it opens your eyes to what's happening. What you could be causing. How you could be affecting someone's life. He didn't want that to be the mark he left. It's harder to change everyone's view of you than it is for you to actually change though.
Kylie Scott wrote this perfectly. It makes you stop and think. These two characters point of views changed and did a complete one eighty. John started trying while Edie started not caring as much. I liked how we got to see how both of their minds worked. How this one event changed them both in such different ways. That happens in life. One thing can change the way you view the world, how you view your surroundings and those around you. It couldn't have been written better by anyone else.

OMG!!! THIS BOOK!!! This story is an epic, emotional journey for these two characters. The storyline was phenomenal and kept me hooked from start to finish. These characters will definitely make you think. Their circumstances and background provide a lot of thinking material. The plot twists and turns will keep you guessing on the outcome.  A very different change of pace from her Stage Dive and Dive Bar series. I loved every word of this story and would encourage everyone to read it. It will definitely be worth your time!

Review by: Flavia 

When I started this book, I didn't really know what to expect. But it was a Kylie Scott book so obviously it will be good, and it didn't disappoint. 

Edie was out with her friend going for a midnight snack run and then they will be watching movies whole night. But her life completed shatters when she walks into the convenience store. There were 5 people in that store, and after what happens only 3 people walk out.

From there Edie's whole life changes, what use to terrify her (school and bullies) now she couldn't care less. She changes schools and ends up at the same school as the one person who saved her life that night at the store.

John is a dealer in weed but after what happens 'that' night he decides to change, that means going to school and actually making an effort with his grades. But not everyone thinks that he's changed.

This book is about John and Edie and how they deal with what happened to them that night. Two people that would never have been in each others lives, now they are the only people they can rely on. The only two people who understands how they feel and they only ones they feel safe with.

Awesome storyline and awesome characters, even the side characters were good. Their best friends Hang and Anders hilarious at times. 

I enjoyed this story, for me it was about seeing Edie deal with her life after her traumatic experience. And seeing how things that were important in her life now doesn't matter at all and there are other things that is more important. The things that you take for granted and the things that you would never have done before.

“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”
I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”
“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”
“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.
“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”
“Not funny.”
I shrugged.
“You barely know the guy.”
“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”
“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.
“No we are not.” And I retreated.
“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.
Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”
“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”
“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”
He said nothing.
Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”
He slowly shook his head.
“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”
“What? What the hell are you talking about?”
“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”
“This is crazy.”
“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”
He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”
“I’m just trying to be practical.”
“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”
“It does to me.”
Again, he said nothing.
In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.
“What?” I said, finally.
He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”
