Football jock West Ashby looks like he has everything in this world; good looks, hot body, hot girlfriend, star footballer. But nobody sees the real him, the one who is broken because his idol, his dad is dying. Everything seems bleak and broken until he meets Maggie Carleton, the new girl in the campus who doesn’t speak and suddenly a splinter of light seeps into his dark world.
Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart two years back when she watched her father kill her mother. Since then she has been running away from her haunted past. The only thing that’s keeping her from falling apart is silence. Will West and a new city finally be the key to open her up?
I usually don’t hold out much hopes for teenage novels. But Abbi Glines surprised me. The book is a sweet story revolving around pain and tragedies and reflects beautifully on true love, friendship and loyalty.
There is nothing extraordinary about the story, but the characters in the book has been beautifully sketched out and devleoped consistently throughout the novel. The story explores personal tragedies and human behaviour beautifully through each of the character, providing them with an incentive to grow further with future plot lines in this new series.
My opinion: Definitely an interesting read to keep you occupied. The start of this series looks promising.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
