by Ellen Hopkins

Margaret K. McElderry Books | September 11, 2012 | Hardcover

Tilt is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Love—good and bad—forces three teens’ worlds to tilt in a riveting novel from New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins.

Three teens, three stories—all interconnected through their parents’ family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the lives of the teens begin to tilt….
Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year—and decides to keep the baby?
Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister’s impending death. Can he accept Alex’s love, knowing that his life, too, will be shortened?
Harley is fourteen—a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be.
Love, in all its forms, has crucial consequences in this standalone novel.

Mikayla

My World Tilted


Completely off its axis the night

I hooked up with Dylan Douglas.

It was New Year’s Eve—five

months ago—so maybe part of that

earth-sway had something to do with

the downers, weed and cheap beer,

a dizzying combo on an empty stomach.

What I know for sure is, when he came

slinking up like a cougar—all tawny

and temperamental—something inside

me shifted. Something elemental.

I, probably the oldest prude in my whole

junior class, transformed into vamp.

When he smiled at me—me!—I knew

I had to make him mine. I would

have done anything. Turned out, all

I had to do was smile back. Just like

that, we belonged to each other.
