Lexi''s angry. And it''s getting worse.

If only she could stop losing her temper and behave herself, her stepfather would accept her, her mom would love her like she used to, and her stepbrother would declare his crushing desire to spend the rest of his life with her. She wants these things so badly, she''s determined to swallow her anger and make her family proud.But pushing fury down doesn''t make it disappear. Instead, it simmers below the surface waiting to erupt . . . And there''ll be fireworks when it does.

From the bestselling and award-winning author of Before I Die, You Against Me, and Unbecoming comes a remarkably affecting story that explores the myriad of ways a girl''s sense of self can be whittled away, and what might happen when she fights back.
