about

Ever since Jackie moved to her uncle's sleepy farming town, she's been flirting way too much--and with her own cousin, Marcus.

Her friendship with him has turned into something she can't control, and he's the reason Jackie lost track of her best friend, Ellie, who left for...no one knows where. Now Ellie has been missing for months, and the police, fearing the worst, are searching for her body. Swamped with guilt and the knowledge that acting on her love for Marcus would tear their families apart, Jackie pushes her cousin away. The plan is to fall out of love, and, just as she hoped he would, Marcus falls for the new girl in town. But something isn't right about this stranger, and Jackie's suspicions about the new girl's secrets only drive the wedge deeper between Jackie and Marcus--and deepens Jackie's despair.

Then Marcus is forced to pay the price for someone else's lies as the mystery around Ellie's disappearance starts to become horribly clear. Jackie has to face terrible choices. Can she leave her first love behind, and can she go on living with the fact that she failed her best friend?

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Romance/Mystery YA Novel If you like YA romance, mystery, and familial conflict, this is definitely a book for you. The story has some good twists and turns, and the characters feel very real and believable. I thought I might be thrown off by their being cousins, but I was surprised to find myself rooting for them from the first. Their neglectful parents, and overflowing household, set a strange set, as the protagonists are forced to spend a great deal of time together, but apart. Most charming of all for me, however, is Kate Brauning's manner of writing prose. Witty and humorous, Kate Braining is a delight to read. I'll be picking up her next book, whatever it happens to be.
