From Allison van Diepen, author of Light of Day, Snitch, and Street Pharm, comes a sexy, dangerous novel—perfect for fans of Simone Elkeles and Paul Griffin—about a teen who witnesses a murder and gets caught up in the seedy world of Miami's gangs.

Maddie Diaz never should have taken that shortcut through the park. If she hadn't, she wouldn't have seen two members of the Reyes gang attacking a homeless man. Now, as the only witness, she knows there's a target on her back.

But when the Reyes jump her on the street, Maddie is protected by a second gang and their secretive leader, Lobo, who is determined to take down the Reyes himself. Lobo is mysterious and passionate, and Maddie begins to fall for him. But when they live this close to the edge, can their love survive?

Allison van Diepen is the author ofStreet Pharm,Snitch,Takedown, and other novels for teens. Her books have been named ala Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Readers and NYPL Books for the Teen Age. She lives with her family in Ottawa, Canada, where she also teaches high school.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my thing Ehhhhhhhhhhhh. Maybe I'm too straight-laced suburban, but I just couldn't connect with anything here. Not the romance, that moved like lightening and might have been entirely hormones, or the street violence, or the casual drinking and shallow friendships. There were moments of good stuff that kept it from one star, but all in all I wasn't too impressed. Also, it was quite short.

Editorial Reviews

“The Miami underbelly–set thriller sub–plot steals the show.”
