Just when Grace is beginning to get used to being an orphan, her estranged uncle suddenly comes forward to claim her.

That might have been okay if he'd spoken to her even once since her father died.

Or if moving in with Uncle Rusty didn't mean returning to New Harbor.

Grace once spent the best summers of her life in New Harbor. Now the place just reminds her of all she's lost: her best friend, her boyfriend and any memory of the night that changed her forever.

People say the truth will set you free, but Grace isn't sure about that. Once she starts looking for it, the truth about that night is hard to find --- and what happens when her healing hurts the people she cares about the most?

Marci Lyn Curtis, the critically acclaimed author of The One Thing, has crafted an honest and emotional story that will resonate with the wide range of readers impacted by sexual assault.

Sexual assault does not define this story, however, just as it does not define Grace. Wry humor and true love emerge as Grace, like many in the #MeToo era, seeks to find her truth, face her truth, and speak her truth.
Marci Lyn Curtis is a critically acclaimed author of young adult dramedies, including The One Thing. She lives near Tampa, Florida, with her husband.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mini review on Netgalley! Mini review: DNF Trigger warning: Mention of death and alcoholism. Up till the point I read. I received this E-ARC via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I was really looking forward to reading this! I’ve read the authors debut and loved it! Unfortunately it wasn’t for me. The writing style was alright in the beginning. As I read on it really started to irk me. To the point I couldn’t continue. Still recommend.

Editorial Reviews

Helmed by a protagonist who is savvy, lost, broken, sarcastic and ultimately strong enough to create love in a world too often poised to break a girl, The Leading Edge of Now will leave you with a deep need to live life to the fullest.-Shannon M. Parker, author of The Girl Who Fell and The Rattled Bones
