Alex Craft knows how to kill someone. And she doesn’t feel bad about it. When her older sister, Anna, was murdered three years ago and the killer walked free, Alex uncaged the language she knows best. The language of violence.

While her crime goes unpunished, Alex knows she can’t be trusted among other people, even in her small hometown. She relegates herself to the shadows, a girl who goes unseen in plain sight, unremarkable in the high school hallways.

But Jack Fisher sees her. He’s the guy all other guys want to be: the star athlete gunning for valedictorian with the prom queen on his arm. Guilt over the role he played the night Anna’s body was discovered hasn’t let him forget Alex over the years, and now her green eyes amid a constellation of freckles have his attention. He doesn’t want to only see Alex Craft; he wants to know her.

So does Peekay, the preacher’s kid, a girl whose identity is entangled with her dad’s job, though that does not stop her from knowing the taste of beer or missing the touch of her ex-boyfriend. When Peekay and Alex start working together at the animal shelter, a friendship forms and Alex’s protective nature extends to more than just the dogs and cats they care for.

Circumstances bring Alex, Jack, and Peekay together as their senior year unfolds. While partying one night, Alex’s darker nature breaks out, setting the teens on a collision course that will change their lives forever.

So I haven’t read Mindy McGinnis yet but I’ve heard a lot of lovely things and I’m definitely intrigued by this book! Also, I’m definitely a fan of the cover.

  1. Have this on my TBR 🙂 it’s also available for request on Edelweiss 🙂

  2. This is on my TBR as well. And I really recommend reading A Madness So Discreet, it was great. I hope we both love this. Thanks for sharing, and happy Wednesday! 🙂
    Here’s my WoW

  3. I got this on Edelweiss and I can’t wait to read it – the first wave of reviews are soooo good. apparently it’s super dark and gritty and I’m having to stop myself reading it so soon because I still have June books to review!

    Here’s my pick for the week 🙂
    Here is a link to my blogoversary giveaway as well!

  4. I loved Mindy’s previous books so I am so excited for this one too! Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choice! <3

  5. I haven’t read any of her books either! I keep thinking how good they sound and then never getting to them. I don’t read too much contemporary, but I like how dark this sounds (darker is always better!) and the reviews have been wonderful so far–so I’ll have to read it! Wonderful pick Cyn!

  6. This will probably be the first McGinnis I won’t be reading! I read her first three published books and gave all three books three stars each. So I don’t think I’ll attempt with this one. 😀 I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

  7. I’ve been seeing this around, can’t decide if I’ll read it myself, but I’ll definitely get it for my school library.
    Check out my WOW

  8. I have this on my kindle but am kind of scared to read it….
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics
