For eighteen-year-old Becca Torrence, the chance to finish high school in a new town, where no one knows her or the secrets of that night, should be a dream come true. But when the first day of school rolls around, something is wrong.
Instead of being greeted with warm smiles and reassuring hellos, Becca finds herself on the receiving end of icy stares and cruel whispers. Putting it down to her status as an outsider, she holds her head high, because they can’t know.
Determined to make her new life in Credence work, Becca is willing to do whatever it takes to fit in. Even if it means losing herself in the process.
A white lie can save you… too many lies will break you.

This book takes on the hotter aspect of high school so if you don’t like fluffy sex details in your YA stories, this is me giving you the warning.
Becca and her family move for reasons not yet revealed, but you know it’s bad because the parents are on eggshells and Becca doesn’t feel like the nice popular girl in school anymore. She’s changed, and we have something- or a certain someone -to thank for that. If you’ve ever been the new kid in high school, know that Credence is every teen’s nightmare. Instead of getting to blend in, Becca gets targeted by the Queen Bee.
A little dramatic and cliche, right? I thought so, too, until things started to pick up, and then it became this elaborate thing that I couldn’t help but love. When it comes to high school, Cotton knows how to make it all look like ‘Hey, there’s actually a really good reason all this is happening to you. It’s not teen angst.’ Which is a fucking blessing because God knows there can be a lot of unnecessary high school drama.
Evan was pretty hard to figure out, because the dude was more bipolar than Vegas weather in the fall. It wasn’t until maybe halfway through the book that he finally ‘chose’ what he wanted, but then it was like the hose got turned on because soon after it was nothing but that. A little surprising at first, but pretty hot.
I’m still mad at him for trying to be all secretive though, the jerk.
I can’t tell you anything else but I will say that this is the best part about this book: every single fucking thing that gets done is because of something else. So get analytical, you! There’s drinking, drugs (not done by Becca…. unless you count a cigarette try), nights out in creepy abandoned places, moments with said Hottie, and pretty much every other reason that’d get your kid chipped lol. I liked the pace, the writing style flowed nicely, and the characters were pretty entertaining. I seriously need that second book, now.
Definitely a book to read.
