Family, abandonment, and forbidden romance are at the core of SM Koz’s powerful and emotionally charged novel about a teen who falls for her foster brother.
When Hailey Brown is removed from her home and put into foster care, all she wants is a safe, comfortable place where she can finish school and move on with her life. It’s not easy adjusting to a new school and a new life, but Mr. and Mrs. Campbell and their teenage son, Brad, welcome Hailey with open arms.
As Hailey begins to adjust to her new life, she and Brad grow closer. For the first time, Hailey feels like she might have a real shot at a future. Soon, however, Hailey realizes her relationship with Brad has crossed the line from friendship into something more. But being with Brad would mean giving up the perfect life that Hailey has waited so long to have.
Can Hailey and Brad resist the feelings that are developing between them—or will they risk it all to be together?
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, SM Koz delivers a powerful debut about the ups and downs of being a foster child.

You know when a book grabs you from that very first line, you know that this is going to be a great read! You instantly fall into Hailey's corner as she deals with a loser boyfriend & mom while dealing with being in foster care. It wasn't until Hailey was able to find a safe place at the Campbell's house that you knew that someone was going to ruin what Hailey was trying to accomplish before getting kicked out of foster care with her 18th birthday just around the corner. 

You get the sense that Hailey and the Campbell's son, Brad would fall in love from the very beginning but like I just said, you knew that something was going to ruin that. I wasn't expecting who was going to ruin everything but for Hailey to come out on the other side that much stronger, is just icing on the cake! This story isn't your normal book of a foster kid falling in love with their foster family's child then have something bad happen to the foster kid and then everyone living happily ever after. It's so much more than that, it's a story of a girl coming into her own even after everything falls apart for her to find her own place in this big world! 

This is truly a book that you devour in a afternoon or at lest, I did!! If you are looking for that book that will have a love story with a girl finding her way in this world, you need to read this book!!

Thank You to S.M. Koz for writing a book that kept me glued to the pages until the very last word was read!!
