From the author of Letters to the Lost comes a heart-wrenching story of two teens with big secrets and a love that could set them free.
Rev Fletcher is battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his side, he’s managed to keep them at bay...until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.
Emma Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.
When Rev and Emma meet, they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous, their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected. This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.
Did you guys read Letters to the Lost?!?! If you didn’t, you should go do that right now. Then you’ll be able to come back and tell me how excited you are for this book too! Rev was such a great character in that book and stole just about every scene he was in. I can’t wait to learn more about him in this new book. Plus, I really really really want him to have a happy ending. I also wish that this had a little better of a cover, though. I’m really not loving it. It seems to imply they spend a lot of time talking via text but I just wish it was a little more interesting. If I wasn’t already dying for this book, I probably wouldn’t give it much of a thought based on the cover. And while that’s not completely fair, the cover is what’s going to grab someone’s attention at a bookstore and I just don’t think this one cuts it. Plus, if this one is anything like Letters to the Lost, it really deserves something amazing.
Still, I can’t wait to get this book in my hands and spend more time with Rev and meet Emma and see the drama and romance and everything else that unfolds for them!
What are you waiting on this week?
