Description

After escaping an abusive past, seventeen year old Savannah lives on the street, working as a prostitute. Elijah is her only friend, but he comes from a different world. After a chance meeting with Jonah, a counselor, she has the opportunity to start a new life. Struggling to accept the things she cannot change, she pushes Jonah away, and sinks further into depression. Elijah is murdered doing business with a vicious street gang, and Savannah soothes her pain by using the drug that Elijah had stolen for her. Now she is alone fighting against the painful memories that haunt her. Can she learn to accept the things she cannot change?

This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged.
