On the outside, Ally has everything any teenager could want. She’s beautiful, popular, and athletic. She has the right friends, an adoring boyfriend, and the picture-perfect family.
Too bad it’s all a lie.

She wants to do the unthinkable … until a boy with shaggy hair, unusual eyes, and a lip ring changes her plans.
Review by Susan:
I have read a few books by this author and absolutely loved them so I had high expectations going into this book, it really doesn’t disappoint! I really was drawn in from the first page and spat out at the end, I read this in one sitting and was left with a huge book hangover. This book was full of twists and turns, some I really didn’t see coming! I laughed, cried, swooned and shouted at my kindle while reading this, I really was taken on an emotional roller coaster, which I have come to expect from this author. The story flows beautifully, it isn’t rushed, the reader is taken on a sweet, yet sad, journey that by the end of the book leaves you feeling uplifted and with a smile on your face. This book stayed with me long after I finished it, another amazing read from this fabulous author. 5 Stars!
