Fifteen-year-old Lynn Marie Sugrue is doing her best to make it through a difficult summer. Her mother works long hours as a nurse, and Lynn suspects that her mother's pill-popping boyfriend has enlisted her in his petty criminal enterprises. Lynn finds refuge in online flirtations, eventually meeting up with a troubled young soldier, Logan Loy, and inviting him home.
When he's forced to stay over in a storage space accessible through her closet, and the Army subsequently lists him as AWOL, she realizes that he's the one thing in her life that she can control. Meanwhile, her mother's boyfriend is on the receiving end of a series of increasingly violent threats, which places Lynn squarely in the cross-hairs.

PRETTY DARN GOOD
Good story, would like more insight into narrator.
Probably. I think it's an interesting book. There are some really intriguing and exciting parts...it's a worthwhile read.
I would have liked a little more insight into the narrators reasons for what she did. I found the two sides of her personality - the public and the private -- to be too far from one another, and i couldn't understand her reasons for what she did with Logan.
I enjoyed Amanda Dolan's narration. She did a really good job of embodying all the characters.
Yes, definitely. I think I would describe it more as a Young Adult novel...so I would caution listeners/readers to go into the book with that in mind. There is a little bit of savvy missing in the writing, and I think with all the new novels out now with this type of story (Gone Girl, Dare Me), I have a little higher expectation.
That being said, the graphic parts of this novel are very graphic...and they definitely won't forget them anytime soon.
