Publisher's Summary

Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad - her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares - has been canceled.
After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb’s free...if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers.
Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak". Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It’s a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.

LOVE Simone Elkeles

Great Read (well listen) as always! I actually started backwards with the Perfect Chemistry series and have also listened to Wild Cards. I loved how a villain in this book actually has a whole book about him in another story. I am 33 years old but love teen romance novels. The only change I would make to most of the Elkeles books is that the characters start the relationship a little sooner. In this book they did. Perfect book to me. The Perfect Chemistry series is still my favorite, but I love them all!
