Publisher's Summary

Margaret Walsh worked for six years to overcome the trauma she endured at the hands of bullies as a kid, and graduation promises the chance to start over in college and leave the past behind her for good.
What was supposed to be her last summer of fun before moving to Paris turns into a nightmare as her parents announce they're taking over management of a restaurant in the New England beach town where she spent her childhood. For them, it's an amazing possibility. For her, it means confronting memories - and people - she'd rather forget.
Margie's all grown up now, but some things never change. When Zach Robinson insists he's not the bully she remembers, it's all she can do not to laugh. Still, if she's learned anything over years, it's that everyone deserves an opportunity to be better.
Even lost causes need second chances, but with her heart on the line, asking her to bet on a long shot might take more faith than she's willing to give.

Bittersweet Romance

There was a pretty serious tone to how traumatic Margie’s childhood had been due to some serious bullying. It has taken her so long to get over the panic attacks and totally change the way she copes with her triggers. Coming back to her childhood home is the last place she wants to be, but circumstances take her there to face all her childhood tormentors head on.

Narration was fairly good and brought the story to life.

I enjoyed the ups and downs and how everything came together for a sweet HEA conclusion with a few twists. This is a pretty intense story and kept me hooked from the beginning. This is a pretty clean story that can be enjoyed by either teens or adults.

The story was from Margie’s POV so it was hard to figure out what Zach’s motives and intentions were until towards the end. But everything wrapped up nicely at the end.

Great story, something for teens and adults

I listened to this book, and having listened to Starla Hutchton's Evolution: Angel, I knew I was in for a ride! The narration done by Lori Prince kept me enticed while the story that was woven around me made me laugh, cry, and walk alongside the teen characters as their lives played out. It brought back memories of when I was a teenager, and I was able to reminisce myself. I was very pleased with the ending, as it was similar (and better) than what I had hoped would happen. Will definitely be reading more of the author's work
