Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a riveting new story about friendship, survival, and finding your voice.
For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory "Mouse" Dodge, it's a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it's been four years since her nightmare ended, she's beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.
Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone - spending her senior year at a public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she's imagined, there's one she never dreamed of - that she'd run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn't seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn't take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she's not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider's life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out - for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.

My only regret...

The story was pretty good. I wasn't a huge fan of the narrator, but the story was sweet.

My only regret is that I didn't count how many times Mallory mentioned Rider's dimple. Seriously. She talked about that dimple A LOT.

It Was Ok

Very predictable but an easy listen. Not one of her stronger stories. If you're looking for romance, I say skip. It is a coming of age story and that's it.

Loved

One word 'Rider'. He's just the most perfect bad boy gentleman, does that make sense? Probably not but that's how I feel. Rider and Mallory were brought up in the same foster home, where they were both verbally and physically abused, Rider protected Mallory with everything he had for years. This all came to a head following a particularly bad episode which ended up with Mallory being hospitalised and eventually adopted. For four years they had no contact, until Mallory's first day at high school (after being homeschooled), when they meet again. Mallory has difficulty speaking and communicating with strangers, but not Rider, even after all those years. Rider still feels the need to protect her, but maybe they need each other. A beautifully written story about love, life and growing up. Loved the characters and would love Hector and Ainsley to have a book. Thoroughly enjoyed

Highly moralistic, American and rather irritating.

Our main character uses her upbringing, relationships and almost intriguing life to preach to us about appreciating white American middle class privolage.

Amazing book!

I loved this book. My heart felt heavy and I was moved by the characters. This was so well written, I would love to hear a sequel! The narrators voice was great and easy to listen too, I enjoyed to change of tone for each character.
