Publisher's Summary

Kensington Worth had a vision for her senior year. It involved her best friends, her posh private school in downtown Chicago, time alone with her piano until her audition was perfected, and a guaranteed ticket into the best music programs in the world.
Instead, a nightmare took over.
It didn't happen all at once, but her life unraveled quickly - a tiny thread that evil somehow kept pulling until everything precious was taken from her. She was suddenly living miles away from her old life, trapped in an existence she didn't choose - one determined to destroy her from the inside, leaving only hate and anger behind. It didn't help that her neighbor, the one whose eyes held danger, was enjoying every second of her fall.
Owen Harper was trouble; his heart wild, and his past was the kind that's spoken about in whispers. And somehow, his path was always intertwined with Kensington's, every interaction crushing her, ruining her hope for any future better than her now. Sometimes, though, what everyone warns is trouble, is exactly what the heart needs.
Owen Harper was consumed with darkness, and it held onto his soul for years. When Kensington looked at him, she saw a boy who'd gotten good at taking others down when they threatened his carefully balanced life. But the more she looked, the more she saw other things, too - good things...things to admire. Things...to love. Things that made her want to be reckless. And those things...they were the scariest of all.

Cute, coming of age love story

I bought this listen on a whim. This is definitely directed at the YA audience and its stellar in that regard. The story of Kensington and Owen dealing with very real, very difficult issues with maturity and levity. This listen was enjoyable even if it was a little "young" for my doddering 53 years of age! I used a credit, but I would recommend awaiting a sale.

Compelling story very well read

I've got to admit, I missed the convention that Ginger Scott has set up in some of her other novels, where she bounces back-and-forth between the male and female voices. But I only missed that because there were times I really wondered what Owen was thinking. This reader never failed me, however, as she took me through the wild ride of this relationship, keeping all the voices (young, older, and senior) distinctive and easy to follow. Laura Darrell made this wonderful book a lovely listen.
