Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.
After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.
While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.
An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.
Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

What an amazing journey I just took with Kylie Scott’s epic words! This is my first Kylie Scott book. I know, I know. You are thinking what rock have you been living under for this to be your first book by this amazing author? Well, it’s a rock that was just obliterated to smithereens by this beautiful, real, riveting and absolutely stunning, captivating read!
This YA read held my attention way more than I could’ve ever anticipated. Edie and John’s story is full to the brim of every emotion. Trust is filled with the good, the bad and the ugly. The light and the dark. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It was highly original, unique and beautiful.
It all started with getting snacks for girl’s night that ended up one of the worst nights of Edie’s life. Her trust was broken in life, the world and her friends. She felt violated, betrayed and alone. One night shattered her world but it didn’t shatter the trust she found in John at The Drop Stop. The boy she didn’t think she would see again.
Starting a new school after the robbery, Edie wanted to escape and try to start again somewhere fresh. She didn’t expect to run into her savior at her new school, but there he was. From there we watch a beautiful unlikely friendship between two complete opposites bloom. Edie is living life on the edge and experiencing a lot of firsts while John is trying to settle down and escape the life he’s been living. The relationship between them gets tested, strained, things get awkward yet they always find themselves being drawn back to each other.
What happens though when the past you are both trying so hard to forget, finds you again? Well, you TRUST of course….
My first Kylie Scott book will certainly not be my last!
