Description

Starved for love and attention, 15-year-old Danielle is determined not to make the same relationship mistakes that her mother has. So when her old crush Reid expresses an interest in her, she falls hard for the much older boy who woos her in classic bad-boy fashion with sweet talk and gifts, and it doesn't hurt that he has a pretty sweet car. He is a “user and abuser,” according to Danielle’s best friends Ashley and Evan, who are worried and disgusted. But, Danielle is convinced she has found love. Then Reid fails the ultimate test, and Danielle finds the ultimate revenge. The multi-layered story delves into Danielle's rocky relationship with her mother, Evan's desire to help his troubled brother Vic, and Ashley's surprisingly mysterious past. Readers will enjoy the many dimensions of the characters.
