Publisher Description

Wise, tough, heart-breaking, funny, this compulsive love story is about facing your demons.Fifteen-year-old Rebecca McQuilten moves with her parents to a new city. Lonely but trying to fit in, she goes to a party, but that's when things really fall apart. I couldn't tell anyone what had happened. Especially since I was the new girl in town. Who would want to believe me?Things look up when she meets gregarious sixteen-year-old Cory Marshall. 'You're funny, Becs,' Cory said.'You have no idea,' I said, and clearly he didn't, but I was smiling anyway.And after that, he was all I could think about.Cory helps Rebecca believe in herself and piece her life back together; but that's before he shatters it all over again . . .
