This series has been on my tbr since it came out. I purchased this one and book two during a sale with the determination that I was going to start them soon… It took me having the pleasure to meet and facebook with the author for me to remember to start it ASAP! Then I started seeing teasers for the third book in this series and I knew then that I had to get on this.
We are introduced to Ruby, an active teenager who is happy to blend in to the background more often than not. She has in a way been conditioned to not trust others, to stay quiet & to herself, and to not let anyone know the shame that she experiences on a regular basis. At the beginning of the book her best friend is Dragon a dog that isn’t really hers but doesn’t know it.
Right before the last week of the summer camp that Ruby works at, she officially meets Brent. He may have not noticed her before but he sure does now that they have come face-to-face.
Ruby and Brent start to spend a great deal of time together. Ruby is coming out of her shell and even has a best friend in Lexi. But the secrets that she is hiding from everyone will quickly come to light in a way that she cannot control. There will be heart break, sadness, and pain and also a very beautiful love story. This book reminded me about how awesome YA can be. I cannot wait to read the next one.
