ABOUT THE BOOK
HOW CAN YOU LET GO OF SOMETHING THAT YOU NEVER HAD?
Junior year for Brooke Winters is supposed to be about change. She’s transferring schools, starting fresh, and making plans for college so she can finally leave her hometown, her family, and her past behind.
But all her dreams are shattered one hot summer afternoon when her mother is arrested for killing Brooke’s abusive father. No one really knows what happened that day, whether it was premeditated or self-defense, whether it was right or wrong. And now Brooke and her siblings are on their own.
In a year of firsts—the first year without parents, first loves and first heartbreaks, and her first taste of freedom—Brooke must confront the shadow of her family’s violence and dysfunction as she struggles to embrace her identity, find her true place in the world, and learn how to let go.
