Sometimes you pick up a book that is so emotionally disturbing, and yet so incredibly powerful, it just won’t let go. Even when the story is at its grimmest, you simply can’t stop reading. The book I’m giving away today was like that for me. Sexy, hard-hitting, utterly heartbreaking…this sequel was everything I expected and a whole lot more.
I THINK she would’ve liked him. Maybe not at first, but I think my mom would’ve fallen in love with his smile just like I did. It’s kind of more of a smart-ass smirk than a smile, really. Quirked up on one side more than the other, it seems to say you’re the butt of a joke that only he knows. I always liked that smile, even when he wasn’t giving it to me. I must’ve been in love with him forever.
Keeping Secrets is the perfect title for this series following two very different boys in their discovery that hiding the things that matter most has the power to harm not only themselves, but the people they care about. Heartless, the first of four parts, saw bully Jason Strummer telling the story as he and Tommy negotiated their stormy history to embark on a tentative romance. In Clueless, Tommy takes over the narrative, where upon it quickly becomes apparent that there exists far more to him than the reliable jock who is Jason’s anchor.
Out jock Tommy Johnson and former bully Jason Strummer have settled into a surprisingly comfortable routine. They’re even planning a special camping trip for just the two of them for their one-month anniversary. Tommy doesn’t think things can get any better—until Jason’s past catches up to them.
