Description



About the Book



Three teens connected by their parents' bad choices share their lives and loves. Shane finds his first boyfriend, Mikayla discovers that love can be pushed too far, and Harley loses herself in her quest for new experiences.



Book Synopsis



Love--good and bad--forces three teens' worlds to tilt in a riveting novel from New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins.

Three teens, three stories--all interconnected through their parents' family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the lives of the teens begin to tilt....
Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year--and decides to keep the baby?
Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister's impending death. Can he accept Alex's love, knowing that his life, too, will be shortened?
Harley is fourteen--a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be.
Love, in all its forms, has crucial consequences in this standalone novel.



Review Quotes



Brimming with shoes about to drop (some do, some don't) and the drama her fans devour . . .--Kirkus Reviews

By turns poised and visceral.-- "The Horn Book Guide"

Graphic, bitingly honest, and voluminous verse.-- "SLJ"

This will be recognizable territory to anyone who has read Hopkins' earlier novels. . . . As a cautionary tale, however, this offers helpful insights into the continuing presence of HIV in teen lives and the urgency of making better choices in matters involving sex.--Booklist
