About the Book



Willa can't erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she's on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her. High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa--she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that's all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know. Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady. He, too, is larger than life and a high school football star--not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life and doesn't care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception, and he understands the girl she's become in a way no one else can. As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love...even if it means losing each other forever.



Book Synopsis



In the follow-up to Abbi Glines's #1 New York Times bestseller Until Friday Night--which bestselling author Kami Garcia called "tender, honest, and achingly real"--three teens from a small southern town are stuck in a dramatic love triangle.

Willa can't erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she's on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa--she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that's all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star--not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn't care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception--and he understands the girl she's become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love...even if it means losing each other forever.

No one knows the pain heendures every day having to watch his dad die from cancer. West does not feelcomfortable telling anyone about his father's illness. However, when he meets agirl who cannot speak, he finally bears his soul. Maggie is just as shocked asWest when she responds, sharing her story with him. Having someone who canunderstand their pain and help them heal is a blessing for both of them. Glinesbelievably shows readers that love, trust, and friendship can result from somuch tragedy. The narrative illustrates that there is more to high school thanthe big game. VERDICT Romance fans will love therelationship between the protagonists and be sucked into the story line of thecircumstances that bring them together.--School Library Journal, on UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT "August 2015"

West Ashby seems to have it all--looks, a football future, and any girl he wants. No one, not even his closest friend Brady, knows that his dad--West's biggest fan--is dying of cancer. Two years ago, Maggie Carleton saw her father murder her mother, and once she told police what happened, she refused to speak another word. Now Maggie lives with her cousin Brady's family, and when she meets West, she sees the pain in his eyes that no one else recognizes. The bond between West and Maggie grows, and eventually
Maggie rediscovers her voice to walk West through his father's final days. Aided by chapters that alternate between West's and Maggie's perspectives, what could be a typical romance--both are drop-dead gorgeous and could have anyone they want--is raised to a new level by Maggie's self-imposed silence and the grief they are both experiencing. Glines' novel will be welcomed by fans of Lurlene McDaniel who want something with more depth.--Booklist Online, on UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT "August 31, 2015"
