It stayed that way until her junior year in high school and the sudden, unexpected crash landing of Childress High’s star defensive end, Dustin Hill, into her life. The unlikely pair are thrown together and discover they have more in common than either of them thought, and before either Miki or Dustin are prepared an unbreakable bond is formed between them. The only problem is, Dustin’s already in a relationship, and his controlling family have made it clear they want him to stay there.
Against Miki’s better judgment the two grow closer until fate’s twisted sense of humor intervenes and everything in Miki’s world is scattered, plunging her into a crisis she’s not sure she will ever recover from.
Miki is a character that is such a pure soul. She radiates goodness, hope, and strength. She’s the girl we should all aspire to be. Able to tackle the bleakest of situations with such selflessness. And along comes the boy who has everything. The boy who isn’t all that different from her. The boy that I wasn’t sure had her best interest at heart at first, but I grew to love.
Miki’s story will make you believe in true love. It will show you it’s strength, it’s hope, it’s sacrifice. You will walk away from this book shattered, but at peace. You know the saying everything happens for a reason? this book is the epitome of that saying. It has it’s lighter moments too, especially with her best friend. Her family reminds me so much like mine, right down to the crazy kids.
If there’s any book you must read this year, it’s this one. I have been a reader of LJ Stock for quite some time, and she has created magic with this book
