Max would follow Sadie anywhere, so when Sadie decides to ditch her problems and escape to Nebraska for the summer, it's only natural for Max to go along. Max is Sadie's confidante, her protector, and her best friend. This summer will be all about them. This summer will be perfect.
And then they meet Dylan. Dylan is dark, dangerous, and intoxicating, and he awakens something in Max that she never knew existed. No matter how much she wants to, she can't back away from him.
But Sadie has her own intensity, and has never allowed Max to become close with anyone else. Max doesn't know who she is without Sadie, but she'd better start learning. Because if she doesn't make a decision--about Dylan, about Sadie, about herself--it's going to be made for her.
"Reed (Crazy) powerfully demonstrates how 13 years of personal history weigh on Max, who has always been forced into the role of protector when it comes to Sadie."
"Reed effectively portrays the end of an obsessive adolescent relationship.... Teen girls who have experienced similar friendships will find this resonates."
