The New York Times bestselling author of Counting By 7s, Holly Goldberg Sloan, crafts a powerful drama that follows up her debut young adult novel, I'll Be There. Emily Bell has it all-or so she thinks. She's in love with a boy named Sam, and this summer is destined to be the best they've ever known. No one suspects that Sam's violent father, who blames the Bell family for his incarceration, is planning a jailbreak. Meanwhile, Sam and Emily's idyllic romance is under fire from a charismatic new girl in town, and Emily begins to question the loyalty of the person she thought she could trust most. But when true danger comes knocking, her only hope for survival may be from the most unexpected place.
Called "immensely satisfying, heartfelt, and lyrical" by SLJ, this riveting story of friends and enemies-and how those roles can shift in a matter of moments-is now available in paperback.
