Description

When a relationship trespasses the boundaries of trust, the consequences are complex in this nuanced page-turner from "a formidable talent" (Booklist).

If Coley Sterling's best friend would stop hating her, if her dance-team captains would lighten up, if her friends would stop asking her about Reece, the geeky sax player she's crushing on--then her life would be perfect. Right? After all, Coley's stepdad is a successful attorney who gives Coley and her siblings everything, and her mother will stop at nothing to keep them all happy and safe--including having escaped ten years ago from the abuse of Coley's real father.
But Coley is keeping a lot of secrets. She won't admit--not even to herself--that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully crafted facade. Now, Coley and Reece are getting closer, and a decade's worth of Coley's lies are on the verge of unraveling--along with the life she thought she knew.
