Summary
"It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, seventeen-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. Luke Sheppard is twenty-one, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner. They are young; it's not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance--and the subsequent cover-up--will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth."--

Summary
The main characters in this compelling debut are Nadia, whose mother committed suicide when Nadia was 17; Luke, the pastor's son she fell in love with as he healed from a devastating injury; and motherless Aubrey, who is damaged in less obvious ways. Set in Southern California and narrated by the elder church women of their black community, the novel provides the perspectives of both these wiser, cooler heads as well as the firsthand, painful experiences of Nadia, Luke, and Aubrey. Betrayal, loss, casual racism, and the long-term consequences of difficult decisions follow the three throughout the 17 years this novel encompasses. There's something here for fans of New Adult fiction, coming of age stories, and literary fiction alike. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
