Under the Lights by Abbi Glines - OPTIONAL

Glines, Abbi  Under the Lights (Field Party, #2), 328 pgs.  Simon Pulse, 2016.  $17.99  Content: Language: R (100+ swears; 65 “F”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG.  

Willa has returned to live with her grandmother after a tragic event landed her in a correctional facility.  Willa’s mother wants nothing to do with her and Willa has always loved living with her Nonna, but she knows that she has to be good and not cause any problems.  When Willa’s two best friends, Gunner and Brady, from her childhood notice she has returned they want to be friends again, even if Willa is trying to survive her past.  

This is a fun fast read with a compelling story line.  I couldn’t wait to find out who Willa ended up with between the two boys and the characters were interesting.  The content is over the top swearing, underage drinking and drug use, a suicide and crude sexual references.  

HS – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
