Hannah and Emory were best friends, until a couple of months ago, and now they don’t talk at all.  Hannah lives in a deeply religious home with two supportive parents but is starting to have feelings for her twenty-something teacher.  Emory is working for a scholarship in drama and spends a lot of time with her boyfriend.  When Emory’s boyfriend has a life-threatening tragedy, Emory and Hannah’s paths cross again, bringing out the secret that separated them in the first place.  

I enjoyed this story and the plot moved at a good pace, offering enough information to keep me interested.  As well done as the story is, there is a lot of content that makes it hard to recommend.  There is off page sex, on page sex, a sexual assault and an inappropriate relationship with a minor.
