Katelyn and her little brother Kevin arrive in a small town in Montana from California. The town is so small there is only one grocery store and one gas station. They live in the only run down trailer park. But for Katelyn this is actually a step-up from living from homeless shelter to living in the car with a hole in the floorboard. Katelyn is both abused and neglected by her Mom but gladly suffers and covers up the secrets to keep Kevin safe and with her. She fears any interference from the state would end her and Kevin in seperate foster homes. Then comes Max who likes Katelyn instantly and manages to break through all of her self protective walls.
This is another wonderful love story written by Tiffany King that whispers of love at first sight and soulmates. Katelyn's life is harsh and gritty that bases the story in reality. Max and all the kids in Katelyn's class are friendly and welcoming to the newcomers. The book made me experience all of Katelyn's highs and lows right along with her. I couldn't put it down.
