My (Not So) Random Pick
By Heather Demetrios
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Genre: YA Contemporary
Grace wants out. Out of her house, where her stepfather wields fear like a weapon and her mother makes her scrub imaginary dirt off the floors. Out of her California town, too small to contain her big city dreams. Out of her life, and into the role of Parisian artist, New York director—anything but scared and alone.
Enter Gavin: charming, talented, adored. Controlling. Dangerous. When Grace and Gavin fall in love, Grace is sure it’s too good to be true. She has no idea their relationship will become a prison she’s unable to escape.
Deeply affecting and unflinchingly honest, this is a story about spiraling into darkness—and emerging into the light again.
Okay, so I am very aware this is not a typical read for me, but I am trying to expand this year. Lilly at Lair of Books is fantastic for featuring diverse reads and she reviewed this yesterday. I could not shake the desire to pick this up after reading her review. Check it out here.
Have you read this? what are your thoughts on the synopsis?
