Things change so suddenly. One day Hanna has a long-term boyfriend; the next she realizes she doesn’t have strong feelings for him and breaks up. One day Hanna trusts her two best friends completely; the next, all of that trust is toppled. One day she feels rooted in a family and a community; the next she begins to question everything, including herself. And when Hanna meets a guy named Will, things are suddenly more complicated than ever. Just like that.Marsha Qualey is known for her characters full of heart and substance— people whom you feel you know, people whom you almost wish you could be. Hanna is such a character, and this story of a pivotal season in her life will remind readers of Sarah Dessen’s novels—insightful, addictive, and real.
