It's a very moving book that makes you think of lots of things! Things that actually do happen in real life!
-Guardian

Synopsis

If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge.
If your brother's accused of a terrible crime but says he didn't do it, you defend him.

When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her, his world begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the offense, her world begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide.

This is a brave and unflinching novel from the bestselling author of Before I Die. It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all, it's a book about love.


From the Hardcover edition.

In a way it is a modern take on Romeo and Juliet, though the consequences are less severe and I found it much more entertaining.

However, though Mickey and Ellie's characters were fully developed, I felt somewhat disappointed that Karyn's and Tom's were never fully understood.
