Told in two voices, childhood best friends Jesse and Scarlett reconnect at his grandmother's funeral and start to share their secrets and feelings for each other.
Jesse Lachlin has had his fair share of tragedy, and town folklore says he is cursed. Now his grandmother's will states that, in order to inherit his family farm, he must win the approval of his childhood best friend-- the girl he froze out his freshman year, Scarlett Copeland. Glory Gardner tells Scarlett Copeland that she has hidden psychic abilities, but Scarlett thinks Glory is delusional. What is real is Scarlett's father's irrational fears, controlling attitude, and the dark secrets at home. Scarlett may have a way to escape, but she'll have to rely on the one person she used to trust, Jesse Lachlin. -- adapted from jacket

This was so beautifully written it felt like I was reading poetry. You get so attached to the two main characters because they have gone through so much and seen horrible things that no one should ever have to see. Their character development and the development of their relationship took a while but in the end it was worth it. One thing I loved was the minor characters like Marshall, Glory, and Pastor Hughes. I did not even notice until halfway into the book that they were there to help Jesse and Scarlett move forward and I loved them for that. This is the first book I have read by Katie McGarry and I look forward to reading more of her work.
