Zar Evans is not your typical high school senior; in fact she is anything by normal. Dressing to the trendiest Goth fashion, Zar wears nothing but black from head to toe. Not that this warrants unwanted attention, but she is also top in her class and is looking at a full academic scholarship to Iowa State in the fall.
Loudon Clarke is an all star athlete. He plays three varsity sports and has the world in his hands. Except for one thing; Loudon is failing majority of his subjects. He is about to be suspended from the basketball team risking his athletic scholarship.
Zar and Loudon would normally never cross paths, until these two are brought together when Zar’s brother proposes to Loudon’s sister. With an upcoming wedding and a lot of planning Zar and Loudon are stuck with one another regardless of their differences.
Zar has hidden behind the pain she deals with on a daily basis for years. Loudon has never had to feel pain nor the ignorance of his peers. Can opposites really bring these two together or will they be pulled even further apart.
Only one thing is for sure, it is impossible to fight the connection of pierced love when one is willing to change for happiness.

Beautifully written and emotionally encompassing journey of a teen dealing with pressures she tries to hide alone. This story had me completely engrossed and not wanting to put it down until the last page, and even then I wanted more of their story.
Zar's story is written almost as a journal and you can't help feeling the emotions pouring out. Raw pain and glimmers of hope as she struggles to deal with the darkness that surrounds her. She wants to live in the light.
Loudon is so totally sweet and charmingly written. Old fashion values, a need to protect, and a fierce heart. He is her calm to her storm, helping to try and guide Zar into the light.
Absolutely recommend this book to anyone who has teens in their life. Not just parents but friends and other teens too. This book was just completely amazing and expressed the realism of the emotions Zar went through with such precision. You will not be disappointed.
