"Southern charm oozes off the page"* of this sexy and poignant novel about family, friendships, and first romance--from Jaye Robin Brown, the critically acclaimed author of Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit. It's Jandy Nelson's The Sky Is Everywhere meets Sarah Dessen's This Lullaby.
Amber Vaughn is a good girl. She sings solos at church, babysits her nephew after school, and spends Friday nights hanging out at her best friend Devon's house. But when she learns about an audition at a prestigious arts school, Amber decides that her dream--to sing on bigger stages--could also be her ticket to a new life.
Devon's older brother, Will, helps Amber prepare for her one chance to try out. The more time Will and Amber spend together, the more complicated their relationship becomes . . . and Amber starts to wonder if she's such a good girl, after all.
Then, in an afternoon, the bottom drops out of her family's world--and Amber is faced with an impossible choice between her promise as an artist and the people she loves. Amber always thought she knew what a good girl would do. But between right and wrong, there's a whole world of possibilities.
