1. It involves a blue-haired guy named Brooks who smokes Indian Spirit cigarettes and has a nipple ring.
2. It involves a zebra-stripe-haired girl named Gannon who works in a hardware store, likes 80s horror movies, and avoids her house like the plague.
3. It is the story of what happens when one hot mess falls for another hot mess and instead of saving them, their love nearly destroys them.
And now, without further ado:
Seventeen-year-old Amelia Gannon is overwhelmed. Her parents are pre-occupied with her high-needs adopted brothers, her best friend is more interested in bumming cigarettes than bonding, and her job at the hardware store feels more and more like a life sentence. She finds an escape in troubled new guy, Michael Brooks. He's obnoxious, possessive, and addictive. Gannon lets him insert himself into her life, and Brooks is just as addicted to her as she is to him. Swept into an intense relationship, their passion ultimately becomes dangerous to them both.
I love this cover so much. I love it when I look at it next to Fault Line. I love it when I read that tag line. I love the sparseness of it. I love imagining it on bookshelves. If you want to add it to your TBR pile on GoodReads, you can do so here.
