For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.

It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.


This story revolves around two teens who have been abused in the past by their foster family. Their fates collide together when they meet up again at 'High School'. Coincidence or some game of the fate... their bond grows stronger with passing time until you know what happens. Rider Stark, the heart aching hot guy of the school, Mallory Dodge, the cute & shy girl who NEEDS to get a life. Rider is confident, Mallory is shy. Rider knows interactions. Mallory's tongue stumbles a lot. Rider knows how to stand up for himself. Mallory is a well... mouse!!!
There you go, these characters aren't they relatable? I'm totally Mallory... I'm extremely shy. So I found this story to be quite relatable. And then again she meets her childhood best friend. I met my childhood friend in 9th grade, trust me puberty had really hid him hard... he was so... Rider like.. sorry this is a secret between me and my heart! Well coming back to the review, there was loads of character building in case of Mallory. She changed so much while Rider kept hiding. Neither Mallory nor I realized that. Rider was goals best friend. He helped Mallory EVERY SINGLE TIME. Jason and Hector.. who can forget them. They were awesome side kicks of the story. 
The plot was so amazing. The writing style... on point. Character building... GOSHHHH out of this world. Romance.. It's JLA dude won't it be hot? 
Overall, highly recommended contemporary like seriously highly. JLA is totally awesome. I'm so glad I read her novel and will continue reading!
Happy Reading!
