The Truth About Larkin Sawyer
Larkin Sawyer’s parents thought moving would solve all of their problems, or at least make it seem like they weren’t there. As for Larkin, she knows better. Out of sight doesn’t mean out of mind. It just meant you knew what everybody else was thinking, but you couldn’t address it out loud.
Bombarded with a new town, a new school, and the daunting prospect of fitting in, Larkin does her best to put her past behind her while trying to go unnoticed in her new hometown. This strategy works for the most part, and blending in is pure bliss for Larkin until she is given an assignment for her senior English class.
On the surface it’s simple: Tell the Truth.
But what Larkin’s teacher could never have guessed was that telling the truth was one of the hardest things she would ever have to do. To make matters worse, she manages to gain the attention of a boy whose reputation for fighting and delinquency definitely precedes him.
Someone like the aloof and withdrawn Caleb Ford is the last thing Larkin needs, but when they accidentally switch English assignments she is forced to spend time with him in order to discern his motives and figure out if he intends to tell anyone her deepest, darkest secrets.
It starts out as a burden and the most dreaded venture of her life, but over time Larkin starts to understand that Caleb isn’t all he’s been talked up to be. On the contrary, he seems to be hiding just as many demons as she is.
