Carry Me Home
Seventeen-year-old Riley McNally isn't used to change, but when her father is convicted of DUI Manslaughter, she's forced to move in with her Uncle in the cozy town of Shefford, Vermont.
Already midway through Senior Year, Riley has few plans to tie herself down, wishing only to go through the motions until her Cornell acceptance sends her cross country. But when she crosses paths with Jason “Jay” Hawthorne, the boy living across the street, the path she’s always thought to be straight and narrow begins to bend. He’s carefree, goofy, effortlessly charming.
As Riley finds herself drawn closer to Jay, and the town of Shefford tugs an inexplicable sense of belonging within her, she may just find that everyone has baggage, and sometimes, the only way to let go of that baggage is to find a way to leave behind the weight that it carries.
