For seventeen-year-old Corey Ryder, life on the road is all she’s ever known. A trainee trapeze artist in her aunt’s circus, she’s never found herself in one place for more than a few weeks at a time. For her, it’s a way of life.

But when a tragic accident leaves their entire livelihood in tatters, Corey is forced to leave the circus behind and revisit a part of her life she’s been trying to forget: her mom. All of a sudden, what once was just another stop on an endless road trip becomes the very center of Corey’s life.

Unnerved by the stark differences between circus life and that of her new home, Corey’s convinced she’ll never settle in. She can’t wait for the moment she’ll be able to break free from the bubble of Sherwood, California and return to life on the road. But when an unlikely friendship sparks between her and Luke Everett, the school’s Golden Boy, Corey comes to realize it may be the most unexpected bonds that keep you tethered.

i hate people who do that, like there's other seats open, but they decide sit DIRECTLY next to you
not even halfway through the chapter and a ship is already sailing
I guess I'm the only one who is actually a trapeze. I don't perform though. I do that along with my studies. And it's amazing!!!
No fries are just fries.
                              
                              Unless they're soggy school fries, then I do agree with you. Just fries.
