[FREE STORY] Elliot finds street kid Lucy in his dad's shed and sparks begin to fly. Unfortunately for them both, Lucy's dangerous past is catching up with her. ***** Everyone knows the town of Godfrey has a street kid problem, but Elliot Wexler, high school student and hockey prodigy, never thought he'd see one in the flesh - at least not in his dad's shed. Despite the fact that Lucy is a thief, scavenger and certified street rat, Elliot sees something in her he's never seen in anyone else. But the closer Elliot gets to Lucy, the further she falls from her old life - and when shadows come knocking at their door, Elliot learns the truth: Lucy was never on the streets to be wild or free. Lucy's running from a dangerous past, one that puts Elliot and his family in the crossfire. ⋄ ⋄ [[Teen Fiction Award Winner, @youngadultreads]] [[Winner of the YAR Complete Awards, @youngadultreads]] Highest ranking: #1 in Teen Fiction, #3 in Romance Content and/or Trigger Warning: This book is rated 16+ due to adult content and language.
