Summary: Sometimes finding love means taking the scenic route …

Living with her faultfinding mother has taught Leslie not to ask for much. Just watch your step, stay on the sidelines, and take what you can get. But she wants a mom who thanks her for cleaning the kitchen instead of yelling at her for missing a spot, and a boyfriend who does more than score her a seat at the popular table—someone who actually notices her sitting there.

So when Cain, the school heartbreaker, turns his Carolina blue eyes her way, Leslie can’t help but be tempted, even if he’s her boyfriend’s best friend. Things get even more complicated when Leslie strikes up unlikely friendships with Meredith, Cain’s girlfriend, and Dennis, a boy addicted to cigarettes and solitude. Despite his tough exterior, Dennis seems to understand Leslie in a way that no one ever has, and to need her as much as she needs him.

For the first time in her life, Leslie feels like she could belong. She’s just not sure where.

Just in time for the holidays, this teen romance features a Halloween betrayal, a Thanksgiving revelation, an unexpected Christmas gift, and a New Year’s Eve party where everything comes to a head. Will Leslie ring in the New Year with the right guy, or end up right back where she started—alone? Continue reading


Divergent Recap – Chapter 21

In which Four sweeps in and saves the day…

Yesterday I almost choked on a calamari ring and it was a very traumatic experience as I imagined the calamari coming alive and trying to strangle me from the inside of my throat. I know, it was weird. My anxiety kicked in, but I managed to swallow the calamari and not die. After that, I didn’t feel like reading anything about Tris and risk getting annoyed about how little this book understands about fear, so me and my boyfriend watched a Korean movie, A Tale of Two Sisters. Movie I totally recommend. End of my rant.

Tris is walking around the compound thinking about the last 4 days since she spoke with Tori. Can you believe we didn’t get one chapter for each day? I’m so shocked. Especially since this phase of training is supposed to be so traumatic. During those 4 days, the Erudite managed to release another 2 articles about Abnegation: one in which they accuse Abnegation for withholding luxuries from the other factions, and another in which they question why should the Abnegation be the only one ruling the other faction, instead of having a democracy. The latter makes sense. Why don’t they have a democracy? Continue reading
