A novel in verse follows the experiences of fourteen-year-old Lilly, as an innocent flirtation turns into sexual abuse by a friend of her parents and she is tormented by her abuser's threat to ruin her family and her own desperate need for help.
Lily was only twelve when Luke left. Now, at fourteen, she feels transformed. She can't wait to see how Luke will react when he sees the new her. And when her mother tells her that Luke will be staying with them for a while, in the bedroom right next to hers, her heart nearly stops. His lingering looks set Lily on fire; when they're alone, he kisses her. Luke would never do anything to hurt her... would he? -- adapted from amazon.com info
