In this Hickville High novel, Ryan wants to have a fresh start. She blames herself for the situation her family found themselves in. So she is trying hard to be better. She even joins the Purity Club to show she is serious. She wants her past to disappear. Unfortunately that doesn’t happen. When the girls from the PC find out about her past they try to “scrub her clean”. The president, Macy, scraped up Ryan’s face, arms and legs with scouring pads. Justin Hays was driving by after being kicked out of the Homecoming Dance. He stopped his truck and ran to stop what was going on. He took care of Ryan the best he could after the incident. His interest was also peaked. He knew her from shop class and decided he wanted to get to know her better. He and Ryan are both tested when she is continued to be bullied and worries about her face. He is thrown into a tailspin when his mom hits bottom. They both learn what kind of strength they have.
I like this book. I also like the series so far. It was interesting to see how they lived in Chicago and then ended up on a farm doing chores. I loved that they were completely out of their element. Ryan was basically to blame but you never really know a lot about the situation. The author would tease you with tidbits. With this book Ryan’s story comes to light. You learn more about her struggle and her guilt. I found that I really liked her. She is my favorite sister. I liked her attitude and her strength.
Justin was an awesome character too. He was more complex that meets the eye. His home life is not what I expected and it was an emotional journey for him to come to terms with everything. I like how the author included the reader at a major part of his realizations.
This story is more intense than the first, more raw with emotion. I wasn’t surprised by Ryan’s secret but glad she was strong enough to share. Excellent read. I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
One of the aspects of this book that I really love is a bit hard to explain. The characters in this book deal with some very difficult issues, and some authors become so focused on problems that the story gets lost. Here the characters and the story completely draw us in, and we feel that they exist in their own right. Ryan and Justin are much more than just a bundle of problems; Mary Karlik has made them into real people.
