Gr 9 Up—Emily's world is just the way she thinks she wants it to be…calm, normal, and filled with the love of her mother and stepfather. She denies an interest in Eli's world, her biological father, who is an important member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle gang. While she does seem to have some questions about Eli, Emily doesn't want to explore her dad's world in any depth. When her parents tell her she will be attending Eli's mother's wake, she is not thrilled, but agrees to go. There, she is thrown into a world of feuding motorcycle gangs, family secrets, and complicated feelings for a young man named Oz. One quick visit turns into an extended trip as the teen tries to unravel the mysteries of her parents' pasts, learning her place in two communities, and investigating her growing feelings for Oz. Emily starts to discover there may be more to life than her protected version. McGarry adeptly splits the narrative between the two protagonists and creates a story that readers will not want to put down. VERDICT This novel will be enjoyed by teens looking for a romantic and thrilling escape.—Jessica Strefling, Pepperdine School of Law Library, CA
