When her dad is transferred, Rachel Wood is uprooted from her home in Pennsylvania and forced to enter a new high school, in 10th grade, in an affluent suburb in Westchester, New York. She finds herself in way over her head, as she struggles to come to grips with meeting new friends, finding a boyfriend, avoiding the cliques of mean girls, and figuring out how to survive in such a hostile new world. She has trouble navigating this new world, where drinking and drugs seem the norm, and where social pressures build on her from every direction.
Everything seems to go wrong for Rachel, until salvation comes in the form of Rob, a football player who takes a liking to her. But just as there romance is about to blossom, she finds herself confused by his actions.
As things reach a low point, Rachel meets a mysterious boy from her school, Benji, a loner who keeps apart from the other kids, and who takes her on a ride on his motorcycle. They have an unforgettable night together in an amusement park—until something goes horribly wrong, and Benji shocks her by saving her life.
Rachel knows that Benji is different from everyone else, and she knows that he is the love of her life. And as their romance deepens, she has to decide if she is willing to give up everything to find out his secret…
Not great :(
This book is so boring I almost fell asleep for the first 3/4. The main girl is bland and boring and has nothing special about her despite the authors intention that she supposedly is... Towards the end she finally meets this 'vampire' (after suffering through reading what a backwards goody two shoes she is). And she basically has a total personality transplant and walks off with a stranger, falling in love with him at first sight not even knowing his name, when literally a second before she was all into another boy and devastated he'd stood her up. I feel like its some tween high school story that's jumping on the vampire bandwagon. It's so dull don't even waste your time.
I found this book severely lacking in character development. It felt very rushed from the get go and the dialog was very basic. The relationship towards the end wasn't explained at all and I have to admit I cringed at the dialog between the two characters. Nothing worth reading really happened throughout the whole book, I won't be reading any more into this.
