Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Peña’s I Will Save You is a "heartwarming, root-for-the-underdog novel." [SLJ]
Kidd is running from his past and his future. No mom, no dad, and there’s nothing for him at the group home but therapy. He doesn’t belong at the beach where he works either, unless he finds a reason to stay.
Olivia is blond hair, blue eyes, rich dad. The prettiest girl in Cardiff. She’s hiding something from Kidd—but could they ever be together anyway?
Devon is mean, mysterious, and driven by a death wish. A best friend and worst enemy. He followed Kidd all the way to the beach and he’s not leaving until he teaches him a few lessons about life. And Olivia.
"A taut psychological novel...[with] intriguing, well-developed characters...[that] will stay with readers."-Booklist
"De la Peña skillfully captures the slippery sides of a schizophrenic personality in this heartwarming, root-for-the-underdog novel."-SLJ

This book really drew me in. Kidd makes you laugh, breaks your heart, shocks you and ultimately inspires you. Great read. I may even read it again.
Alright, so I just got to the end of the book, and I'm so confused... I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but could someone please explain the ending???? I don't understand the whole dialogue thing between Devon and Kidd, now that I've gotten to the end of the book.. So confused.. Thanks in advance ;)
