Description
New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer pens a new emotionally compelling story about two teens struggling in the space between right and wrong. When his dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town, Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah. Even worse, his father's failed suicide attempt leaves Rob and his mother responsible for his care. Everyone thinks of Maegan as a typical overachiever, but she has a secret of her own after the pressure got to her last year. And when her sister comes home from college pregnant, keeping it from her parents might be more than she can handle. When Rob and Maegan are paired together for a calculus project, they're both reluctant to let anyone through the walls they've built. But when Maegan learns of Rob's plan to fix the damage caused by his father, it could ruin more than their fragile new friendship . . . In her compulsively readable storytelling, Brigid Kemmerer pens another captivating, heartfelt novel that asks the question: Is it okay to do something wrong for the right reasons?

        April 15, 2019
        Two ostracized teens forge a relationship in this dual narrative that delves deeply into family dynamics. Rob's a former golden boy whose father sustained a profound brain injury when he almost died by suicide after he was turned in for illegal activity with his investors' money. Rob is wracked by guilt that his father's clients, many of whom are his peers' families, lost everything. Maegan is the dutiful and caring daughter of a police officer who struggles in the shadow of her lacrosse-star older sister, who is home from college unexpectedly pregnant. Maegan is still living down having cheated on the SAT a year earlier, causing the scores of everyone in the room to be invalidated. When the two are thrown together for a school assignment, they slowly become confidants and chip away at one another's defenses--and their burgeoning attraction causes fallout of its own. A lot is tackled in this romantic realistic fiction novel with forays into thriller territory toward its end, but the story is well-grounded with funny dialogue and complex characters who grow believably as they wrestle with questions about ethical responsibility and grief and begin to trust one another. Rob and Maegan are white, there is some ethnic diversity in secondary characters (and a brief discussion about racism and white privilege that emerges naturally) as well as two secondary characters who are gay. Gripping, heartfelt, and layered. (Fiction. 14-18)

        Grades 9-12 Rob Lachlan becomes a social outcast after his father embezzles money from many people in the town. Now, everyone at school thinks that Rob was involved, and he's labeled a thief as well. Elsewhere, Maegan Day lets the pressure of being successful in school overcome her. After she makes a big mistake, Maegan also becomes a social outcast. Though they don't know each other well, Rob and Maegan are paired together for a class project. What begins as an awkward acquaintance blossoms into a friendship fraught with secrets and emotion. In her latest, Kemmerer (More than We Can Tell, 2018) sets the dramatic tone for the novel in two fascinating introductory chapters. Told in Rob's and Maegan's alternating perspectives, this drama romance, which features teens wrestling with complicated issues and big decisions, will leave readers asking whether it's okay to do something wrong for the right reasons. A heartfelt read from Kemmerer.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2019, American Library Association.)
