West Ashby seems to have it all--looks, a football future, and any
girl he wants. No one, not even his closest friend Brady, knows
that his dad--West's biggest fan--is dying of cancer. Two years
ago, Maggie Carleton saw her father murder her mother, and once she
told police what happened, she refused to speak another word. Now
Maggie lives with her cousin Brady's family, and when she meets
West, she sees the pain in his eyes that no one else recognizes.
The bond between West and Maggie grows, and eventually
Maggie rediscovers her voice to walk West through his father's final days. Aided by chapters that alternate between West's and Maggie's perspectives, what could be a typical romance--both are drop-dead gorgeous and could have anyone they want--is raised to a new level by Maggie's self-imposed silence and the grief they are both experiencing. Glines' novel will be welcomed by fans of Lurlene McDaniel who want something with more depth.--Booklist Online "August 31, 2015"
