Sawyer is a passenger in his life. His parents and girlfriend are the drivers, making nearly all of his decisions for him: what classes to take, where to go to college, what career to pursue, what to do for fun, and who to associate with, just for starters. He doesn't mind his passive role, since it's not a bad life.

Than he meets someone new, someone different. She's fun, easy to talk to, and spontaneous. And she challenges Sawyer to step outside his comfortable boundaries, to try things he would never have considered before. The more he does, the more he likes it, and the more he begins to question the life everyone else has planned for him.

Except Grace, his exciting new friend, has plans of her own. Plans that might not be what he thinks they are. Plans that might lead him further astray than he ever expected.

This is a casually suspenseful read that is easy to slip into, goes quickly, and has more surprises than readers might expect. Appealing, intriguing, and fun.

This book was not at all what I expected. I liked it, but I really disliked the ending. And Sawyer's parents were sooo annoying!

"You're not having fun?"

He was. A different kind of fun. Not Xbox fun or birthday fun or sex fun. More like hands up, first car in the roller coaster, busted-safety-bar fun. Only better than that.
