From small town Appalachia to an elite Connecticut prep school, their bond is unbreakable. Right?

Cash and Delaney have been best friends for years, supporting each other through the perils of aggressive drug dealers, dead mothers, and dying grandfathers. Delaney, though, is a certified genius and when her breakthrough discovery lands her a spot in a Connecticut prep school, she wastes no time making sure that Cash gets in right next to her. But is their friendship enough to leave behind everything he knows?
Jeff Zentner didn’t make me cry in Starbucks this time, but only because I was at home while reading this book. I love the way he writes the depth of friendship and love between all of the characters he creates. Even during their darkest moments, while you feel for the characters’ pain and trauma, there is never any worry that their relationships will be irreparably broken, regardless of what changes may occur.
