Starr had faced some pretty tough situations in book one of the Starr Fall series. But author, Kim Briggs, gave her a hot looking boyfriend and some wonderful friends. With friends, we can get through just about anything! Now Starr is back and so is the danger! Her friends are there by her side ready to help...
I know everyone at school thought—scratch that--assumed I had my shit together. Class President, captain of the cross-country, track, and swim teams, Miss “Voted Mostly Likely to Run a Fortune 500 Company,” but it was a lie. It was all a lie. Beneath the confident, outgoing Starr Bishop was little Jessica Chamberlain, a girl scared shitless. A girl so insecure in her day-to-day interaction with her peers that she decided to become the boss of them instead. A girl afraid to open her heart to boys because the prospect of getting said heart broken seemed too painful. The boy beside me changed me though. The moment he took my hand at the club all those days ago, he changed me.
He shudders when he inhales. A reminder of his bruised ribs. A tear streaks down my cheek. His lips, slightly parted as he exhales, spoke magic to me at the falls yesterday when he declared his love for me. As sure in his love, as he is about everything. I felt it too—that love he spoke of. I feel it now. I think I’ll feel it always.
I never gave love much thought before yesterday, never allowed myself the opportunity to love someone other than my parents. The less interaction I had with boys, the better Sami, Jody, and I got along. Another tear streams down my cheek. I long to blanket myself in his undivided attention, to escape the feelings of sadness that linger whenever I think of Sami and Jody.
I trace his lips, no longer caring if I wake him. In fact, hoping I do.
A Starr falls, and a family is found.
On the run from the Organization, Starr and Christian find safety on the Qualla Boundary with their friends, Ben and Coda, but Starr needs answers. She owes her dear dead friends, Sami and Jody, that much. She forms a team of her own to fight the general and his recruits.
Di, a mutual friend and anti-everything is a no-brainer, plus her Taser will come in handy. Frank, Starr’s BFF, will put his life on the line for her. Ben and Coda, not to be outdone by Starr’s friends, also swear their allegiance. Christian’s the only hold out. He knows what the Organization is capable of. He has the beaten body to prove it, but when Starr wants something, she gets it.
Now that the team’s together, everything should be perfect. Trouble is Starr loves Christian but so does Di. And Frank, well, he’s never been very good at hiding his love for Starr. Will his four-year long crush on her threaten the safety of the team?
Life becomes tense on the Qualla Boundary, sparks fly, and the Organization is about to smash in their door.
