The Kind of Secret That Changes Your Life


Hattie Garrity never expected that telling her parents she wasn't going to college would be the beginning of an adventure that would explode everything she knew about her family, herself, and truth. Hattie's parents have been keeping a bigger secret than she has—a brother, eighteen years older, a drug addict who ran away before she was born. With her family falling apart, Hattie sets off on a journey to find her brother, to find herself, to fix her family, and to figure out what on earth she wants to do. Along the way she meets Tony, whose dark eyes and encouraging text messages follow her up the country and make her forget what it is she's looking for. A near fatal accident brings it all crashing down and Tony is there to help her pick up the pieces.
