Trust by Kylie Scott

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers. 

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.  

My review: 3 stars
I thought this book had a really great beginning and grabbed my attention right from the start. There was so much potential with a great story line, but fell flat after awhile. I also watched the book trailer before reading so that threw me off too because I then pictured the 2 main characters based off the trailer. Overall it was okay and passed the time just fine. If you want a mature YA book, check it out.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
