Everyone should have something to rebel against.

Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he’s still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn’t ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job. The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success.

Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she's haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy. 

When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

    Wow.. I haven't read a book in a long time that made me feel. I cried so often reading this book. Not because of anything in my life. I just kept getting caught up in the story. Powerful.

    Just wow... I have never read a book like this. EVER. Never have I ever felt this way about a book. It hits me right to my core and at times I can't breathe because it's so hauntingly familiar. It makes me think of my life and the ones I love and who I call my family.
  • Excellent

    The best story I have read in a long time. My husband is an independent author and I'm his worst critic. I have learned to analyze and pick things apart to help make it a better read. I loved every part of this story. The descriptions, the character development, and the plot. I was sad to read the last page because I didn't want the story to end. Thank you for sharing this wonderful story
  • Warning: keep a box of tissues with you for the whole second half of the book.

    This book is cathartic. It reviews all the teenage hurts and traumas. Makes you realize if you have one person who will always love you then you have a family. Unconditional love does not mean you never hurt each other it means we do the best for each other.
