He lives it, breathes it. He embraces anything that numbs and takes his mind somewhere else, a world where his mother is herself and not just a shell, and his brother didn't almost kill her, severing any relationship they had. But more importantly, Milo drowns out the guilt for leaving his mother and not being able to forgive his brother. He drowns his pride and moves on to another girl and another party, pretending that life isn't moving on around him and he's stuck in the same place. He's stuck in the past and doesn't know how to let go.
Maya is trouble.
She's done the party scene and has had her fair share of close calls and handcuffs. Not the kinky kind. She's so over it all and fought like hell for that life to let go so she could move on. She now works as a teen counselor. Her life is better, but her life is empty. She has no one but her brother in the whole world left and he's sick with a disease that no medicine can cure.
When they meet, a romance that scares them both emerges, but the love you fight for is the love that can mend bridges, heal scars, and open closed hearts. They'll need each other, they'll want each other, they'll have each other.
But will it all come too late

AUTHOR: SHELLY CRANE
I totally loved Milo's story. It will be forever etched into my heart. I laughed, cried and fell in love with every single character. This book was very personal for me. It was very real and personally difficult to read at times because of the spiritual place in which I currently abide in this wonderful space called life. Never take it for granted, life is a gift denied to many. I loved the raw emotions and dark sides of these characters and the surreal way addiction was dealt with. my favorite character was Will who is near and dear to my heart. You will fall in love with Milo and Maya and be cheering for their progress. This is my new favorite book by this author because of the way it has touched my soul. I absolutely adore this book.
