NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LIBRARY JOURNAL
In Robin York's sizzling debut, a college student is attacked online and must restore her name—and stay clear of a guy who's wrong for her, but feels so right.


When Caroline Piasecki's ex-boyfriend posts their sex pictures on the Internet, it destroys her reputation as a nice college girl. Suddenly her once-promising future doesn't look so bright. Caroline tries to make the pictures disappear, hoping time will bury her shame. Then a guy she barely knows rises to her defense and punches her ex to the ground.

West Leavitt is the last person Caroline needs in her life. Everyone knows he's shady. Still, Caroline is drawn to his confidence and swagger—even after promising her dad she'll keep her distance. On late, sleepless nights, Caroline starts wandering into the bakery where West works.

They hang out, they talk, they listen. Though Caroline and West tell each other they're "just friends," their feelings intensify until it becomes impossible to pretend. The more complicated her relationship with West gets, the harder Caroline has to struggle to discover what she wants for herself—and the easier it becomes to find the courage she needs to fight back against the people who would judge her.

When all seems lost, sometimes the only place to go is deeper.

They are books I will cherish."—Lea Franczak, USA Today

Excerpts-
  • From the book

    BEFORE

    Sometimes I hate the girl I was back then. It's like how, when you see a horror movie, you can't help but feel contempt for the virgin who goes for a walk in the woods after midnight. How can she be so stupid? Doesn't she know she's about to get gruesomely hacked to death?

    She should know. That's why it's so hard to watch. Because you want her to know. You want her to defend herself, and you look down on her for not knowing, even though obviously it's the guy who hacks her up who's at fault.

    The thing is, the movie makes him seem like a force of nature--unstoppable--so the virgin comes off as a total dumb-ass for not checking the forecast to see if it calls for serial murder before she skips off into the night.

    These days, if someone sent me a text that said nothing but OMG, I wouldn't wonder if whatever I was about to find out was going to be bad. I'd only wonder how bad and how long it was going to take me to crawl out of whatever pit I was about to fall in. But in August of my sophomore year at Putnam College, I didn't worry. I thought maybe Bridget, my best friend and roommate, had gotten distracted before she could finish her train of thought.

    I towel-dried my hair and stood up to lob the damp towel into my laundry basket in the closet. Missed. By the time I'd picked it up and put it where it belonged, another message had popped up on my phone, this time with a link.

    You need to see this, it said.

    And then, immediately after, I'm so sorry.

    I clicked the link.

    I think part of me knew even then. Because the thing about being a good girl is, you spend your whole life developing a finely honed radar for detecting anything that could potentially cause people to love you less.

    Girls like me--or, I guess, girls like the one I was last August--we eat approval. We live for it. So when we do something dumb--or, say, when we do something really monumentally idiotic--we know.

    The screen filled up with a picture of me, topless, with Nate's dick in my mouth.

    I looked, and I took a deep breath. I closed my eyes.

    I could actually feel it--the solid ground of my life, cracking open.

    It sounds too drama llama when I put it like that, I know, but I can't think of another way to describe it. One minute, I was on firm footing--a nineteen-year-old overachieving politics geek, on track to go to law school and take the world by storm--and the next, my feet had lost purchase on the floor. I sagged against the desk. I couldn't get enough air.

    The shock of it didn't take any time at all to sink in. It sank in immediately, traveling some kind of shortcut path from my eyes to the area of my brain that had made a quiet, private list of the consequences of those photos the second Nate took them.

    Everyone will see you, mock you, hate you.

    You won't get into law school.

    You'll never get a Rhodes.

    You'll never be a judge or get elected to office.

    This changes everything.

    Seeing those pictures--I was devastated. Immediately. Because I'd known.

    That night when I'd gone down on Nate and he'd lifted his iPhone in the air and aimed it at my head, my good-girl radar was working fine. Bad idea, the radar told me. Such a bad idea. But I overrode it, because Nate was in a mood, and I thought if I went along, it would bring him out of it.

    You trust him, I told myself. Nate would never.

    But he did. He must have. The website identified me as Caroline Piasecki from Putnam, Iowa, and Nate was the only one who had those pictures. Either he put them there, or he gave them to someone who did.

    There were two shots of my face smiling. One...
