Things change so suddenly. one day Hanna has a long-term boyfriend; the next, she realizes she doesn’t have strong feelings for him and breaks up with him. one day Hanna trusts her two best friends completely; the next, all of that trust is toppled. And then Hanna finds herself the bearer of a major secret: she was the last person to see two teenagers before they died in an accident on the icy lake. she can’t tell anyone, so when Hanna finds herself drawn to will, the elusive boy she’s noticed around town, the kind of boy who’d increase any girl’s pulse, she doesn’t hold back. what she learns about him will astonish her. but what she learns about herself—her friendships, her family, her life—will affect her far more.

Marsha Qualey lives in Plymouth, Minnesota.From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up–Hanna Martin, 18, is independent, opinionated, and fierce. Yet, even for her, taking a walk late at night, alone, along Lake Calhoun is definitely near the top of her list of dumb things to do, and that act has serious consequences for her. Deeply affected by an encounter with two teens shortly before their tragic death at the lake, Hanna uses her talent as an artist to explore conflicted feelings of guilt, disengagement, and secrecy; art becomes both obsession and therapy. Her best friends Maura and Kelsey react to her distress in ways that begin to unravel the skein of their long friendship. Her mother is astute and caring, but Hanna will not confide in her. When Hanna encounters Will, who was also connected to the fateful events of that night on the lake, their reactions to one another ring true: attracted, confused, hopeful. Qualey writes with quiet fierceness, giving her characters depth and the plot complexities that transcend the sometimes hackneyed trend toward grim realism in YA novels. Previous novels feature poignant characters and out-of-the-ordinary plots. With this new offering, Qualey does not disappoint.–Roxanne Myers Spencer, Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green
