Georgia knows all about secrets. Her friendship with her best friend Riley is bulit on secrets. She knows that with secrets, some things are meant to ignored and unsaid. Georgia and Riley travel with nine other suburban Pennsylvania kids to Anapra, a squatters' village in the heat-flattened border city of Juarez, Mexico. Secrets seem to acluminate and threaten both a friendship and a life. Certainties unravel. Reality changes. Georgia is left to figure out who she is outside the world she's always known.
Georgia was an interesting girl. She wanted to help others, which I really admired. She also really wanted to be perfect, and got so sick from that anxiety. I have had panic attacks before and know how hard it is to get over it. Riley was also interesting. I loved that she had more depth then most best friends of the main character. Drake was the love interest in this book. He seemed to be very interesting. The plot was fairly interesting. I always wanted to go on a trip like Georgia did. The trip was very eye opening and made you feel thankful for the little thing. While not the most interesting book, Kephart is a stunning writing. She makes something so little seem sort of magical. This book reminded me a lot of Red Glass by Laura Resau, which I loved. I highly recommend this book and hope you will check it out. Kephart creates another captivating books with beautiful writing.
