The Lovely Reckless
by Kami Garcia
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia, a gritty contemporary romance full of loss, love and redemption…
Haunted by memories of her boyfriend’s death and her inability to identify the killer, Frankie would do anything to forget the past. She now lives her life by one dangerous rule: nothing matters. After a reckless mistake, Frankie must leave her privileged life in the upper class Heights to enroll at a public high school in the Downs, where fistfights are common before first period and some students drive in illegal street-races at night.
Marco Leone is the best racer there is. Tough and dangerous and entirely captivating, he makes it difficult for Frankie not to feel. But the lengths Marco goes to in order to survive in the Downs threaten to have devastating consequences. When Frankie is confronted with his secret, she must decide if she is willing to let her tragic past determine her future. Can she risk what little she has left to follow her heart?
