Rob had it all - friends, a near-guaranteed lacrosse scholarship to college and an amazing family - but all that changed when his dad was caught embezzling funds from half the town. Now he's a social pariah.

I give it - 5/5
My review - I just adore Brigid's books and this one has to be my favourite. It was adorable but full of moments that just made you want to wrap up these characters and make sure they where okay. These characters have a lot going on in their lives and meeting each other changes things for each other.
It has been a strange few months for Rob and Meagan.
Rob, was king of the school. Popular, amazing at lacrosse and living the best life but, his father is done for embezzlement and suddenly his perfect life comes crashing down around him. Everyone treats him like scum and believes he always knew what his father was up too.
Meagan has always done the right thing. She has always kept her head down and studied hard but, with her sister getting a scholarship and the pressure of school she does something drastic. Now, a few months later the heat has been taken off her as her sister came home from college pregnant.
At school Rob and Meagan have been paired up for a project. Both aren't happy about it but for different reasons but, both need the grade and decide to work together. As time passes each of them learn something new about the other and before they know it there are feelings. Meagan hanging out with Rob has people talking. At first she double guesses herself on it all but at the end you shouldn't care what other people think and she starts to realises that. Rob's life is complicated but, hanging out and being with Meagan makes him smile again.
Secrets are kept, what will happen when the truth is told?
This book was wonderful and full of an amazing set of characters. Rob is dealing with a lot and trying to keep his head above water. He just wants to get on with school and forget about the past. But, it's hard when your ex-friends are constantly throwing digs towards him and what his father did to half the town. Rob feels like because of his father he needs to help the people who his father wronged and that means he might do some things he will regret just to help those who need it.
Meagan and her sister usually fight but at this time Meagan is all her sister has. The father wants nothing to do with the baby and being the children of the towns cop means keeping it on the down low so no one can know about her sister's pregnancy while the figure out what's going to happen. Meagan did something bad at the end of the school year and still feels bad about it now as she tries her hardest at being perfect and doing what's right but, meeting Rob changes that for her and hanging out with him she starts to let go a little.
Also, my favourite character was Owen. He was adorable and just so lovely and I need a book about him asap.
I really enjoyed these characters, their story and the character development! Brigid has written a fantastic book here and I just adored every second of it!
