Description

From the author of Bleed Like Me, which Booklist called "edgy, dark, and turbulent with passion" comes a "gritty, honest portrayal of the road to recovery" (VOYA) and forbidden romance--starring a fearless, unforgettable heroine. Natalie's not an alcoholic. She doesn't have a problem. Everybody parties, everybody does stupid things, like getting in their car when they can barely see. Still, with six months of court-ordered AA meetings required, her days of vodka-filled water bottles are over. Unfortunately, her old friends want the party girl or nothing. Even her up-for-anything ex seems more interested in rehashing the past than actually helping Nat stay sober. But then a recovering alcoholic named Joe inserts himself into Nat's life, and things start looking up. Joe is funny, he's smart, and he calls her out in a way no one ever has. He's also older. A lot older. Nat's connection to Joe is overwhelming, but so are her attempts to fit back into her old world, all while battling the constant urge to crack a open bottle and erase that one thing she's been desperate to forget. Now, in order to make a different kind of life, Nat must pull together her broken parts and learn to fight for herself.

Review quote

"With edges sharper than a fragment of a vodka bottle, C. Desir reveals how far some of us go to run from the sorrows that have broken us, and how much it hurts to find a way to put the shards of ourselves back together again. Desir is hip to the truth that the broken edges let the light shine through. This book is a blinding beauty."--Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and Death
