Jesse Lachlin is cursed. So the town folklore says, but the only curse Jesse believes is his grandmother's will: In order to inherit his family farm he must win the approval of his childhood best friend, the girl he froze out of his freshman year, Scarlett Copeland. Scarlett Copeland is psychic. Glory Gardner tells Scarlett she has hidden psychic abilities, but Scarlett thinks Glory is delusional. What is real is Scarlett's father's irrational fears, controlling attitude, and the dark secrets at home. But to escape, Scarlett will need the one person she used to trust, the same boy who broke her heart, Jesse Lachlin.

This was so beautifully written it felt like I was reading poetry. You get so attached to the two main characters because they have gone through so much and seen horrible things that no one should ever have to see. Their character development and the development of their relationship took a while but in the end it was worth it. One thing I loved was the minor characters like Marshall, Glory, and Pastor Hughes. I did not even notice until halfway into the book that they were there to help Jesse and Scarlett move forward and I loved them for that. This is the first book I have read by Katie McGarry and I look forward to reading more of her work.

“You’ve been asleep for a very long time,” she whispers. “It’s time to wake up, Scarlett. There’s a whole world of possibility waiting for you.”
