Description-

  • In this “invaluable addition to any collection” (School Library Journal, starred review) high school senior Zephyr Doyle is swept off her feet—and into an intense and volatile relationship—by the new boy in school.
    His obsession.
    Her fall.

    Zephyr Doyle is focused. Focused on leading her team to the field hockey state championship and leaving her small town for her dream school, Boston College.

    But love has a way of changing things.

    Enter the new boy in school: the hockey team’s starting goaltender, Alec. He’s cute, charming, and most important, Alec doesn’t judge Zephyr. He understands her fears and insecurities—he even shares them. Soon, their relationship becomes something bigger than Zephyr, something she can’t control, something she doesn’t want to control.

    Zephyr swears it must be love. Because love is powerful, and overwhelming, and…terrifying?

    But love shouldn’t make you abandon your dreams, or push your friends away. And love shouldn’t make you feel guilty—or worse, ashamed.

    So when Zephyr finally begins to see Alec for who he really is, she knows it’s time to take back control of her life.

    If she waits any longer, it may be too late.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    December 21, 2015
    High school senior Zephyr Doyle is a field hockey star, whose longtime best friend, Gregg, “the best ice hockey player in the history of our school,” now admits he loves her. Zephyr’s world is further upended by the arrival of new student Alec, whom she instantly falls for. Things happen fast, and soon Alec is demanding that Zephyr abandon her friends and even her college plans to follow him to Michigan, where he has a hockey scholarship. Debut author Parker examines both the seductiveness of feeling wanted and the danger of romantic obsession as Alec systematically threatens Zephyr’s world and everyone in it (including her dog) in a misguided effort to draw her closer and assert his dominance. Parker writes confidently and elegantly, but the novel’s structure—from a horror-movie-esque prologue to an 11th-hour showdown, with increasingly violent episodes in between—can create the sense that the subject of abusive relationships is being used more for action and drama than complex consideration. Ages 16–up. Agent: Melissa Sarver White, Folio Literary Management.
