Nell knows a secret about her perfect, beautiful sister Layla. If she tells, it could blow their world apart.
When Nell and Layla were little, Nell used to call them Nellaya. Because to Nell, there was no difference between where she started and her adored big sister ended. They're a unit; divorce made them rely on each other early on, so when one pulls away, what is the other to do? But now, Nell's a freshman in high school and Layla is changing, secretive. And then Nell discovers why. Layla is involved with one of their teachers. And even though Nell tries to support Layla, to understand that she's happy and in love, Nell struggles with her true feelings: it's wrong, and she must do something about it.
This story is about a relationship between two sister, Nell and Layla. Both are in high school and have always been really close. But then Nell learns a secret about her sister and things start to change. And its a big secret, one she's having a hard time keeping to herself. Honestly, I'm not sure how I'd react in that case. Nell has so much going on in her own life, and being a freshman in high school isn't easy. On top of that, she knows Layla's secret. She seems to handle it fairly well, but most of the book is about this secret, so we don't know too much of what else is going on in her life. Like I said, I don't know what I'd do in this situation. I don't have a sister, but I do have two brothers who I'm very close with, so I can kind of relate.
This story was well written and an interesting novel. I haven't read anything else by Reinhardt, but this was a great first one for me to read! The story line kept me interested and I wanted to find out what happens. I really wish I found out more at the end though! It kind of leaves you hanging! Sometimes I like that, but in this case, I want to know!
