Pretty and popular, Eva Coonan has everything to look forward to – that is until her dad dies suddenly and her whole world falls apart. Just as Eva starts to wonder if she will every feel normal again, Killian – the good-looking rugby winger – catches her eye. But she soon realises that all is not what it seems and that the only person she can really talk to is Zac, who somehow always seems to know the right thing to say. But cute, scruffy, guitar-mad Zac has his own problems. Not only has he to deal with being ‘the new guy’ at school, but his father is a total bully and he is fast running out of ways to protect his mother. As things heat up, choices have to be made. Eva learns that the right thing to do can often be the hardest – and that true love will always wait.

Owes much to Judy Blume... but while Blume produced hers as an adult, Ruth Gilligan at 18 is still a teen herself. Arguably this results in a greater understanding of her young characters...
