Yesterday we posted about Ginger Scott’s new book The Hard Count. (Be sure to check out the giveaway hosted by Wordsmith Publicity!!)
We were fortunate enough to get an advanced reader copy of the book and I could NOT put it down! This book had me guessing until the very end. Nico is not your typical “bad boy from the wrong side of town” and Reagan is not your typical YA protagonist. There were some sports parts that I didn’t fully understand but Ginger did a good job of explaining it to the “non sporty” people like me. I enjoyed this book very much and I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. Got get a copy today!!!

Nico Medina’s world is eleven miles away from mine. During the day, it’s a place where doors are open—where homes are lived in, and neighbors love. But when the sun sets, it becomes a place where young boys are afraid, where eyes watch from idling cars that hide in the shadows and wicked smoke flows from pipes.
West End is the kind of place that people survive. It buries them—one at a time, one way or another. And when Nico was a little boy, his mom always told him to run.
I’m Reagan Prescott—coach’s daughter, sister to the prodigal son, daughter in the perfect family.
Life on top.
My world is the ugly one. Private school politics and one of the best high school football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls. Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trump all. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us for years.
In our twisted world, a boy from West End is the only shining light.
I hated him before I needed him.
I fell for him fast.
I loved him when it was almost too late.
When two ugly worlds collide, even the strongest fall. But my world…it hasn’t met the boy from West End.
