A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

  • Anna Banks is a new to me author. A friend recommended her previous books to me and this one sounds like one that I would love to read.
  • These are characters that I want to get to know. On the surface, they seem completely different, but digging deeper, they probably have more in common than they think.
  • I want to know about the midnight pranks that got them in trouble - a bet they had some fun!
  • It's a stand-alone and I'm plan to read more of those. 

What are you waiting on this week?
