Broken Hill High by Sheridan Anne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars.
Very good, reminds me a bit of Fallen Crest High.
The story of a girl and two brothers, one who she loves and the other who treats her like family. The premise is very similar to Fallen Crest, which I totally loved, and this book was also very good. Tora knew Nate and Jesse very well when they were young because their parents were good friends.
“You let me know if there’s anything you need,” Jesse saysi in a sleazy tone. “I’ll be more than happy to lend you a hand. Hell, I could lend you my bed if you want.”
“Ugh,” I groan as I push his arm off my shoulder. “Do you forget that I was there for your whole ‘shitting your pants’ phase?”
However, when Nate and Tora turned twelve something happened and they stopped hanging out together. Nate and Jesse and their friends became the school’s bad boys. Nate became Tora’s bully and Tora had her own group of friends that she hung out with.
Until senior year when her parents have to go away to Australia to take care of her sick Granny. They ask that she stay with Nate and Jesse’s Family. Tora is forced to spend time with Nate. Though he has a girlfriend and she has been spending time with the Quarterback, they are both drawn to each other. There are unexpected twists and turns and fun high school parties where craziness happens. It is young love at its best. It is also pretty funny.
Brooke – So chilled right now! I’ve been masturbating all afternoon. You should try it one of these days.
I gawk down at my phone. She couldn’t possibly mean that…. Right?
Tora – Ummmmm???? What?!
Brooke – God damn it! Stupid autocorrect. I mean menstruating! Brooke – NO! Menstruating!
Tora – Ahhhhhh…. This doesn’t make it any less awkward!
Brooke – FML!!!! M E D I T A T I N G. I’ve been meditating!
