To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

This book is moving and full of a lifetime of moral values. 

It’s bound to happen that the popular, cocky, quarterback guy is going to fall for the new, mute girl. Yes, the amount of clichè in this story is a mountain full of it. But the author adds a few twists from different aspects which makes it a whole lot better. 

I hate to say this but the two main characters kept on talking about death and how the other deal with it. Like it is literally in every chapter. I know that they’re dealing with it a lot but this is just my opinion though. 

However the clichèness in this story, I adore it. It’s heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time. And I can’t wait to read the next Field Party’s Novel.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of reviews for this lately. Some good (like yours), others not so good. I’ve never read an Abbi Glines before, but a lot of people seem to like her. Maybe I’ll give this a go…
