Can’t Look Away
From the author of SKINNY comes a fabulous and moving new YA novel about love, life and loss
Torrey Grey is famous. At least, on the internet. Her fashion and beauty vlog gets thousands of hits, and people look to her for tips on how to be popular and pretty. But then everything changes. Torrey’s sister is killed in a hit-and-run, and the broken family moves to a small Texas town. Torrey has to start over, wondering if the kids at school recognize her from online. When she meets handsome Luis, whose family owns the local funeral home, he challenges all that Torrey thought she knew about love, life, and loss. Can Torrey learn to grieve for her sister in a private way, even if she still craves the spotlight?
