From New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young comes a heartrending new novel about a girl struggling to deal with anger issues while taking care of her younger brother with special needs.

"Anger-management issues."

That's how they classified Savannah Sutton after she stuck a pencil in her ex-boyfriend's hand because he mocked her little brother, Evan, for being disabled. That's why they sent her to Brooks Academy--an alternative high school that's used as a temporary detention center.

The days at Brooks are miserable, but at home, life is far more bleak. Savvy's struggling to take care of her brother since her mom left years ago, and her alcoholic dad can't be bothered. Life with Evan is a constant challenge, but he's also the most important person in the world to Savvy.

Then there's Cameron, a new student at Brooks with issues of his own; a guy from a perfect family that Savvy thought only existed on TV. Cameron seems determined to break through every one of the walls Savvy's built around herself, except if she lets herself trust him, it could make everything she's worked so hard for fall apart in an instant.

And with her aunt seeking custody of her brother and her ex-boyfriend seeking revenge, Savvy's fighting to hold all the pieces together. But she's not sure how much tighter she can be pulled before she breaks completely.

After Savannah stabs her ex boyfriend with a pencil from calling her brother a retard, she’s been labeled as someone with anger management issues and is sent to Brooks academy, a temporary detention centre. Her life at home isn't any better having to deal with her mom leaving without reason, her drunk father and having to take care of her brother Evan. Cameron is the only one who manages to break down some of Savannah's walls that she has been building for years. She tries to keep it together but is anxious that her life is going to be left in pieces.
I loved this book so much that I read it in a couple hours and definitely want to go out and buy it! I felt so drawn into the story because it's full of raw emotions making you wanna keep reading till the very last page to see what silver lining is in store for Savannah's life, whether it's gonna work out or fail. You are always rooting that she will pull through after all that she has been through. Rating 5 out 5 stars.

While the premise of this story is solid and spot-on, there is a LOT of new drama that pops up every few pages--might be a bit inundating for younger readers. This book brings to light great awareness for individuals with disabilities.
