Summary

If seventeen-year-old Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage months of summer. Skylar can taste the freedom--that is, until her mother loses her job and everything starts coming apart. Torn between her dreams and the people she loves, Skylar realizes everything she's everworked for is on the line.
Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be.
What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise--a quirky motel off California's dusty Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and soon, something deeper.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Skylar's postgraduation plans are pretty much set in stone: trading in a life in the trailer she shares with her mom in Creek View, where she has spent all of her 18 years, to study art in San Francisco. But when her old coworker Josh, a U.S. Marine, returns from Afghanistan minus not only his leg but also his party-boy ways, Skylar's crystal clear view of the future starts to blur. Over the summer, Skylar grows unexpectedly closer to Josh. She thinks she might even love him, and when her mother loses her job, her future only gets more complicated. Can she really leave behind this place and the people who need her? Demetrios explores a complicated web of issues surrounding her intelligent protagonist in a summer full of changes, and she breathes life into fictional Creek View by populating the novel with eccentric yet familiar characters, from Skylar's closest friends to her boss Marge to Josh's unrelenting flirt of a brother. Demetrios smartly interweaves brief splices of narrative from Josh's point of view, providing a necessary counterpoint that effectively buoys the romance and expands the reader's understanding of Josh's experience in Afghanistan. Part coming-of-age, part romance, and part war story, Demetrios' latest is remarkable.--Barnes, Jennifer Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "After receiving a full scholarship to a San Francisco college, budding artist Skylar thinks she's won a ticket out of Creek View, Calif., a town consisting of "a trailer park, a few run-down houses, a couple of business that barely made enough to keep their doors open, and the Paradise Motel," where she works part-time. Standing on the threshold of a promising future, Skylar confronts forces holding her back: she's worried about leaving her mother, who has lost her job and started drinking again, and she's also drawn to Josh, a Marine who has returned to Creek View physically and emotionally damaged. Demetrios (Exquisite Captive) paints a vivid portrait of a teen overburdened with responsibility and confused by conflicting passions. Skylar's thoughts, interspersed with Josh's memories of war and his uncertainties about his future, dramatically convey how the two come together before being pulled apart by fear. If the ups and downs of their romance are slightly drawn out, the striking details of small-town life and well-developed supporting characters will keep readers engaged. Ages 14-up.
