Leaving Paradise

One year ago, Maggie and Caleb - neighbors who grew up together and always hungout with one another - found their lives upside down. Maggie was a victim in a hit and run incident. Caleb was the driver. For one year, Caleb went to juvenile detention and Maggie went to physical therapy and surgeries to try and get her leg better.

Maggie hated Caleb for what he had done. She loved him before the accident, but now she was ready to leave Paradise, her hometown, to escape being around him. Caleb was able to get out of the Illinois Department of Corrections-Juvenile (DOC) 6 months early, ruining Maggie's plan to escape to Spain so she could avoid him.

Now, the two are stuck together reliving that awful day a year ago, but also finding themselves in the same place trying to survive until the end of the school year. However, they are starting to connect with one another, knowing how much the other is an outcast at school and in society. The person that they hate the most might actually be the only person that can remotely understand what the other is going through during this time.

This was an amazing book and I'm very glad that I don't have to wait for the sequel and conclusion of this series Return to Paradise because the suspense would have been too much! I'm going to go start that book right now!
