When Grace asks Sawyer to help her with a simple plan, one that will get Grace to her goal of stardom, how can Sawyer say no? At first it is just to steal a simple document for a fake event but quickly turns into much bigger things. Things like priceless paintings. But Sawyer cannot say no to Grace. Not when she knows where she is going. Sawyer has no plans of his own so if Grace decides to take him with her he might as well go along for the ride. But what will he do when Grace has gone too far and fallen?
I really enjoyed reading this book, it's a twisting story that hooked me from moment one. I devoured the story of this boy who, so like me, seems to go with everyone else's plan for him. I loved where this story twists and Grace gets everything she's ever wanted but Sawyer ends up with what everyone else has decided he wants. An aw some story of decision making for what you want and what happens when you don't fight for what you want.
