Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen-year-old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

Ienjoyed the action and grittiness of Trust by Kylie Scott. There was multiple interesting characters that really added to the story and made it easy for me to get into the story and hold my attention. The development of their relationship was great, I liked that it took them time and wasn’t this instant thing. They developed a real friendship first it grew into something more which I really liked. With the drama being as intense as it was I enjoyed how things were handled, the climax was strong and the resolution was satisfying. Overall I really enjoyed reading Trust by Kylie Scott and felt she did a great job entering the world of young adult.
