Synopsis for ‘TRUST’:
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.
My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘TRUST’:
“Trust” is the latest novel from Best-selling author Kylie Scott. This story kicks off from the first chapter and stays compelling and entertaining all the way through. This novel definitely touches on a few heavy topics but it delivers in an engaging way. “Trust” is written from the one of the main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of view), Edie Millen.
Edie Millen was having a fun sleepover with her best friend Georgia. They decided to go to the nearby corner store to grab a few snacks dressed in their pajamas. Edie went in alone while Georgia waited in the car. The quick visit the store would turn into a dangerous night for her when someone decides to rob it. She can’t help but fear for her life as she comes to the realization that this may be the end. What she didn’t expect, was that the two other guys in the store with her would risk their lives to try and save them all.
With her outlook on life completely altered, feeling hurt by a decision her best friend Georgia made, Edie makes a decision. She wants to leave her high price private school behind and attend a local public school. Edie finds it hard to care about the things that used to bother her challenge her, like bullies and following the rules. She begins an unlikely bond and friendship with John, the guy who did his best to keep her safe during the store robbery.
John is popular and known around his high school as the go-to-guy for all the wrong things. When his life changes after the robbery and because of his older brother, John decides to do better. He cleans up his act and tries hard to do better in school. Unfortunately, he’s already earned a reputation among his peers and the staff at school. They give him a hard time now that he’s trying to change his life. Edie is in the picture now and she may be just the person to either help his change or add to his problems.
As John and Edie grow a strong bond and a genuine friendship, how will the robbery they experienced together, affect their lives? When Edie comes to John to ask him for a huge favor that could change things, will John see it through or turn her down? Can John save himself and Edie again when they find themselves in a another dangerous situation? “Trust” is a dangerously enthralling story. You’ll find yourself pulled into the lives of the characters, John and Edie, and experience their firsts in a way that will keep your interest and entertain in such a staggering way. I highly recommend this riveting read and the amazing way it touches on heavy topics. If you’re looking for your next read, this one is definitely worth it! ❤
