The New York Times bestselling author of Counting By 7s, Holly Goldberg Sloan, crafts a powerful drama that follows up her debut young adult novel, I'll Be There. Emily Bell has it all-or so she thinks. She's in love with a boy named Sam, and this summer is destined to be the best they've ever known. No one suspects that Sam's violent father, who blames the Bell family for his incarceration, is planning a jailbreak. Meanwhile, Sam and Emily's idyllic romance is under fire from a charismatic new girl in town, and Emily begins to question the loyalty of the person she thought she could trust most. But when true danger comes knocking, her only hope for survival may be from the most unexpected place. Called "immensely satisfying, heartfelt, and lyrical" by SLJ, this riveting story of friends and enemies-and how those roles can shift in a matter of moments-is now available in paperback.

"Teens Sam and Emily found each other in I'LL BE THERE. Now, Laura Jennings's deliberately paced narration highlights their deep emotions as their blossoming relationship is threatened. Jennings's quiet, even delivery suits the serious teenagers who are desperate to hold on to each other even as a new, quirky girl looks to capture Sam's attention. Jennings's gruff timbre and somber tone are well suited to many of the characters and the tension that arises as Emily is kidnapped. Through the climax, Jennings's pace never wavers, allowing profound emotions like fear and desperation to shine without being overshadowed by melodramatics. Listeners will find themselves absorbed by this compelling novel, and though the experience would be heightened by listening to the first one, it's not necessary.
