Synopsis

Avery
My scars are mine alone. They’re the validation of my pain.
The anxiety, anger and sadness I bleed.
My dark secret. A grim, ugly truth.
Most of all, they’re the one thing in my life I control.
It’s inevitable that one day I’ll have to reveal them to someone. What I wasn’t expecting was to share them now with him … with Hayden.

Hayden
Girls like Avery are all the same. They’re spoiled, superficial blondes who don’t appreciate mommy and daddy’s wealth.
Plastic shells that are empty on the inside.
Or so I thought … but I was wrong.
Avery’s heart is an abyss of emotions. She feels like no one I’ve ever met, wallowing in her insecurities and anguish yet savoring every exciting moment within her reach. I was blindsided by the immense love she was willing to give once she trusted me, and I was left with no choice but to trust her, too, exposing my own pain and scars.
I hate myself for caving in … for loving her. How do you let go of the one person you let in? How do you say goodbye to the girl who trusted you with her body and soul?
I have to leave Avery, and where I’m going, I can’t take her with me. She’s going to believe I built her up only to tear her down, but what she doesn’t realize is unlike her, I can’t change my destiny. I was born into the Knights Union MC, and it’s where I’ll go to die.

The Scars Keeper Teaser2 (2)

Excerpt

Every few breaths bring with them the sweet aroma of honeysuckle. The plants’ balls of tangled vines huddle on the outskirts of our hideaway, soaked from the brief rain shower that fell moments ago.
As we sit on the tattered bench, our bare toes slide along the aged soil beneath our feet.
Shoulders brushing …
Pinkies touching …
Our crush for one another is unveiling itself beneath the afternoon sun.
Allowing my head to fall against his toned bicep, I savor from his t-shirt the lingering scent of rain. The fabric peppered with droplets of water grazes my cheek, and I breathe in the smell of pine needles that have fallen into his wavy hair from the trees above.
A twig in his hand is drawing a line on the thigh of his blue jeans, the back and forth motion hypnotizing, words needless and serenity endless. Hayden is my link to nature. He is my earth, and I long to be rooted in him.
review

I don’t usually read young adult books, but the synopsis for The Scars Keeper made me curious enough to give it a try. I’m glad I read it! I was drawn into this story from the start and was unable to put it down (except to sleep) until I finished it. It was more than just an angsty high school drama. This story deals with real and serious issues—parental expectations, sexual pressures, abuse, and self harm. I love the way this author navigated through Avery’s and Hayden’s experiences bringing together their raw emotions and strength to better their lives.

Avery is a lost and somewhat broken senior who doesn’t see a way out of her current situation. So she decides to deal with her stress and anxiety through self harm. The author did a fantastic job of expressing the emotions and triggers behind Avery’s actions. She also gave her the perfect hero in Hayden to bring Avery back to herself. He’s sweet, caring, and patient. I love how his main purpose is to help her express herself in a healthy way.

Secondary to that is their romantic relationship. They take their time getting to know each other and finding that unconditional love that they don’t feel with anyone else. Hayden and Avery are from different worlds but seem to be able to look past the stereotypes to find that they are quite similar. Their relationship seems shocking to their peers, but it gives them an opportunity to show others that teenagers, despite class, aren’t so different from each other.
