Beauty is alluring; it can disguise the ugliness beneath. But scarred beauty is
even more potent to a girl who vowed never to let her heart be broken again. It
was an easy vow for Candy to keep until she met Jonah, an arrogant boy with a
face that would be too perfect if not for the scar that marred the skin beside
That imperfect boy earned her trust and won her heart, but the ties that bind
people together are fragile, especially when lies are told. Trust is also
fragile, and once broken, doesn’t heal like a heart. Trust has to be earned
again, and Jonah desperately wants Candy’s trust back.
But Candy has more than Jonah to worry about. Her father is in trouble, and she
intends to help him whether he likes it or not. People tell her he’s a bad man,
and that may be true, but he’s not all bad. Deep down, she understands his
brand of badness because she’s so much like him.
When Candy finally learns the truth, she’ll have to grow up fast, let go of old
grievances, and realize that being vulnerable doesn’t make her weak. In fact,
opening herself up may be the very thing that makes her whole again.
