Private school politics and one of the best high school football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls. Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trump all. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us for years.

The Hard Count is my favorite book of 2016, so far. I have said it before, and I will continue to shout it from the rooftops: The respect and love Ginger Scott writes her YA characters is exactly why I adore her. No matter how much I know I love her style, no matter how often she leaves me breathless (and speechless), I am never prepared for the impact of her words.
Nico Medina and Reagan Prescott are prime examples of the tenderness and honestly Scott writes with. These characters are so well written, given such depth, and so easy to relate to, I fell in absolute love with them and their journey. The story of the coach’s daughter and the boy from the wrong side of town is a timeless tale, but THC is NOT a typical, expected re-telling. Instead it’s am honest look at the pressures faced by a vast assortment of people. Real people. People you could be friends with and love like family.
Another aspect of Nico and Reagan that I loved was their strength. They were both smart, both driven, and both willing to fight for those they love. How can you not fall in love with characters like that?!
