Netgalley and it really seems like my type of book. It's a novel in verse (I LOVE those) and I really like the concept as well. A good girl falls for a bad boy, only to find that she can't change him and has entered a relationship that is harmful to herself. It comes out on April 8th, which is WAY too long of a wait - I hope I'm accepted for a review copy instead!
You can find the book on Goodreads here.
Goodreads Synopsis: When a good girl falls for a bad boy
She thought she loved him. She thought she could change him. She thought if she just believed in him enough, his cheating and his drugs and his lying would stop, and she'd be his and he'd be hers and they'd love each other forever.
But for Samantha Henderson, X-the boy she will not name-is trouble. He's older, edgier, bohemian . . . and when he starts paying attention to Sam, she can't resist him. Samantha's family and friends try to warn her, but still she stays with him, risking her future and everything that really matters.
As moody and vivid as it is captivating, Dating Down is told in scenes and bursts of poetry that create a story filled with hurt, healing, and hope.
