What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?

Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.

Left Drowning by Jessica Park has been released for a year already and I've just finished it. A touching story that will make you believe in love, hope and second chances.

This was a great story about a girl, who after losing her parents believes there is nothing left for her until she meets a boy and his family who makes her feel alive again. After spending a lot of time together and opening up to love, Blythe and Chris discover there is more to their connection than a chance encounter. 
Both Blythe and Chris have had tragic, troublesome pasts that have helped them to grow and discover that their lives are intertwined for a reason. 

After reading Flat-Out Love, Jessica Park has been on my radar and I love reading what she comes up with next.
