The Year We Hid Away

The Year We Hid Away (The Ivy Years #2) 

This is the second book in the ivy years and yet again it can be read as a standalone however like most things it's better to start from the beginning just because you meet the characters.
Again I loved this book. Two ice hockey lovers avoiding hockey, how does she do it. This book is all about scandal. It was juicy and gripping. I couldn't put it down. 

Shannon's dad is accused of an unforgivable crime and she is struggling to escape the drama. She is being pulled down just because she is related. She doesn't know anything and she didn't do anything. Her high school friends no longer talk to her and she ends up spending her free time alone. She decides the best solution is to give up her love for hockey and become someone else.
Bridger loves his little sister and sees his mother becoming less able to cope everyday. He doesn't want his sister to live through the drama. He decides to help her by letting her come stay with him but the less than perfect circumstances means they are living in a one bedroom in the dorms. He has to keep her quiet but the alternative of taking her back to her mother is not an option.
He meets Scarlet aka Shannon during a few of his classes and for those few hours they can both escape their crumbling life's.
