Cornerstone by Misty Provencher 5/5 star review
From the back cover:
Seventeen-year-old Nalena Maxwell, known as The Waste at her school, has received a sign to join an ancient community. She'd know that, if it wasn't the wrong dang sign. But Garrett Reese, one of the school's most popular athletes and a boy with eyes as clean as Jesus, knows exactly what Nalena is and he knows about all the family skeletons that are about to come crashing into her life...
Cornerstone is the best YA novel I have read in a long time. Every character in Cornerstone has a unique voice, which is a difficult task to accomplish. All of the characters really come alive, and the relationships between the characters give this novel something very special. I loved everything about Cornerstone. The story was fascinating and had just the right amount of action, romance, and just plain fun. It made me laugh, and it made me cry. I could not ask for more in a novel than that. I am now a Misty Provencher fan and am looking forward to reading more of her novels.
