In seventeen-year-old Hannah Dresher’s world, every dollar counts.

When Hannah comes home to find that her alcoholic mom is wasted, she’s not surprised. But when she discovers that her younger brother, Seth, has disappeared with the overdue rent money, she worries they’ll be evicted or taken away by social services. Hannah knows she can’t rely on anyone but herself, so she has no choice but to chase down her brother. During her search she meets charming Eli, who offers to help her. But can Hannah set aside her pride and learn to trust him?

The epub edition of this title is fully accessible.
