Leaving Paradise

Author: Simone Elkeles

Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad, her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares, has been canceled. After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb's free . . .if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers. Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeonholed as criminal and freak. Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It's a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.


"Maggie and Caleb are complex and authentic teens all readers will embrace and care about. Theirs is a delicate, delicious love story--without the happy ending."
