Two broken hearts.
One night to set each other free.
Almost dying from an undiagnosed heart condition means every second of your life is a precious gift to be guarded.
Lena Pettitt was born a miracle.
And her parents never let her forget it.
Even if that daily reminder kept her from experiencing the one thing they were trying to protect most–her life.
Gabriel Martinez’s heart has been ripped out.
His pride has been stomped on.
Oh, and he now has an arrest record that’s caused an even bigger rift between him and his DA mother. All for a love that wasn’t really true.
Now he’s exiled to his grandmother’s, working on his late grandpa’s old Corvair when a shivering girl knocks on the garage door. Lena, left alone for the first time ever, has locked herself out of her house–in the snow. Gabe knows he could help this girl get back inside her house–but that may mean missing the next train to Boston to pick up the part he’s spent eight weeks tracking down. She can wait for him at his grandmother’s or…
A few hours, an aluminum valve cover, and some strong coffee later, neither Gabe or Lena can feign disappointment when they race to the station and arrive just as the last train home from Boston is pulling out.
As jaded as he is, Gabe can’t deny the fact that he’s excited to spend the night exploring a city he knows nearly every corner of, with a girl who sees magic in the simplest things.
Lena has been waiting for her tiny world to crack open her entire life. Now that it’s finally happened, she finds the only thing she can focus on is the unexpected tour guide who opens her eyes to possibilities she never imagined.
All they have is this one night, together, under the bright moon in a city full of hidden beauty.
It’s one night that will change how they see the world and the paths their hearts will take forever.
When I finished Even the Moon Has Scars I had a HUGE smile on my face. Yet another one of Steph’s YA books that left me smiling, and just happy overall. Her books are consistent feel good books for me and if you’re looking for quality YA, I truly can’t recommend her enough. Even the Moon Has Scars was a sweet read about two teenagers, trying to find their way and discovering that there’s more to themselves, and each other, while stranded overnight in Boston. I loved the realness factor to Gabe and Lena; Steph always manages to create characters that are lovable, yet slightly damaged. Gabe and Lena’s story makes me happy sigh. I would love to see more of them…maybe we can fast forward and see what they’re up to, say a year of two from now *hint hint* all I know is, if you’re in the mood for a sweet, fast paced YA, just one-click this one. Steph won’t disappoint, two years later and I still jump to one-click her new releases.
