I’ll Meet You There

Written by Heather Demetrios

Skylar longs to move out of her family’s mobile home in Creek View and go to art school in San Francisco. When her mother loses her job at Taco Bell, she starts to feel like her dreams are slipping away. Working at a quirky motel, she attempts to escape her reality through paper collages. She soon meets Josh, her fellow co-worker and ex-marine who lost his leg after stepping on an IUD in Afghanistan. Still coping with being disabled, Josh resorts to whiskey and random hookups. As the two get to know each other, Skylar finds her perspective changing and her attraction to Josh growing. Will Skylar choose to stay in the small town? Will Josh and Skylar help each other to heal and find love?

Accurate in description and detail, this book pulls the reader into Josh and Skylar’s world with believable plots, well-developed characters, and thought-provoking approaches to issues. There are a lot of swears, but they work well with the book. There is alcohol, drugs, and sexual content, so this book is best suited for high school and higher.
