    <3 YA for adults

    I was a fan of Kylie's for a few years now when she wrote her adult series - Stage Dive, so of course I added her newest creation to my TBR. Honestly I didn't even read that much into the blurb... I was SOLD! Only after when a friend commented 'I hope you enjoy ya' did I realize that Kylie wrote something different and yet as I was reading it it felt like Kylie through and through. The story had it all soul, heart, humor even if all of it was presented in a ya/na-ish setting. Edie and John are just typical high school teenagers who are thrown together by a tragic incident. Except they are not typical at all because even being young of age what they both go throughout the book an adult would not be able to handle as well. However, thankfully they find each other and understand each other on a completely another level as they both literally survive a convenience store robbery... yep guns and all. Edie as a private school girl has loads of insecurities as do all the teenagers but when the repercussions of the incident change her point of view on things she goes about changing that. Which wowed me to what type of woman Edie will grow up to be if she was so clear minded (although troubled) about how to cope with the aftermath of the robbery. Thankfully, Edie was not alone and had John from the beginning. The child man who didn't have it easy in life but the events of the robbery shake his view of things as well. And once Edie is back in his life he becomes her shadow, her guardian, her sanity... as she becomes same to him in return. Their love story is an epic one in my eyes. I have enjoyed each page of this book either with tears or smiles. This was a different read than what I expect of Kylie but after finishing this I hope she writes more of such connection found in early years. Do not get scared by the YA label. It is written so well and in such mature angle that you do not have to be a teen to enjoy this... or even relate to it. In many instances I kept going 'well I know adults who have recently just learned how to change their perspective in such a profound way' as both Edie and John execute so well. Perhaps those adults are just missing their half to encourage that transition... who knows.

    4.5 stars- Not your average YA romance

    From the start, reading Trust was like slipping into comfy clothes. Miss Scott has a signature writing style that’s relaxed and colloquial without being sloppy or lacking in descriptive detail. That tone worked wonderfully with the Young Adult genre. The dialogue flowed perfectly and represented the youthful characters well, yet it didn’t feel immature. The plot itself was really interesting. The opening sequence set the stage for a variety of conflicts; and I enjoyed seeing both main characters work though the issues the hold-up caused, as well as those more typical for young adults. I immediately liked the no-nonsense honesty of the heroine, Edie. She was sarcastic and witty, yet very vulnerable. Her growth over the course of the book was admirable considering the myriad of obstacles thrown her way over a short period of time. I really liked John as well, and was surprised at how much depth his character showed as the book progressed. I really appreciated the contrasting and similar ways the hold-up affected John and Edie. It was messy and honest in many ways, and Miss Scott let the characters take their time working through the lingering effects. Of course, it wasn’t just the main characters who were wonderful. Miss Scott has a way of creating the perfect cast of secondary characters that further develop the protagonists, creating a group I would be happy to hang around. As for the romance, it wasn’t rushed in the least, which worked perfectly for Twist’s plot and the lead characters. I liked how organic the connection between Edie and John was. Although they were brought together by a momentous, tragic event, the relationship morphed from friendship to more and never felt disingenuous. This speed not only fit Edie’s character given her lack of experience, but it also gave the characters time to mature before jumping into a relationship. Truthfully, I went back and forth about reading this book. On the one hand, I’m a huge fan of Miss Scott, on the other, YA isn’t really my genre of choice. In the end, my intrigue over this plot coupled with the label of “mature YA” won out. I’m so very glad I didn’t let a genre label deter me this time. Trust was a phenomenal story I think all readers can enjoy, whether they are fans of the YA genre or not. *I received an eARC via Netgalley.

    Fantastic!

    Wow! I was not expecting to be pulled into this story so quickly. From the first page, I was hooked! Edie and John were fantastic characters! This was an emotional YA story but it still had some of Kylie Scott's signature humor. I loved every page of this book and I hope this author writes more YA in the future!

    Beautiful, heart-warming, gripping and emotional.

    Loved it! Beautiful, heart-warming, gripping and emotional. Ms Scott handles this sensitive subject brilliantly with compassion and depth but without it being too dark. I thoroughly enjoyed every page and my heart was put through all the emotions as I became deeply involved in John and Edie's lives. Trust is about experiencing life’s firsts, about picking up the pieces and learning to live again. It is suitable for readers over 16 years

    Excellent coming of age story

    Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head. After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen-year-old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers. While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future. An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated. Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other. So a couple of thoughts on this book....For Kylie's first attempt at a YA novel it was pretty darn good!! I would definitely read a young adult book that she wrote again...It was different and eclectic, and I really loved that. John was everything you want in a bad boy, but yet he wasn't that at all. He's your quintessential hero in this book. I found myself being drawn to him and his story. What makes him tick and how he pushes Edie away to protect her from himself is just a good guy thing to do. Edie is every girl that's ever had any problem in high school. For me...it was that I was overweight - so I could totally relate to her. I could project myself into the heroine's part of the story and relive this in my mind and it made this story soooo much better! The story begins with Edie going to this gas station to load up on a bunch of carbs....no seriously that's what she's doing! While she's getting ready to go - it just all goes to crap in the space of 5 minutes. What would you do? How would you react if you watched someone shot right in front of you? What would you do if someone held a gun to your head? You think you know what you would do, but do you really? All these are things that a teenager shouldn't have to deal with or answer and yet John and Edie have to. In this situation, an unlikely relationship form and a love unlike any other becomes something that no one anticipates. I think that this is probably going to be one of the BEST books of the summer for young adults and adults alike because it's way different than that of anything else I've read this year. In a world of books full of tropes, Kylie didn't pick a trope...she picked a diamond in the rough and I think this is going to shine brilliantly. I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on NetGalley for an honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's.
