Synopsis from Goodreads: Tegan Everly is quiet. Known around school simply as the girl with the hand, she's usually only her most outspoken self with her friend Neel, and right now they're not exactly talking. When Tegan is ambushed by her mom with a truth she can't face, she flees home in a snowstorm, finding refuge at a forgotten local attraction—the tiny Thomas Edison museum.


She's not alone for long. In walks Mac Durant. Striking, magnetic, a gifted athlete, Mac Durant is the classmate adored by all. Tegan can't stand him. Even his name sounds fake. Except the Mac Durant she thinks she knows isn't the one before her now—this Mac is rattled and asking her for help.


Over one unforgettable night spent consuming antique records and corner-shop provisions, Tegan and Mac cast aside their public personas and family pressures long enough to forge an unexpectedly charged bond and—in the very spot in New Jersey that inspired Edison's boldest creations—totally reinvent themselves. But could Tegan's most shameful secret destroy what they've built?


My Review: I really enjoyed this one. I loved the portrayal of the disability in this book. It isn't often that you see a limb difference as a disability in the book. I felt like the author did a really good job handling that. He put small details about it and how the character felt without making the entire book about that. I enjoyed the developing relationship and the was that progressed though it feels a little like it would appeal more to a younger audience. Overall I really enjoyed it!
