This is book 2 in the Wide Awake series, see our review of Wide Awake, Here
If you have read Wide Awake, you will realize fast that Milo is not like his brother, Mason. Milo has a lot of demons following him that haunt him at just about every turn. Drug dealers he had managed to out run catch up to him and leave him in a hospital bed, but as soon as he gets back on his feet, he leaves town, changes his name and doesn't look back.
The new town puts Milo in the hands of a preacher and his daughter, Joey, who fight to get him sober and make him into the hard working guy that he ends up. Joey is Milo's sponsor of sorts and she ended up really making me want to smack her later on when she went from being a best friend to being self centered and not as caring of a person.
Then there is Maya! Maya has had many things in her life go wrong, and is also a recovering drug addict. That common link brings Maya and Milo together and you really do root for them. Both of them are guarded and stubborn and Milo promises to chase her, and he does. When tragedy happens, Milo is there for Maya and Maya is there for him when he has to face the demons of his past and find the family he let go before.
You get to see Mason and Emma and their family too!
