Bonnie is looking for this one! Oh boy this one sounds crazy and angsty and makes me think of a Christine Zolendz book that I loved (Brutally Beautiful – P.S. Here’s my review), but I’m pretty sure that’s not it.
I really hope you can help find this book. I’ve tried every kind of search I can think of.
So the h is from a poor background but was really brilliant so got a scholarship into a prestigious school where she met the H and fell in love with him.
From what I remember, the h was bullied in school. Someone poured water on her on graduation day before she gave a valedictorian speech. Her mum wasn’t at the ceremony because she died that day in an accident.
Fast forward a couple of years later, the H suddenly appears in the h life again.
He has two close friends that he went to high school with. One of them owns a club where the h works part-time. She also runs her dads failing restaurant full time because she’s sick. I think she had an abusive ex as well. And a little sister.
Anyone have a guess?
