Review: Trust - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

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.

Review: Trust

“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.”

Two teenagers meet under duress as bullets hail during a convenience store robbery. They survived—barely—but two other teenagers did not. Thrust into the roiling wake of something so horrible, one of them decides to quit his illicit dealings, while the other falls into a tailspin of trouble.

Kylie Scott’s mature YA, Trust, shares the story of Edie and John—two young people whose lives were quite different, but who shared an experience that would forever join them in ways others couldn’t understand.

After facing death, seventeen-year-old Edie refuses to stand for the fat jokes, the constant taunting she’s put up with for years. So she leaves private school and enrolls in the local high school, where she runs into the boy that saved her life.

Everyone knows John, his reputation precedes him, both girls and boys vying for his attention or access. But after the incident, John decided to make changes, leaving a dangerous life behind and determined to get things right.

But as Edie’s emotions spin out of control making her act wildly, it’s John who’s there to keep her on track. Their journey is one of healing each other, of understanding the highs and lows left after a night that changed everything.

As feelings step past the boundaries of friendship, however, things unravel in more ways than one, especially when they’re again caught up in the world that almost got them killed.

While definitely a coming-of-age story, Kylie masterfully imbues a sense of edge, realism and grit. I loved how the bad boy and good girl story flipped in some ways, but not cleanly, just cleverly, in ways that made things interesting along the way. Themes of friendship, family, first love, fear and trust emerge in a story skillfully brought to life. With its fast pace, suspense, humor, realism and relatability, Trust is a must-read summer pick for both YA and adult genre readers alike.

“I knew what mattered now. What was life and death. Everything else was just bullshit everyday details.”
