By Elana K Arnold
Release Date: June 11, 2013Summary: Ben: Having just graduated from high school, Ben is set to leave Gypsum, Nevada. It's good timing since the gypsum mine that is the lifeblood of the area is closing, shutting the whole town down with it. Ben is lucky: he's headed to San Diego, where he's got a track scholarship at the University of California. But his best friends, Pete and Hog Boy, don't have college to look forward to, so to make them happy, Ben goes with them to check out the hot chick parked on the side of Highway 447.
Lala: She and her Gypsy family earn money by telling fortunes. Some customers choose Tarot cards; others have their palms read. The thousands of people attending the nearby Burning Man festival spend lots of cash--especially as Lala gives uncanny readings. But lately Lala's been questioning whether there might be more to life than her upcoming arranged marriage. And the day she reads Ben's cards is the day that everything changes for her. . . and for him.
I read Sacred by Elana K. Arnold and thought it was a pretty good read, but when I saw she had this one coming out next, I was so intrigued. I'm really interested in Lala's life as a Gyspy and how she deals with falling for Ben (which we all know she will) when she's betrothed to another man her family chose. I haven't ever read a book about a Gypsy before, so I'm excited to see how this one turns out.
