Stay by Deb Caletti

“…an untold story has a weight that can submerge you, sure as a sunken ship at the bottom of the ocean. I learned that. This kind of story, those kind of things kept secret–they have the power to keep you hidden forever, and most of all from yourself.”

Clara is spending the summer with her father in Bishop’s Rock, while all her friends think she’s traveling in Europe. The lie is necessary, as protection from Clara’s ex-boyfriend, Christian.

While trying to be normal by meeting people and getting a summer job Clara always has a worry at the back of her mind…how long will she have to hide and what happens if Christian finds her?

Deb Caletti has written a powerful story of one girl’s struggle to reclaim her life.
