Just finished this first book of a new #YA series and I really enjoyed it. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy, though, before you start reading because you are going to need them!!! A true emotional roller coaster that will leave you feeling like your heart has been through a blender. Luckily there is enough romance, fantasy, and happiness to balance out the sad parts. A great book that will keep you entertained from the first page to the last. Definitely recommend #SteppingStones by Kacey Vanderkarr, Young Adult Author!

Onnaleigh Moore is part of a plan—and it isn’t hers. When her brother dies in a car accident, Onna is desperate to preserve the tatters of her family. Any hope of finding normalcy vanishes when her mother runs off and her dad turns to booze to numb his pain. Onna’s grief is crippling, but the boy who showed up just when she needed him is helping her cope.
Everett’s presence is comforting, though he knows things—Onna’s name just before they met, where she lives, and sometimes he comments on thoughts she doesn’t say aloud. She pegs him for a stalker, or maybe psychic, but the truth is deadlier than she imagines. As their feelings for one another deepen, Everett confesses a horrifying secret: Onna’s brother is only the beginning of the plan, and some fates are worse than death.
