Splendor

(2013)
(The second book in the Sacred series)
A novel by

 
Splendor, the stunning sequel to Sacred, is a story about changing friendships, family, romance, passion, the study of Kabbalah, and self-discovery.

Sometimes the answers we seek aren't ours to find. . . .

Scarlett loves her boyfriend, the dashing, mysterious Will Cohen. But now he's gone east for college, and Scarlett is stuck home on Catalina Island. Senior year should be a breeze, but between dealing with her parents' separation and her wild best friend, Lily, things are off to a rocky start. And then there's Gunner. Dangerous, dark, ferociously attractive Gunner. Lily's potential boyfriend, Gunner . . .
Scarlett distracts herself by spending time with her horse and delving into ecstatic mysticism, a way to practice Kabbalah. Through this practice, she hopes to learn to control her emotions, and begin to make sense of her place in the world. But Scarlett's world is increasingly unrecognizable.
Are Lily and Scarlett becoming too different to stay friends? Is Will still the love of Scarlett's life, even though she has feelings for Gunner? Does being in love mean only being attracted to one person? The more Scarlett questions, the fewer answers there seem to be.

Praise for Splendor:

"As in Arnold's earlier Sacred, teens will gravitate toward Scarlett and her problems. Arnold has painted a very realistic picture of teenage girls and their conflicting emotions. . . . Fans of the first novel will appreciate continuing Scarlett's story and finding some closure with this sequel. Readers unfamiliar with Sacred will still be able to enjoy Splendor." - VOYA

Praise for Sacred:

"Will appeal to many teens, especially fans of the Twilight series."--Booklist

"Filled with tension and angst. . . . Readers will be looking for the next installment."--School Library Journal

"A poignant novel of loss and grief, but also of hope."--VOYA
