(The second book in the Mission of the Heart series)
A novel by Vanessa Gray Bartal
After a difficult year at a Bolivian boarding school, Jillian is sure her senior year of high school will be her best, especially with her boyfriend, Quinn, by her side. Even the loss of her coveted cheerleading position can't bring her down. But when Quinn's adjustment to America isn't all that she dreamed, life begins to fall apart. Soon Jillian's once-perfect world is in shambles with her parents MIA, her sister's killer up for parole, and Quinn retreating to old ways of causing her pain. For Jillian, whose faith has always been unshakeable, the pain and confusion will test her to the breaking point. But in a life or death struggle, is the only way to remain whole to be broken? Soon Jillian will have to decide if living what she believes is worth giving up everything she holds dear.
