Luke has been away for two endless years, but he’s finally returning today. Lily was only twelve when he left. But now, at fourteen, she feels transformed. She can’t wait to see how Luke will react when he sees the new her. And when her mother tells her that Luke will be staying with them for a while, in the bedroom right next to hers, her heart nearly stops.

Having Luke back is better than Lily could have ever dreamed. His lingering looks set Lily on fire. Is she just imagining them? But then, when they’re alone, he kisses her. Then he kisses her again. Lily’s friends think anyone his age who wants to be with a fourteen-year-old must be really messed up. Maybe even dangerous. But Luke would never do anything to hurt her...would he?

This book
Left me speechless.

The Opposite of Innocent
is a story that you can't
put down but at times you
wish that you could.

Lily is a well-written teenage girl.
She has her friends, her hobbies,
and of course
her crush.
I enjoyed her point of view.

There are definitely scenes that
are uncomfortable, cringe-worthy,
and mature.

There are scenes that a real,
and raw,
and relatable.

Page 253 was sickening,
unbelievable, and the reason
why this book is five stars.

The Opposite of Innocent is a
book I can't believe I read but
am glad that I did.
