After Maddie is released from rehab the setting takes place in her hometown in places such as Evergreen High School and local stores around the area. I recommend this book to an understanding and love oriented person who has gone through or known someone to go through rehab. Madeline is having to start her junior year of high school in rehab. She was doing everything you could possibly think of from alcohol to drugs of all sorts. She partied all of the time, and was arrested constantly. Due to her drug problems, she began to have very violent anger problems, which made her parents send her straight to Spring Meadows Rehab on Recovery Road. There, she meets Trish who becomes her one and only friend, until Trish is released. Stewart, this shy, laid back, very calm person gets through his first period of rehab, meets Madeline on their Tuesday movie day. They talk a little bit, and eventually become lovers. After Maddie is released, she begins immediately to take care of Trish and keep her on the right track, while waiting for Stewart's release a month later. Maddie who is in love with Stewart plans on blowing off school and being with him, but is shocked when she realizes that is not exactly what Stewart wants. After Trish's horrifying death, she begins to focus on school and working her way towards being able to go to college. Until one day, Stewart out of surprise comes and asks Maddie to come live with him in a shack behind his dads place. When she denies her life practically turns for the worst. Her ex boyfriend moves back to Palestine with his new girlfriend Kirsten, he gets back with the wrong crowd. Maddie who obviously still has feelings for Stewart finds him with her old party friends wasted, and trys to take him back to rehab. When he refuses, she eventually gives up on finding him, and starts going back to the movies each tuesday hoping her lost lover will come and join her. Quote The lust is gone and now i just hold his arm and - when nobody's looking - lean against him and rest my head against his shoulder.
