Book Talk & Giveaway: The Opposite of Innocent by Sonya Sones

36099120Poignant and chilling by turns, The Opposite of Innocent is award-winning author Sonya Sones’s most gripping novel in verse yet. It’s the story of a girl named Lily, who’s been crushing on a man named Luke, a friend of her parents, ever since she can remember.

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?

In this powerful tale of a terrifying leap into young adulthood, readers will accompany Lily on her harrowing journey from hopelessness to hope.

  1. Love your book trailer! I enjoy reading books in verse and am excited about this one too.

    1. Thank you! Harper made that for DARKNESS and I thought it was pretty cool. Books in verse are awesome – best of luck!

  2. I’m a ridiculously huge fan of Sonya Sones! (She knows this as we live in the same city, and I routinely fan-girl-gush over her whenever we run into each other.) I’ve read all her books and CANNOT wait for this one!
