We Were Never Here, by Jennifer Gilmore
But as she recovers from her ordeal, she finds that Connor has even darker challenges of his own. And their relationship, far from being a source of happiness for her, becomes nearly as destructive as it is healing.
While the story wraps up nicely, it meandered too much for my tastes, introducing new characters at regular intervals (seemingly simply to give Gilmore something to write about). There's the relationship with Connor, but also a sister, two very different friends, several animal adoptions, and a little dating with another boy on the side. I was hard pressed to figure out the connection between all of this and it never quite comes together.
