"I need you to steal something for me."
Grace always has a plan. There's her plan to get famous, her plan to get rich, and - above all - her plan to have fun.
Sawyer has plenty of plans, too. Plans made for him by his mother, his father, his girlfriend. Maybe they aren't his plans, but they are plans.
When Sawyer meets Grace, he wonders if he should come up with a few plans himself. Plans about what he actually wants to be, plans to speak his own mind for a change, plans to maybe help Grace with a little art theft.
Wait a minute - plans to what?

"Benoit's fast pacing, spot-on dialogue, and plot twists keep readers guessing about Grace...rooting for Sawyer, and pondering questions about freedom, choice, and integrity in human connections. " - Publishers Weekly
"The novel's ending, while fitting with the story, is unexpected and will appeal to those teens who like their endings realistic, rather than happy." - VOYA
"The tension also builds slowly - more than half of the novel is given over to building up Sawyer's relationship with Grace. It's definitely an intriguing pairing, but less-patient readers will be flipping pages to get to the action. A slow-build, film-noir high-school drama." - Kirkus Reviews
