RIVERDALE meets INCEPTION in this twisty and unique Ya coming-of-age romance by Ginger Scott

Quarterback.
Class president.
Burnout.
We all have our identities.
Most of the time, they come from our circumstances. They’re made by others—shoes for us to walk in whether they fit or not.
But what if?
What if we could take off those shoes.
What if we could wear a different pair?
What if those boxes we put ourselves in are better…worse?
And what if, when we do…we’re trapped there for good?
They all call me Cowboy.
She’s the damsel who doesn’t need to be rescued.
And him…he’s the villain.
This is our story. And this is how we want it to be told.

If you’ve never seen Inception, then you’ll be kind of lost. Even though this is a YA book, it’s a stark departure from Scott’s normal writing. It definitely has the darkness you’ll see in Riverdale (hopefully you’ve seen it too). And it’s certainly unique. In fact, I’m going to call it super twisted and hard to keep track. The writing is great, because c’mon, it’s Ginger Scott. She’s one of my Go To One-Click authors. However, this book lost me. A lot. And I had a hard time keeping up with the characters and plot development because I wasn’t able to read more than a few chapters at a time.

Once I got into the last 40% of the book, things began to clarify and I was able to untangle some of the web. That’s when I really started getting into it and understand what the characters meant to me. And I must add that while I am an avid YA reader, this sub-genre of YA is not my cup of tea. And that could easily explain why I had a detachment from the book.

Scott does a good job of making you second guess what you think you’ve figured out in the book and keeps you guessing throughout. Props for that. I could never figure out if I was rooting for Villain, Cowboy, or if they were the same person. Even though this wasn’t a five star read for me, I’m still thrown for a loop by how well the author perfectly tangled and untangled the story. There are a lot of details and foreshadowing throughout, but you won’t see it until after. And for you 90s peeps out there, Scott throws you a Matrix reference!

Overall, the sci-fi quality of the book just wasn’t in my wheelhouse, but regardless Scott did a bang up job.

Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).
