'My body was being torn apart, and my stomach felt as if it exploded. The pain was excruciating, and I was aware that I was dying... 'Mom?' My vision was murky, but I could see her face. It was bloody, and her eyes were large and full of fear. Her voice calmed. 'Get out of the car, Attie.' Her words sounded crisp and clear. I looked into the backseat in search of Melody and found her lying covered in blood in a twisted heap on the floor. I turned my attention back to my mother and out of the corner of my eye saw fire. 'Get out, Attie!' 'Mom?' Everything went dark.' Attie Reed should have died in the wreck that stole the lives of her mother and best friend. But her life was spared. Why? When Attie moves to Oklahoma to stay with the Bennetts for the summer, she hopes she has left her nightmares behind. But her battle is far from over, and Riley Bennett steps forward to help her fight the nighttime monsters. As the battle wears on, Riley begins fighting monsters of his own: his feelings for Attie. And Attie realizes she must begin to face the monsters of the night herself if she wants to conquer them for good. Can Attie's life be Salvaged?

This novel has carefully balanced emotion and humor to prov...
First off, I just have to say that there is no way I can give this book an unbiased review. Not because I relate to the story or because I know the author, because I don't....but because the story is set in Oklahoma. That made me feel so much more connected to the story, I had a lot of fun reading a...
Salvaged is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. It was touching and heartbreaking and full of feelings that I could really relate to. I think every teenage girl will feel some connection to Attie and this book needs to be added to everyone's to-read lists (or piles).Attie Reed's li...
