All that matters to Katie Martin is hockey, in which she is the rising star at her school and is firmly on her way towards a scholarship. But her plans take a detour when she meets Alec Osborne- the most popular guy (and the meanest) in school. Their volatile relationship takes a turn for the worse after a night of party and leaves Katie in debt to Alec in the worst possible way. Lisa Luedeke's debut is a knock out that will grip readers from the first page to the last. Achingly painfully but hopeful, "Smashed" is a stunning debut from an emerging voice in YA.
