TWO ABANDONED REBELS. ONE EXPLOSIVE CONNECTION.
When Robbie faces his community after years of hiding in the shadows, he’s branded a monster. His condition means that his body is freakishly muscular, a bodybuilder gone wrong, where every shifting tendon pulsates. He wants to find Nurse Nola, the one who understood him when doctors performed the endless research that stripped away his childhood. Instead, he finds streetwise Kat who wants to find Nola for different reasons.
When Kat sticks up for Robbie in the face of her gang’s cruel digs, their friendship begins. But when Robbie uses his muscle to rescue her from a violent incident, his blind rage is exposed, and he has the daunting task of earning back her trust. This is the story of improbable love, where the universe unites two fragments of the past to create an extraordinary bond.

Omg....this is so, so, so sad. I was so worried about every character this book has! The writing is so good!
It's been a while since I read a really intense, good young adult fiction. This is it and I am really impressed.
The story deals with broken flawed characters with family members dealing with a lot of issues. It's a lot to take in while you'd be reading this book. I would suggest you to take your time to read it.
You will want to do something for the characters and you will feel guilty the entire time not being able to do anything about it. They struggle and keep struggling throughout the entire read. But honestly I love how raw and honest the characters are, their development is done so well. The story telling is fantastic. The writing nailed it.
The ending is everything! Life is indeed beautiful and it's made of imperfections.
Thank you, Evernight Teen, for the advance review copy.
