Streamline by Jennifer Lane
Amazon / Goodreads
Blurb via Goodreads-
"Seems like Leo Scott has it all: looks, brains, and athletic talent. He's captain of his high school swim team with a bright future in college and beyond. But Leo has secrets. His mother's crippling car accident has devastated his family and left Leo to deal with his father's abuse, battered and alone.
Leo's girlfriend Audrey Rose is poised for her own share of success. As one of Florida's top high school swimmers, Audrey dreams of college swimming stardom. But there's an obstacle to her glorious rise to the top. Her number-one supporter-her father-is in prison for murder.
Part murder mystery, part tale of young love in a military family, this gripping story takes readers on a journey from Pensacola to Annapolis. Leo and Audrey must band together to rise above the adversity they encounter and find their true selves in the process. When everything's on the line . . . streamline"
Streamline was an emotional and powerful read. I was pulled in from the start and the writing is excellent. Streamline deals with a lot of different subjects, from abuse, murder, teen pregnancy, addiction and Jennifer Lane did a fantastic job combining the subjects. I would recommend reading this in a quiet room with little interuptions because there is a lot going on in the book and you miss out on something important!
Streamline is a beautiful read that I highly recommend to mature YA and adults.
5 out of 5 stars.
