Synopsis

Joyride by Anna Banks

It's been several years since Carly Vega's parents were deported. Carly lives with her older brother, studies hard, and works the graveyard shift at a convenience store to earn enough to bring her parents back from Mexico. Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He used to date popular blondes and have fun pranking with his older sister, Amber. But now all that's changed, and Arden needs a new accomplice. All Carly wants, at first, is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to not do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realise they've been living according to the wishes of others. Carly and Arden's journey toward their true hearts and one another is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh. Just like real life.
