An urban romance that will capture your soul, break your heart, and restore your faith in the human spirit

Fifteen-year-olds Cece and Mack didn't expect to fall in love. She's a sensitive A student; he's a high school dropout. But soon they're spending every moment together, bonding over a rescued dog, telling their secrets, making plans for the future. Everything is perfect. Until. Until . Mack makes a horrible mistake, and in just a few minutes, the future they'd planned becomes impossible. In this stark new reality, both of them must find meaning and hope in the memories of what they had, to survive when the person they love can't stay.

From award-winning writer Paul Griffin, Stay with Me is both heartbreaking and uplifting, filled with characters (both dog and human) that will forever change the way you look at the world.

I loved this book. It's so good and well-written. I love how the plot unfolds, and the description of feelings and everything. And the character development is also good. But it's so damn sad!

Young adult literature seems to be getting darker and more grittier than ever before and Stay With Me is no exception. Real teens are dealing with an assortment of difficult issues every day. Without the autonomy of being adults, teens have a hard time fixing tough situations on their own. Stay With Me is a poignant protrayal of that reality. Combining the same grit as Johnny from The Outsiders with the skills of Cesar Milan The Dog Whisperer, Mack is a fusion both maddening and hopeful all at once.
