Crumble by Fluer Philips

About The Book:
Eighteen-year-old Sarah McKnight has a secret. She’s in love with David Brooks. Sarah is white. David is black. But Sarah’s not the only one keeping secrets in the small town, close-knit community of Kalispell, Montana. Her father George, who owns a local gun shop and proudly drives a truck with a Confederate flag bumper sticker, hides his own complicated past. When he discovers Sarah’s relationship, George decides to share his feelings with Alex Mackey - a lonely classmate of Sarah’s whom George has taken under his wing. As Alex embraces the power of George’s dark hatred, the hopes and dreams of young lives hang in the balance. In just a few short months, Sarah and David will graduate from high school and leave small town Kalispell for a new life together in Los Angeles. Maybe in California, they can stop hiding their love - and other secret they share…..something George McKnight - and Alex Mackey - will never accept.

My Thoughts:
This is an excellent read! It is the story of interracial relationships in this modern day and age. I was hooked from the beginning, and could not put the book down. It might a little heavy for some people, so just take warning. But aside from the racial aspect, this is a story of young love, past regrets, and moving on into the future.
