Brooklyn felt like an imposter from the moment her worn Keds touched the sidewalk outside Empire High, a school for the elite. She wasn’t here because she was rich, or because she’d earned a scholarship, no, she was here because her world had ended. This was the last place in the world she could ever belong, and thanks to the cruel twists of fate last place she had to call home. The only thing that made things bearable was her new friend, and him, Matt Caldwell, just looking at him was enough to lift the sadness, only she no longer wanted to look, she wanted to touch, and that was something no one could do. Matt and his friends were the Untouchables, and yet without exchanging a word he’d already touched her in the most profound way imaginable
Ivy Smoak has done it again, delivering an engaging emotionally gripping story in Empire High, Untouchables. My only regret with this book is not waiting until the second one in the series was out. Now I have to wait until October to find out what happens next. This book was an emotional roller-coaster, full of charm, sweetness, and so much heartbreak that there were times it had me in tears. I have read every almost every book written by this talented author, and she never disappoints. Well written, enjoyable from the first page to the last.
