Touched by Paul MaurerJimmy and Renee are classmates. She was a new girl to the school. The school had groups of special clubs, they would pick on Renee and Jimmy. Quite a story about teenagers and some of the things they do.
I won this book from a giveaway. Touched was a quick read. Would recommend for young adults.
