I received this ARC of My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Lulu Mendez has just been told that her dream of moving out to California for college is no more. Her parents can’t afford to pay her tuition but that doesn’t stop Lulu from coming up with a plan, an illegal one, but a plan nonetheless. Lulu wants to make and sell moonshine but she needs the expertise of Mason, a local boy who has a dark past, but is he willing to help.
The ingredients for moonshine are ordinary. Innocent.
Corn. Sugar. Yeast. Heat and Time.
They could be the makings for something simple and forgettable. Like corn bread, bland and boring without butter and honey.
But the same ingredients, thrown together in a particular way, lead to dangerous results.
You say it was all meant to be…
There’s a fine line between toxic and intoxicating.
