Refuge/Carole Rummage


    "Laney Lowell moved across the country to escape her past, not to fall in love. But when she becomes friends with Gabe, a handsome artist plagued by a mysterious disease, she'll have to decide between facing his dark truth or walking away from him forever." 


    Laney feels lost and alone when she moves in with her Aunt and Uncle, this is until she decides to run one morning in the forest nearby. Named the Refuge for the red wolves the town is trying to save from being extinct. Laney meets Gabe while he is out getting inspiration for his next art project. He and Laney find out they have much in common, save for the disease Gabe and his older brother have. What disease, no one knows. 
    This is a Young Adult novel. I think that if you enjoyed Twilight, or other books in that field, then you will like this book. For me I figured out what the disease was quite early on, but for Laney it took her until almost the end of the book to figure it out. I loved the roles of her Aunt and Uncle, and how opposite they are from one another, yet they are the perfect match. 
    This book also puts into perspective that tragedy can strike when you least expect it, and your life can change quite drastically. Spend every day living like it could be your last, cause who knows who or what will be taken from you when you least expect it.
