LOVE AND SECOND CHANCES ARE NEVER FREE
For the five kids who live at St. Jude's Home for Court Placed Juveniles, life is a nightmare.
Carissa, the youngest, has been there the longest. And barely speaks.
Rosa is sixteen and pregnant.
Simon keeps his head down and studies, hoping to get back the life he lost.
Beth and Tommy, in the middle of the darkness, have found each other, and all they want is to be together. But when they get caught making out at school, it puts everyone in danger. Tommy is used to the beatings from their foster father, but when Beth is singled out for punishment, Tommy can't sit back and let it happen.
AND ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID
What happens that night rips apart the lives of the five teenagers forever.
After the blood has been spilled, a bargain is made. A deal with the devil that should have solved things. It should have fixed everything.
But nothing is free - not love, not innocence, and certainly not freedom. And sooner or later, all debts must be paid...

I have never read one of Molly O'Keefe's books but boy did I pick a good one to start with. The Debt is the prologue to a series about five teens who have been put into court ordered living facilities and have learned the best way to avoid any activities that will make them stand out. Until one night, that will change all that, forever. This was a quick, easy read prologue that set the scene wonderfully for the books that follow, and I can't wait for book two in a few weeks time.
What an amazing start! This is a quick read to introduce the characters of The Debt Series. There is a tie in to The Bad Boy Romance Series. It is about 5 teenagers that have been placed in St. Jude's Home For Juveniles. It is soul crushing! It is about friendships forged out of necessity and the lengths that they will go to survive. After one horrific night all their lives have changed. Now they have a debt to repay to a very dangerous man. And the worst part is they do not know how or when they will be called on to repay that debt. I was sucked right into this story. These are amazing characters. I cannot wait to read Lost Without You!
