In Crave, seventeen-year-old Scarlet has always been a part of the popular crowd. But after she’s caught drinking at a party, her mother ships her off to live with her aunt in a small town where no one knows who she is. There, Scarlet meets Eli and David–two guys who are nothing like anyone she’s ever met before. With Eli, she feels safe sharing secrets about her past; and with David, she starts to see that there might be more to life than just being someone people want to be around. As summer turns into fall and Scarlet gradually becomes closer to both boys, tensions between them rise as they struggle to deal with their own issues: Eli faces his family’s stance on homosexuality while David wrestles with guilt over his role in an accident that killed three people. Just when it seems like things can’t get any more complicated,Scarlet discovers that each of the young men holds something inside him that he doesn’t want anyone else to know…including herself.
