Cross Your Heart

Bruce Hart, Author, Carole Hart, With Avon Books $3.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-380-89971-5
Gary is Angelica's first boyfriend, and he seems nearly perfect to her; in fact, her love enables her to accept a number of ugly revelations about him, including the knowledge that he is the high school's biggest marijuana dealer. But then two kids, high on cocaine, are killed in a car crash. Angelica knows who sold them the drug, and, although it hurts her deeply, she informs the FBI of Gary's illegal activities. Because so much of this novel is romantic, this tragic conclusion may seem abrupt and simplistic to some readers. But the combination of a hip, breezy style and engaging characters makes this an appealing read. Ages 12-up. (June)
