Â Â Â Uman is funny, confident, and smart. He does what he wants without a care for what anyone thinks. The only people for him, he says, are the mad ones, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn.
Â Â Â He is everything Gloria wants to be. He can whisk her away and show her a more daring, more exciting life in which the only limits are the boundaries of her own boldness. But Uman is not all he seems. And by the time she learns the truth about him, sheâs a long way from home . . . and the whole country wants to know: Whereâs Gloria?
Â Â Â For fans ofÂ Dreamland by Sarah Dessen,Â Stolen by Lucy Christopher, and the Mara Dyer books by Michelle Hodkin.
