Synopsis (Goodreads):
Chloe and Derek have adjusted to life in Badger Lake. It’s not perfect, but it’s safe and they’re learning the skills they’ll need when it comes time to make a decision about their futures. They’re comfortable and they’re settled . . . until a weekend camping trip with Maya and Daniel reunites them with someone they thought they’d left in the past. Someone Derek really hoped they’d left in the past, because as much as this former friend might want to atone for past mistakes, she’s nothing but trouble.
Thoughts on Atoning: Oh, man. This book reminded me exactly why I adore Chloe and Derek so darn much. Something about the two of them together makes me so happy. I could read snippets about them FOREVER and not get tired of the way they interact.

*makes happy, giddy noises for a few more minutes*

Right. So Derek and Chloe. Maya and Daniel are there, too. And they're pretty awesome when they all join forces. Especially since the Nast Cabal has been teaching these kids how to defend themselves and fight back. Which they do nicely.

There's some backstabbing (not between Derek and Chloe) and some twisty moments when they come face to face with a familiar face. And there's kissing. I like the kissing parts.

All in all, a solid jump back into a world I adore with characters I can't get enough of.

(PS. I'm on a Darkest Powers reread now. For reasons.)
