Stay with Me features the unlikely romance between 15-year-olds CeCe, a sensitive A student, and Mack, a high school dropout.

But when Mack makes a terrible mistake, their shared vision of the future begins to crumble.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This funny, wrenching, often heartbreaking novel…brings contemporary characters and authentic street atmosphere, not to mention dogs and dysfunction, to the age-old story of two teenagers—here, same side of the tracks but different ends of the academic spectrum—in the bliss of first love…Griffin gracefully answers questions and solves mysteries, leaving us with hope and a smile without making things falsely shiny and bright.” New York Times Book Review
“Griffin's gift at giving voice to deeply flawed, disadvantaged characters without patronizing or oversimplifying their circumstances shines in this moving novel of loss, acceptance, and the possibility of redemption.” Publishers Weekly
“Although boys will enjoy this story, it will resonate with girls as they cheer and cry for the bad boy with a good heart.” VOYA
“This is a powerful book and good a jumping off point for a discussion of choices and their consequences. Even reluctant-reader teen boys can relate to this book.” Children’s Literature
“An outstanding love story peopled by a wealth of memorable characters.” Kirkus Reviews
