The new DARK ROMANCE novel from Callie Hart!
There’s nothing that the students of Raleigh High can do to Silver Parisi anymore. Over the past year, she’s had to endure more pain and suffering than most people are asked to bear in their lifetimes. She’s a pariah, an outcast, a ghost. She’s also never been one to take shit lying down, though…despite what half the football team might say.
With only one hundred and sixty-eight days left of the school year, it won’t be long until graduation, and Silver’s planning on skipping town and leaving Raleigh firmly in her rear-view mirror…
Until he comes along…
Alex Moretti’s earned most of his labels, and he’s not shamed of a single one of them. He’ll earn far worse before he’s finished with his new found ‘friends’ at Raleigh High. Having spent years being ground down under the boot heel of society, it’s time for a little payback. And if exacting a revenge upon the heads of the Raleigh elite means he can also help the beautiful girl who hovers in the shadows, then that’s all for the better.
Oil and water. Fire and ice. The differences between Silver and Alex are broader than any chasm. To reach one another, they must take a leap of faith and fall into the divide.
Nothing good ever came from falling.

A college romance that packs a heavy punch to the emotions.
The Rebel of Raleigh High is gripping, has elements of dark, it's intense and I just couldn't stop turning the pages.
The beginning of The Rebel of Raleigh High immediately caught my attention and I could't wait to find out more about Alex Moretti and the reasoning behind his actions in the first few pages of this book, he comes across as mad, bonkers, a bad-boy and a rebel and I had to know more..
Silver Parisi used the be the "It girl" of Raleigh high until one night changed her life, her friends who were at the top of the high school chain disowned her and she was no longer the girl in the limelight anymore. Silver's aim following the incident was just to finish High school with her chin up and to get her grades. Silver was now a girl who sat in the back of class, in the shadows but she was a survivor and a 17 year old girl with backbone who was determined to just finish school, even if it was alone and without her turncoat friends.
Alex Moretti is an orphan, a bad boy, a rebel and he is brought to Raleigh High by his social worker with an ultimatum, a new school or prison for what he had just been caught in the act doing, he had only one choice and that was to change schools and turn over a new leaf if he ever wanted to get his little brother back.
Alex and Silver are both mature characters who have had to take on the roles of adults before their time, so even though this is a high school romance, the characters felt a lot older at times.
There is so much to this book, Alex's backstory, Silver's backstory as well as lots going on in the present.
On the romance side of things in Alex and Silvers story, Alex and Silver have immediate chemistry, two outcasts with a kindred spirit, they were so meant to find one-another and although Silver pushes him away again and again because she doesn't want to bring any attention to herself, especially with the bad boy vibe Alex gives off, something all the girls are pining for, Silver tries to deter Alex, if she lets him in she would also have to trust someone again, so she continues to push, but Alex can't deny the pull toward her and he just keeps on going and going until she relents, until she gives in to her feelings too.
A high-school romance, a story containing hate, jealousy, spite, loss, grief, revenge, forgiveness, starting over, new beginnings and trust. This isn't a high school romance with it's high school childlike dramas, this story is intense and has some gruesome moments, Alex and Silver are two teenagers with a whole lot of baggage of hurt and wrongs done to them but together, working together, they find healing.
In summary: A captivating story that I would highly recommend.
