When Liz moves to a new high school, she hopes for a fresh start. School is her escape from the violence at home and her only hope for breaking the cycle of

harmless distraction from the fear.

She's Wrong.

*My Review*
When it's safer outside, where do you go?

"Liz" is excited for a fresh start at a new school. With only a hand full of people knowing "Beefy Beth" from middle school, she couldn't be more ready for the new place to escape to.

On her first day of school, Liz meets Logan. To her surprise, he thinks she's beautiful. With everything going on in Liz's life, she doesn't want to get close to him for fear of her home life putting Logan in jeopardy. 

"She comes from trash and I wouldn't want you to get dirty."- Mandy

Having a mother who has lost herself a long time ago, two younger siblings who needs her to be their protector and an abusive step-father, who terrorizes them all at any chance he can. Liz finds different way's to escape her home life, because the outside is always safer than the inside.

"Your secret is safe with me. All of your secrets."- Logan

With things heating up with Liz and Logan, Liz fears he will get hurt. In turn she would rather lose her first love by breaking his heart, than by him running away in fear of her home life.

Can Liz let go of her fears, accept Logan is in her life to stay or will everything around her crumble? Will Liz be able to show Logan the real Elizabeth and can he accept it?

Safer Outside is a journey of friendship, heartache, love and loss. You will fall in love with these characters Kristian Renee gave us. Logan is just the perfect boy you would have wanted to date in high school. He has this sweet side and tough side. I just wanted to squeeze him! This story was having me flash back to the day's of my teenage life and bringing back old memories. For a debut novel, Kristina hit it out of the ball park!! She gives us everything we would want in a book and then she'll have you wanting and needing more. My heart broke for Liz. I wanted to be her protector and tell her it would all be okay. There's nothing better than reading a book that draws you in like this one. I can't wait for the second book in the series!  I give Safer Outside 5 STARS!!!
