Summary from Goodreads:
Nevaeh Evan’s life is uprooted after her father’s death, when she moves in with her aunt and cousin, Livvie. Her plan to lay low at her new high school isn’t working. Her friend’s jerky boyfriend keeps asking her out, the guy she likes treats her like garbage, and the thought of tumbling again makes her want to hurl.

So when her aunt pushes her into joining the elite X-FACTOR cheer leading squad, Navaeh goes along with it.

But Nev feels she doesn’t deserve to be happy. Not after what happened the night her father died.

Bodie Scott knows about grief all too well. Critically injured in an alcohol related accident the year before, Bodie struggles with the fact that he’ll never play football again, and he’s so far behind in credits he can’t see straight. That is, until he meets Nev. Haunted by their bloody pasts and wary of a shared future, Nev and Bodie turn to one another for comfort and support, and realize they’re not so alone after all. And when the party scene at school threatens the life of a loved one, the two stop at nothing to keep the past from repeating itself.

                                                                               My Review

Nev has recently lost her father in an accident and has a very ill mother. It must therefore move from his aunt and cousin, in a new city. To better integrate into her new life, her aunt and cousin recommend joining the team Ex Factor. The girl is initially hesitant because now there will be no one to cheer for her. But eventually find out that they were right. The new school will also know Bodie, the classic bad guy. In reality it is just a great guy, very tormented by his past. These two souls adrift will meet and try to support each other.
 It 's a novel sensitive and sweet, very real, the author has dealt very gently a very timely topic as driving under the influence of alcohol and very important thing is able to convey a message to the boys

A must-read YA

Summary from Goodreads:
Perception is everything to sixteen-year-old Olivia Brown. With her freakishly hot boyfriend, volunteer work at the local animal shelter, successful beauty channel on YouTube, and well-earned spot on X Factor Cheer's elite level five Diamond Girl team, Livvie's the girl every other girl wants to be. At least, that's the illusion she's aiming for.

But Livvie's seemingly perfect life is anything but. Lying about the bruises her boyfriend gives her, and cowering beneath his raging temper becomes a regular way of life until she unwittingly witnesses her drunken neighbor beating his step-son, the town bad boy, Reid Tate.

For Reid, vulnerability is the enemy. Opening up, and letting people in gives them the power to disappoint. Growing up with a co-dependent mother and an abusive alcoholic father, Reid has endured all the disappointment he can stomach.

But when his pretty, do-good neighbor witnesses his step-dad beat him to within an inch of his life, and not only call the cops, but keeps quiet at school about what she saw, Reid wonders if maybe, just maybe, he's found someone he can finally trust.

                                                                     My Review

It's the second part of the book above, but can be read as a stand-alone
Livvie is the cousin of Ned and is the protagonist of the second story. She's a very popular girl and super committed and believes she has the perfect life. An evening witnessing a quarrel of neighbors, where his classmate Reid is savagely beaten by his stepfather. She intervenes and calls the police and then tries to protect the boy not to reveal to anyone what she saw. Livvie is already engaged to P.J. he does not really want good and Reid will try to make her understand.

Also in this book there is a very delicate issue such as domestic violence and the author has done very gently and managed to send out a strong message.

The author has also created for this story of the characters real and believable

Both books are written very well and are really compelling
