My Rating: 4 stars
I wasn't sure what I was getting into with this book as it's not part of my normal reads. Every now and then I like to try something new, and I'm glad I took a change on this one of a kind book.
This book really pulls at the heart strings, it was real. The plot stayed on point, I wasn't left confused nor was I dragged into any plot holes. The writing had a almost musical ton that kept you hooked. It was hard to put this book down for a second.
I don't want to say too much about what actually happens, there are somethings that are better left unsaid, but in saying that, you have to read this book. It takes you into the world of recovery, heartache and moving on. It will bring tears to your eyes and warm your heart all while making you wonder how this author could do such thing with only words.
I highly recommend this book, it is truly one of a kind and is worth the read.
