Beautifully written with impressive emotional depth. The story flawlessly shifts from the present to past, a current experience that would trigger a flashback of a sad memory. Cassie’s narrative is one you would truly empathize with.
It’s so sad, a sadness so palpable, I wish I could save her from such a terrible upbringing. I wanted to slap her mother senseless to instill some sense and heart in her. I wanted to shake her father out of his inaction and indifference. This is how evocative the story is.
It’s a strong reminder of the power parents especially of their hold over their children, their ability to break or make them. This another eye-opening, thought provoking read not only for young adults but also for adults, especially for parents.
P.S. Don’t you think that’s a gorgeous cover?
