My life changed in an instant when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was only eighteen, and suddenly my once clear path was racing a hundred miles an hour out of control. I was in the driver’s seat, but completely unable to steer my life back on course. I lost friends and didn’t bother to make new ones. I refused to let anyone in… When the doctor uttered the word “remission,” my path changed yet again.
That new path led somewhere I never expected—somewhere most people would look down on—but it’s where I finally found myself, and where nobody treated me like a piece of fragile glass. It’s also where I learned other people had scars to hide. This is the story of how I met…him. This is the story of how I became Faith. Three (2.5) Boundless Stars
When this book appeared in front of me, I was intrigued. I've dealt with Cancer in my family. It is one of the hardest things to ever have to see and just feel hopeless.
Laura is young and has had Breast Cancer. After lots and lots of treatments, she finally told she is in remission. But she is unsure what to do now. On a whim she becomes a dancer at Hades. It's not a full stripper bar.
I understood why she went that route because in some aspect she wanted to feel normal. She has a ton of scars, not just the visible ones but inside as well. She doesn't date and doesn't have sex because she's embarrassed at what her body has become. I was a tad surprised she decided to do it, I mean I couldn't even think of doing that myself. She doesn't need the money, so she just does it because she wants too.
She meets a lot of awesome people and then she meets Bryce, who she can't stop thinking of.
There's a lot of good in this story. But it didn't hold my attention. It didn't grasp me or pull at me to an emotional level. The writing I felt was ok and think that there's some things that could be edited. But overall it was a good story. It was interesting to see where the story went. With that it's a 3 (2.5) for me.
