You meet Maggie, who is a college student. Taking care of her brother, after the loss of her parents. She's struggling but knows she had to make a better life, not just for her but her brother. He's in her custody.
Luke, is a gym teacher. He decided teaching was for him but his parents really didn't agree. His dad wanted him to be something like a lawyer or a doctor.
While reading, I felt that the writing was a bit over descriptive and repetitive, At some points. I know some like a lot of detail, but I like to imagine.
As much as I wanted to, I didn't connect with any of thecharacters. There's a lot of things that were left on the table. The story itself was good but I think that a lot of things could have been better.
