5 - Stars
There's something so emotionally raw about this story.
You meet Anna a girl, who just wants to be wanted. Wants to be loved for who she really is. She ran away from home three years ago and during that time. Her innocence was stolen, by someone she learned to trust. She thinks he saved her, in her naive mind. She ends up going home, after a run in with the law.
Now, after what she's been through, is it possible to lead a normal life? Be a teenager?
Once she's home, I understand why she ran. Her dream was New York. He family life was not good and was being abused in other ways. But running away doesn't do anything. You may be put in another type of nightmare.
Coming back, Anna meets some new people. She becomes friends with Alex, Jen and Jackson. They all have their own secrets, ones they're afraid will come out. High School can be cruel. But everyone has a secret.
I really believe that this story is about being honest. Being honest about who you are. Realizing that you can be strong, when you don't think you are. Everyone has different reasons, why they are the way they are. You just have to look more, than what's on the surface. There you'll find what it is. Anna though, feels weak. Is one strong girl, to experience all she had. But come out on top.
This is the author's debut novel. An amazing start. You'll walk away from this wondering, what's next? I want to see what else she has to write. What story is just dying to come out? I know we've only just scratched the surface.
