    Not Even Worth It When You Get It For Free, December 15, 2013

    This book was just not good. There’s no other way to describe it.
    1) It was plagued with grammatical and spelling errors that got worse near the end.
    2) The plot didn’t really work or make sense.
    3) The story seemed to drag without anything really bad happening for eighty percent of the book and then suddenly it gets super dramatic and overly climatic in the last couple chapters. Then the author throws a strange curve ball in the last two pages that seems overly disjointed from the rest of the story.
    In conclusion of whether or not I would read the sequel, I have to say absolutely not. The curve ball at the end was just so weird that it seemed to be only placed there so that the author could make a sequel that didn’t even fit with the rest of the book (that wasn’t very good anyway).

    she kept changing her facts, she kept changing her characters, and did nothing but confuse me. the author didn’t clarify any passages of time, created zero transactions, no images, left out so many details vital to a story telling, I didn’t get any more information out of the book than I did in the summary. She didn’t care enough to take the time to edit; there were so many errors, grammatical, spelling, structure, she skipped words… I understand this could very well be her own story, but if she wanted her story to be told that badly, why is she not putting the effort to try to make the reader understand the feeling, the detail of it all. This had some good potential but the way she jumped around with it… it just wasn’t good.

    The amount of spelling and grammatical errors was downright embarrassing. The mystery behind the main characters was quickly dissolved and the “twist” at the end was a desperate attempt to prolong this weak storyline.
    On the other hand, I can appreciate the author’s choice to bring up a difficult topic such as sexual abuse. I will, in fact, read the sequel in hopes of relieving my disappointment.
