I'm in two minds about this book. On one hand I really enjoyed the story, I couldn't put it down. I only started it yesterday and I'm done already. But on the other hands I found the characters really hard to like. There were times when I did like Kaitlyn but then I would remember she was a pretty hardcore criminal and loads of people would have been affected by the drugs trade.

Loved this book i have read other non fiction books by Kevin Lewis but this was the first novel and couldn't put it down

A gritty story which kept me hooked till the end.
I thought this was a brillantly written novel by Kevin Lewis, particularly because it felt so real. Probably down to the his experiences. Tough to read in parts, it confronts some values the reader has. Although, in my opinion, it did get slightly off track towards the middle, it was still a compelling read, couldn't put it down!
A two year old survives a brutal attack by his father and is then put up for adoption. This is a story of how the affects of one person ruins three lives. I enjoyed the read, but made me wonder if we are who we are through nature rather than nurture.
Very emotional, moving and at the same time thrilling and exciting story, hard to ignore or put down. The protagonist is realistic, likeable girl who despite her occupation doesn't lose her heart and affection to her brother.

Was pleasantly surprised by this book, never judge a book by it's cover! Excellent first novel by kevin lewis, the fact that it was drawn from his own experiences made it even better.
I liked this book and it was very hard to put down. The only let down for me was that some of the events that take place throughout the book become a little bit unbelievable.
