"Look around you, see how beautiful it is. Don't you feel insignificant? There are things bigger than us, forces that guide our lives. We don't know why things happen. All we can do is control how we react to those situations. That's what makes us human. It's those reactions that prove what we are made of."


For a first book this was a great read and having read everything else this author has written I can see the amazing development she has made with her writing but the trade mark RL Griffin

I read this book when it first came out. This the the author's first book, but you wouldn't know it. The flow, the message, the language and the characters are all seamless and well-developed. I think I need to re-read and then can update my review with more detail, but this is worth putting on your "to-read" list as a light-ish novel that's a quick read.

**UPDATE**
I re-read this book a couple of weeks ago while on a camping trip. Finished the whole thing in about 3 hours. I had forgotten how muc

Very impressive for the author's first novel. The characters and the plot held my interest -- I read it quickly because I couldn't put it down! I also enjoyed the references to familiar places: University of Georgia...Georgia Southern...DSW shoes ;) I'm really looking forward to the author's next book.

I really enjoyed this book. It took my back to the years after graduating college and reminded me how happy I am to have those days behind me. I think it was a great depiction of how a young woman would react to difficult circumstances. I finished the book and thought I had the ending figured out until I talked with a friend about it. I had to go back and read it again! Didn't see that one coming. This is the author's first novel and her second book will be published soon. I can't wait to read ...more

This was a great book and easy to read. The writing style is wonderful in that the descriptive portions are short and to the point and you are able to become part of the book through the characters' dialogue.

A perfect example of strength and resilience of seemingly fragile life through the strong bonds of friendship.

Hey - I wrote this book when I was 22. I'm so proud of it, but it was published before Kindle and is now out of print. I'm working on it, but it'll be after I finish the By A Thread Series. Thanks for checking it out.
