Point of Retreat is so butterflying awesome! I could not put this book down. I think it's best to NOT know what the slammed series is about and to just jump on the emotional roller coaster and read, like I did. If I didn't have a huge grin on my face or if I wasn't laughing while reading this, I was most likely crying.. I actually cried A LOT, whether it was tears of joy or heartbreaking sobs. The Slammed books really knows how to tug at your heart strings.
