This was a great read and I finished it in about 5 hours. Once I started reading, I had to know how everything comes out. The ending: I kept reading and wondering how is this going to end. It was a shocker all around, but the story did complete itself. Great story!

This book had good bones and the potential for a great story. I felt the characters lacked depth in personality. The dialogue did not flow smoothly and there were major holes in the story. In additiin the author arbitrarily inserted journal notes from the main character Mimi. These seemed to be filler pages that recounted the five previous pages. I wish she would have used this to have her recount old memories and make us understand the character's choices.

Ummmmm I enjoyed this book, but more editing was needed. The wrong name was used several times and sometimes I felt like something was missing..... The book was a little off at times. As I was reading I would sometimes feel like I was missing something. The ending surprised me though.

This is a great book. The author grabbed your attention from the beginning and kept you wanting more. I love the twists that the author used in the book. Just when you think you know whats going to happen you get another surprise. Great job Suzetta Perkins.

This is the third book I have read from this author and I must say this was very good. From beginning to end filled with suspense. I thought this was a good book and I would share it with others.
