First off, I'd like to say thank you to Goodreads' First-reads and Mark Mansfield for a copy of Scars Run Deep. Due to my hectic senior year, I have been unable to really get into it until today.

Emily's story is one that will move anyone with a heart, and it is not always an easy one to read. This poor girl has hurdle after hurdle thrown in her path, and sometimes it seems like it is just not possible for her to have a good life. Of course, Emily is not one to bury her head in the same. She k

I received this book from the GoodReads First Reads program!
I enjoyed this book, and I enjoyed reading about Emily and everything she had to go through to find happiness again. I especially liked when she and her family made up; it gave a happier ending to this mostly sad story. If Mark Mansfield writes another book soon I will most likely read it!

This book is about Emily and the bad things that happened to her at the age of 16, the people who let her down the most, and the positive way she turned her life around, the friends she made in the midst of all her troubles, finding a true relationship with Christ and mending her broken relationships.

I really enjoyed this book. It is really sad in the beginning and I found myself shedding tears for Emily and her pain. As I

First of all, I would like to thank Mark Mansfield very much for sending me a copy of this book. I really appreciate it.

Though this book has an interesting premise, the writing is a bit dull.

The book is about a girl named Emily, who gets accused of a crime she did not commit. Forced into terrifying situations, Emily learns about the cruelties of the world. She also learns about hope.

In my opinion, this book was very rushed at the beginning and very drawn out towards the end, which made it feel

I won this book several months ago from a Goodreads giveaway, but due to a recent move, new state and new job, I haven't gotten around to reading it until now.

I was not overly impressed. The basis of the story was good; however, the writing left a little bit to be desired. It was a lot of dialogue as opposed to any character building or descriptive writing. Also, the timeline and progression of the story was very jagged. You turned the page and suddenly it was months later, with no real explana
