I've been told never to plan too strictly because life tends to do what it wants. Life can throw you a curveball in the blink of an eye. Split Second is a book about how Kelli Miller learned to deal with the curveballs that life threw at her.

This was a powerful book that really makes you step back and take a look at your own life. Definitely a good read.

*Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a strong novel that really gives you the tools you need to improve your outlook on life and even relationships.

I liked the way that this was set up, the writing style was well done and easy to follow.

There were many lighthearted and comedic things thrown in that keeps this novel light and spirited.

What a powerful novel and powerful voice Kelli Miller has. This was a very real story and it provided plenty of life lessons along the way. This is a heartwrenching story that teaches us that while life throws us major curveballs, we are able to overcome. Empowering and Thought-Provoking and Enlightening all at once.

I loved how this novel was full of great advice and solid examples. I didn't feel like I was being told how to do something by someone who didn't have legitimate facts backing them up, real world experience.

I think you need to go into reading this with somewhat of a clear head. It's a nice novel to step away with and clear your mind to new ideas and thinking.

I won this book in a Goodreads first-reads giveaway.

Heartfelt and inspiring book of how your life can change in an instant by things outside your control, but also how you can always improve on your life by taking action.
