I started to read this book because a family member of the author told me about it. I like supporting local authors... I'm so glad I did this book has highs lows an you felt all of it from the descriptive writing. Thank you for writing this book and trying to help spread awareness of domestic abuse. I would like to read more from you soon.

I read :08 SECONDS in one sitting! Maddie White excels at writing conversation that effectively drives this fast-paced story. It explores the dilemma of a young woman finding herself in a dangerous relationship: how will she protect herself and others she loves? How can she trust anyone else again?
