This book took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I wasn't sure how it was going to end. There is a predictable twist to the story so I'm going to avoid talking about the plot so I don't spoil the book for anyone.

This book tackles addiction. Not the gritty idea of using. There is no descriptive scene of smoking, snorting, or needle pushing. It's more about the backlash. The effects of addiction on the ones who love the addict. It was a painful read and made me empathize completely with the main characters. It explains that you don't have to be a drug user or alcoholic to be an addict. Faith is addicted to drugs. Any drugs really it seems. Grace is addicted to Faith and the guilt she harbours pushes her to make some hard choices. Jude is addicted to being Captain-saves-a-lot and is forced to realize that he can't save everyone.

This was a good book and I appreciate the epilogue in Jude's POV. However, I would have liked to read more of his voice throughout the book.
