really liked it
bookshelves: abuse, secrets, ya

This was a hard book to read, but the author found a delicate way to tackle the issues of bullying and abuse. The physical scenes made me a little uncomfortable, only because I felt so helpless while reading them, and I think that spoke to how potent the scenes the author created were.

My heart went out to Willow. No one should have to endure what she did. But I cannot tell a lie. There were many times that she aggravated me. I wanted her to speak up. Get the authorities involved. Tell a friend. Something. Anything was better than the life she was living. For such a strong and smart girl, she sometimes came off weak and dumb. I'm not sure this character had the capacity to send the right message to those who may be in similar circumstances. IF YOU'RE BEING ABUSED AT HOME, SEEK HELP. PLEASE!! Especially when it comes to children!!

Brody was freaking spectacular and everyone needs one of him in their lives. He was intelligent, handsome, sexy, smooth, considerate, and most importantly, concerned and supportive. I kept hoping for Willow to really put her trust and faith in him and LET HIM IN!! . I'm just glad he was there for her.

I'm unsatisfied with the ending. It seemed like Jaden got away with everything he did. Why wasn't he held accountable for any of his actions???

I liked the supporting characters Jenna and Tim, however, I kept wondering why everyone was allowing what was happening to continue. Why did no one else contact the authorities??? Why did no one speak up??? And why didn't the faculty at the school get involved???

Ah well, evil didn't prosper in the end thankfully.
