Rating: 3 Ravens

A very interesting coming of age story that allows the reader to see the perspective of both girls through their eyes, The one where it seems the old girl is not being let go and the new girls is not being accepted the odd similarities of them both and the fact that no matter how hard you try sometimes you just have to accept yourself and say forget everyone else. Though the story seems oddly familiar and I’m sure that it’s been done in several books there were unique twists and turns, One thing I do like is how the girl was taken from the typical perfect life beach setting and placed among the cold environments of a private school. Where she was forced to grow up and make the right choices and mistakes on her own without the help of parents.

I liked that no matter how hard others wished or tried to make her be someone she wasn’t she chose to be herself and stuck through it no matter what. Though the ending was a little sad in some ways especially since well you will find out . Just check it out and see if it’s something you like but be warned it is a little drama filled and tense at times. A serious book for a serious young adult.
