Ok, so I had heard that something happens in this book. It's not something it's somethings that happen. I am still processing and thinking about this...

Colleen is an exceptional writer. She made you feel things that you didn't even want to feel in this book. How do I explain myself. Please bare with me. It was a hard read, for me at least.

The true test of an exceptional writer is when you can feel every freaking thing that happens in a book. EVERYTHING! As well as remember and think about it long after you have finished it. I don't want to go into detail with it either. It deals with hard subject matter that had me reeling several different times throughout.

Let me just say that my heart physically ached for Sky. I literally felt physical pain for her. I felt for Holder and his loss.

Never have I read a book that affected me like Hopeless did. I have felt conflicted about writing this review. I don't ever want to sway anyone from reading a book, ever. Having said that, just know that things happen in life. Real things that happen every day that we may or may not be aware of. Horrible, horrific and cruel things....

I'm sorry if this review isn't helpful. But it's honest and from the heart and hit me like a ton of bricks.
