's review

really liked it

4.25??...haha The writing was good and there was a good flow to the story for the most part.

Candace grows up with a family where image is everything. In her senior year of college she tries to break out and have a little fun instead of always taking the safe route. Her world falls apart when she is attacked and tries to claw her way back into the world. She withdraws into herself alienating many close people in her life. Ryan comes into her life and he attempts to get her out of the funk she is without even knowing what that funk entails.

It was a pretty good page turner for me. I really liked the characters in the book and it made me want to read more about them. The book started out with a bang and then I felt like the middle drug out a little as I was waiting for the big reveals. The ending felt anticlimactic with how I would have liked it. There were some things that I wish were resolved but all in all I didn’t hate the ending.

Some of things that bothered me may not bother you. I found myself rooting for Candace to claw her way back into life. I was rooting for Ryan to be the one to get her back. Her friendships felt real and the betrayals of those friends added some real conflict.
