This took me a little while to get into but once I focused and had time to just read it, I enjoyed this story of a young man who was abused and then estranged from his family through a variety of circumstances and who needed to come to terms with his life and making decisions based on his future, not his past. Themes of forgiving oneself and others, one person making a difference, taking responsibility for ones life, letting go of what can't be changed and moving forward are all part of what makes this realistic fiction a book that can't be put down once you know the character.

I recieved this copy through Net Galley for an honest review. It will be published Sept 1.
