Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing it deserves is forgiveness.

The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Judy Ohhh (judyohh) | 464 comments Finished this book! It was great! And I really appreciate how Colleen H imbeds these deep meaningful messages in her books. I am beginning to look forward to the messages. It isn't always about hopelessly falling head over heels with a guy/girl. She implants these deep messages, which transforms these novels from regular romance novels to something more. I can't describe it.

I read this, Nov 9th, and All your perfects back to back and this message theme seems to be a common occurrence in her books.
