~ Review ~
This book was a little hard for me, but I did enjoy the story. Both Kelley and Lenny had issues. They were polar opposites.
Lenny is trying to get through high school so she can move away from her parents and start college to make a life for herself. She is pushed into circumstances that she doesn't want and that changes her. She loses a lot of herself in the process and it's a journey to get back to the person she was. She has a lot of struggles and even though she may appear weak she is silently standing up for herself still. Can she finally be the woman she wants?
Kelley has had one hell of a life. He's dealt with more in his short life then a lot of people do. I'd say he doesn't deal with it in the healthiest of ways, but hey we all deal with things differently. He had very few passions in life and Lenny soon becomes one. He doesn't know how to react to her because he's not used to having a girlfriend. He doesn't do relationships. After a bad decision they are forced apart, but will they find their way back to each other?
This book will have you wanting to hear more from Brie. I loved that she could be a friend to Lenny and prove that not all girls are backstabbers. I love Brie and the confidence she leant to Lenny to help he start to grow more. Without Brie I don't think Lenny would have been as strong as she was.
Brie, Chance, Ashton and Sawyer all need books. I have so many questions about what is going on between them all. I cannot wait to read the next book. Well I hope there will be another book.
