For once, I got the timing right and I’m reading a prequel before a series. This book blew me away with the raw emotion and realism. The characters are likable and real, thrown into circumstances that could happen to any of us (for the most part). They’re young and struggling with their place in the world in so many ways as everyone does at that age so they give you all the feels. This is a lovely story about friendship and hope in the face of trials and loss. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.

All while I’m trying to keep my best friends safe from my enemy and my alcoholic father off my back.
With every step forward, my past haunts me.

But I might be ruined beyond repair.
My hope is dwindling.
Until I see her …
