Publication date: September 29th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Sixteen-year-old Bella Kynaston has been the victim of a brutal rape, by someone she can only describe as ‘the scar-faced man.’ With little recollection of what happened, she must somehow rebuild her life. Being the person she once was proves more difficult than she imagined.
To complicate matters, Bella has just met Jeremiah Detrone, the new guy in school. He’s attractive, funny, and smart. All things she’s ever wanted in a boyfriend. Too bad she’s conflicted over so many unexpected emotions. Without realizing it, she falls down a rabbit hole and begins walking a dangerous line between addiction and self-preservation.
As Bella works together with the police to bring her attackers to justice, will she be able to see it through to the end? And even if she does, will it only bring her more pain and misery? Or will she find an anchor in Jeremiah and figure out how to move forward?
Wow! This book will definitely keep you on your toes. It has a LOT going on in it’s pages. It is gritty and dark and I would probably say this is closer to New Adult than Young Adult but nothing graphic is described in any particular detail. The cover is what initially drew me to this book and I don’t think the book disappointed either!
Initally, there was a lot of world building and questions forming which helped to build the suspense of what was to come. The author carefully exposes parts of the plot to give you something but not too much in one go. I found this kept me reading page after page.
Just as the story really gets going and you start gaining some explanations for the things going on in Bella’s life there is a major cliffhanger! I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series as I believe they story line is only going to get stronger and more interesting!
