I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.
Yes, you definitely must read this novel! Told from two different viewpoints you will not be able to tear yourself away from this novel until the final pages have been turned. Restless, enraged, exhaustion, concern, elated, and compassion are just a few of the words that come to my mind when I reflect back over this novel. It was a fantastic story and full of emotions as I read about Adam and Julian. I thought of them as brothers for they were good for one another. Julian had let Adam into a part of his secluded world and that was a big step. Adam was thrilled that he was getting class credit for being a Julian’s friend but it became bigger than this.
As the plot thickened, my voice became more vocal as I screamed at my Kindle and soon I was beyond words at what was transpiring. It was painstaking to read for I was at that point where I wanted to quit and walk away, the story was too heartbreaking to read yet I needed to know if this truly was happening to these characters that only chapters ago were playing Truth or Dare. With misty vision I read further, the hairs on my arms were on high alert as the characters struggled to cope with reality. Realistic characters and a storyline that will have you staying up way past your bedtime make this a novel that you will never forget.
I received a copy of the novel from NetGalley and Disney Hyperion in exchange for an honest review.
