Heartbreaking.

Callie Novak is a track star and lives a good life, until one night when her world comes tumbling down! Her father and twin brother are killed in a car accident and when the truth comes out about the fact that her brother was driving while under the influence of drugs, it hits her hard. Digging into her brothers life, she finds that he was a drug addict, she realises that she knew the signs but with her busy life, she just didn't want to believe it. Now it's too late!

But Callie's life is about to spiral into the realm that her brother took and she can't seem to stop it. Things hit rock bottom for her and her life disintegrates, how can she find the strength to do what her brother couldn't? Will she face her greatest fear and admit she has a problem?

This was such a heartbreaking read. It deals with the harsh reality of drugs and the level addicts will go to to get their next fix. It's raw, it's gritty but it's also happening every day to someone. It's a hard book to read if you know someone dealing with any kind of addiction, but it's also a much needed one too. It gives a little glimmer of hope in the midst of darkness and shows that not all is necessarily lost.

As always, Ashley Fontainne knows how to tell a great story filled with emotion and one that will grip you till the very end. She has an amazing ability of making you immersed into all her books and this is no different. This book is a compelling, heartbreaking read and one that will stay with me for a long time!

I haven't listened to a book narrated by Andrea Emmes in a while and it reminded me what I was missing!! She has such an easy to listen to voice and can bring any book to life. You can tell that this book moved her too by her emotions while reading it. Definitely worth a listen!!
