Most Helpful

very enjoyable, hard to put down

I really enjoyed this book, I could hardly put it aside. It was realistic in it's portrail of the struggles one faces as a result of abuse. Yet the message of hope was evident. I quickly fell in love with each of the girls and wanted the best for each. The narrator did a good job over all but her voice seemed a little too mature for a story about young women.
