From the New York Times best-selling author of It Ends with Us and November 9 comes a moving and haunting novel of family, love, and the power of the truth.

This Book Will Not Disappoint!

This was my first Colleen Hoover read and I was blown away! I listened to it and literally did not want to stop to do life because I wanted to know what was going to happen to these magical characters I fell in love with! And the narrator was PERFECT! Merit has an unusual family life. She lives in an old church with her father and step-mother, as well as her mother who lives in the basement and will not come out. Other characters include Merit's twin sister, her older brother, a younger brother, an uncle by marriage who comes along unexpectedly, and Merit's love interest, whom she believes to be her twin's boyfriend. Merit finds herself in the throes of depression and the story comes to a head when she writes a heartfelt letter after which she attempts to remove herself from her reality. Each character is so deliciously developed that you will feel that they are your personal friends. The reader will quickly become invested in the story which has a superb ending. I cannot wait to read more by Colleen Hoover, and luckily I discovered there is quite a collection to choose from!

THIS WAS A GREAT STORY!!!

This was a bit different for a Colleen Hoover book...but I really liked...it was sexy..but it was a really great story! Merit is a twin...her sister is Honor..their family is unusual and hands kind of a bad rep...This is their story told from Merits eyes..it also explores depression and how it is easily overlooked and the secrets a family hides....I really enjoyed..I think it was very believable..the narration was good...and I was drawn in from the very beginning!

I RECOMMEND!!!! :)

Wow what a family!’

This isn’t your typical CoHo book but what I loved about it was that ALL the characters were flawed and everyone was hiding their own little secret. The book also dealt with many controversial topics like depression and I think Colleen Hoover did well in incorporating this into the story. If you are after a romance novel then look elsewhere because it’s low on romance and high on family dynamics and relationships.
