Publisher's Summary

Jovi felt destined to be haunted by her past and that her future was all too uncertain. She'd spent her entire life in New York City and would never have imagined moving to small-town Arkansas.
But there she was. In the middle of nowhere, living with family members she had never known. And to top it off, the now normal life she was beginning to live began revealing how disturbing and traumatic the last four years had really been.
Her plan was simply to keep her head down until she could sort everything out. Life in New York left her with a lot of baggage, and she had no intention of looking for a boyfriend while dealing with the healing process. She definitely wasn't trying to fall for the gorgeous, out-of-her-league, off-limits guy who happened to be her new neighbor. So much for intentions.

*I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review*

This is the first book of Casey McMillin’s that I’ve read or listened to. I have to say that I’m impressed. This was not a huge book, running time was a little over four and a half hours. But there was a lot packed into that time. The story of Jovi was one that sucked me right in. Starting with sitting in the therapists’ office because she hasn’t spoken for days, is an interesting was to start out a book. But it totally worked!
Jovi had a hard life, but she doesn’t really think of it that way. She takes ownership for things that 1. Most people wouldn’t and 2. That she shouldn’t be taking ownership for. As a result of these things, she’s a complex, twisted up, confused young woman who thinks she’s got her head on straight. But don’t we all at 17??
The story follows Jovi over several years and it takes us on the journey of her learning that she does have some issues, how to work through them, some wrongdoing (of course), and then a great ending that made me have a few happy tears welling up.
The narrator was great in this book! Raquel Vargas did a great job of flexibility with her voice for different characters and different moods of the story. I was extremely pleased with the narration of this story.
I give both Ms. McMillin and Ms. Vargas 5 STARS on this book! You wrote a great one here Casey McMillin! If you wouldn’t mind, please keep it up! Thank you.
