“Sickness swirls as I stare at him, wishing I had a pencil to drive through his face. I don’t, so I’ll have to settle for a knee to the sack.”
This is my first official experience with Suzanne Young. I’ve heard a lot of great things about her novels and decided to give this a try. If all of her books are like this, then I’m set for my heart to cringe and cry. The feelings from this book overwhelm you in a way where there’s no way that it can end.
Savannah used to be a normal girl, had a loving family, was popular and had the most amazing boyfriend. When her little brother Evan was found to have a disability, Mom split and dad let his life spiral out of control, leaving Savannah to take care of her brother.
Her boyfriend Patrick being the ass that he is says some wicked things about her brother and she stabs him with a pencil. Getting kicked out of school and being placed at an academy for trouble makers. Ruining her life completely.
Making two best friends at the academy, she thinks she has all she needs in life. Until you throw in a gorgeous rich boy who cares and an evil Aunt trying to destroy the only love she has in her life.
Savannah must overcome so many obstacles and not let anyone stand in her way or else they get the pencil.
This was one fantastic book. I was expecting such raw emotional power flowing through these pages. With the love she has for her brother, the stalking of her exboyfriend, the best friends who will shatter the world for her and the unconditional love of a complete stranger will change your mind about everything.
Not everyone has the perfect rose colored life. We all grow up in different ways and deal with different dilemmas.
We only have a short time on this planet and make the most of it, for you and your surroundings.
