From the outside, my life was picture perfect. On the inside, something sinister lurked. I thought he was sick. I thought I could fix him. All I wanted was for him to love me. I was used and abused. Sold to the highest bidder. Unloved. Unseen. Unheard. Until Declan. He was my saviour. He helped me believe in the power of unconditional love. Then, he was gone. When love is lost, and there’s no hope left, how do you go on?

This book is worthy of all the stars. I've sat here staring and thinking of how to express my love for this book, this story, these characters. The array of emotions I experienced. This story is raw, painful, tragic. It's not a tale of just -boy meets girl (and to me it will never be about the boy at all)- love but, a journey of loss and heartbreak and survival. Julie Anne Addicott created such a vivid picture of her characters, they became a part of me, they will always be a part of me. The author wrote about certain topics, described graphic horrors without glorifying it, while evoking authentic emotions: anger, loss, sadness, love, hatred, healing, regret, guilt... I felt them all. I appreciate her attention to detail, the research she clearly did, the raw honesty that was felt with each word. This book has been added to my all time favorite reads.


Wow. I'll start by saying this book was a tough read, and I don't mean that in a bad way, in fact the opposite. This was one of the most raw and heart wrenching books I have read in a long time. There isn't much you can say about this book without giving anything away, but I will say that although I almost put it down a few times as it was so heart wrenching, I'm so glad I stuck with it. Grab a box of tissues and one click. You won't regret it.
