This, this was like, amazingly good. I loved how the two stories connected and then wow! To me, the story led me down some dark streets as the characters were dealing with some pretty heavy issues. Disturbing issues. These are the books that have my eyes glued to the pages, every word is ingrained in my head, and I can’t stop thinking about these individuals, that have consumed me, no matter how loud my life has become.
When her son Marcus gets accepted into the Academy, Frances thought her life was now headed into the right direction. Boy, she was wrong. Not fitting the Academy image, Frances finds that she’s not even close to the holding the ticket. After an incident, she slides further down the ladder until she meets Kate.
Hello Kate! Kate was also a new mother at the Academy. Kate, was one individual that you loved and you also hated. You hated her because she’s so perfect and you loved her because she’s so perfect. Kate has a son named Charles and teenage daughter, Daisy. Charles becomes friends with Marcus and is a huge help to him. As I was reading, I kept wondering when would Charles’ moment be? When would he turn on Marcus? Was he really as nice as he seemed to be? Daisy was a teenager with loose strings, she seemed to be running wild yet looking at Kate, you would think she would have this child under her wings.
As the families come together, their friendships build, the trust between them becomes dependable. With talk of their past and the secrets that they have kept hidden, it’s no wonder their current lives are in the shape that they are in. I enjoyed the book’s twists and I highly recommend this book. 4.5 stars
