I loved this book. Some times I was screaming at Charlotte to leave him but I could see why she stayed. I really felt for her, he stripped her of every bit of confidence she had, but she also loved him so much.
This author really played out the parts of domestic violence well. There were times I believed it was a real story and wondered if Laura Adams was actually Charlotte.
A very well done i’d like to read more from this author
Wow! I got drawn into this book straight away. I loved how it told a story yet educated about domestic violence; very clever. I would suggest that high schools use this book in English lessons to help young women see how love turns to control and to help young men understand the difference between love, jealousy and abuse.
Can't wait for more from this very talented author. Well done on tackling a difficult issue.
Wow this book blew me away! It was so well written and I have never read a book that draws you into the story yet educates at the same time. I am passing this on to my eighteen year old daughter so she can read it. I seriously think this book should be in every high school library so that young women can identify red flags in relationships, and young men can learn how not to behave in relationships.
The main Character Charlotte felt so real and I connected with her straight away. As I read the book I rode the rollercoaster of emotions that she went through, the only complaint I have is that I could not put the damn book down!
A brilliant novel by this new author. I can't wait to buy her next book!
Caitlyn - A must buy. Fantastic read!!
My mum bought me this as a birthday present and I could not stop reading it once she (Charlotte) started telling her story. I feel this book is unique in the way the author weaves information in around the fictional theme. It educates while telling a story. I am passing this on to my friends and this author now has herself an avid fan. Brilliant!
