My rating:


My Review: An amazing read with a fantastic cliff hanger!!! A must read!!! I was not ready for the heart wrenching ride that this story took me on. One page I was smiling and the next I was getting teary right along with the characters. It is a wonderful display of love and fear as a young woman tries her best to make a better life for her little sister. I was so thrilled with the fast paced roller coaster and could not even think of putting this book down! I cannot wait to find out what happens next! K. Pinson is defiantly an indie author to keep your eye on!! 🙂
