My Review

This novel had my emotions going. I laughed and cried. How do you know what is up and what is down after the traumatic experience of a parent dying? Ashley is left with questions, not only is she feeling the grief of her loss, but she is also angry. With herself, her family, everyone.  She went from being one the “popular” girls to not caring what they think of her. She wants to lash out, cause trouble.

The day she came back to school she met Jordan for the first time. Although she didn’t know who he was, he knew who she was. Then have a friendship that goes back and forth. What she is wanting to be able to feel less pain from her loss, he is unable to provide.

Then enters Colt. The “bad boy”. He is a football player that recently started her school. At first take he reminds her of her father in the way of looks. Though their personalities are different. With Colt she is able to rebel the way she has been wanting to.

The story goes through her friendships with these 2 boys, her best friend, and a girl she would have never talked to if circumstances had been different. She learns to work through her grief to get to a place where she feels better about her life.
