5 out of 5 stars
By Aimee L. Salter
I loved this book. Didn’t want to put it down. I enjoyed the descriptive style of writing. Also I think the author did a fantastic job with the exposition. It started off so great. There was no doubt in my mind that I was going to be up all night wanting to finish this awesome book.
The conflict of the story was basically introduced early on in the story, which not many books have that. So that was different for me.
Now Tully the main character is so wonderful that you are rooting for her from the start. Now I had so many emotions when it came to her, I felt sad and angry for her. But then I was mad at her, but I got why she was self destructing. And Chris the loveable main guy is just so nice and sweet that it makes you wish there were real guys like him. Her dad is just a coward. That’s all I will say about him. Now the climax of the story came towards the end of the story for me with Tully, Chris and her dad. Because throughout the book we learned so much. I’m very happy with the resolution of it all. And can’t wait to see if there will be another book to follow up with these characters. Or basically anything with this author.
I was seven when I realized that the world wasn’t always broken. That the way we live isn’t how it’s always been.
I beat the shit out of the little asshole who broke that news to me, and then ran to the Doc’s. Because she was always good for the truth.
Even when the truth was ugly as fuck.
I learned three things that day and it stuck with me, over the eleven years since.
Dusty Pate was fucking bully.
Punching someone in the nose is a learned skill set.
And the truth is better than a lie. Even when it’s ugly.
That thought more than any resounds through me as I stand on the rocking deck of a nameless boat in the middle of a nameless ocean, staring at a nameless coast.
Not really. All of them have names. But none of them matter and there’s no one left alive to give a fuck, so nameless works just as well.
“what do you think?”
I tilt my head just a little as Parker comes up behind me, reaching over my shoulder for my binoculars. He fits there, as natural as breathing, as familiar as the gun on my hip and the knife strapped to my back.
“I think we don’t have a lot of choices.”
He mutters a curse and from below, it’s echoed in a shrill furious voice.
“Any change in the princess?” I ask, my voice a low drawl.
Parker doesn’t take the bait. He’s still watching the coast and I take a moment to drink him in.
He’s still pale, even after the time on the boat, a kind of creamy paleness that begs to be dirtied. His straight black hair hanging in his dark eyes, and he’s tense. Coiled like a spring that’s waiting to burst, full of nervous energy that has been forced down and contained.
“No sign,” he murmurs. “We should go soon.”
The truth is—I don’t like unknowns. I can patrol up and down the south eastern seaboard, in and around the deadzone.
I’ve built my name on that. On my cold assessments and willingness to defend the Holdout.
But I hate walking in blind. And I hate it most when Parker is with me.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars!
Kaylee is the main person and it starts off with her needing to find someone who has a kidney match for her younger brother. She does a lot of things that don’t always seem the greatest idea, but does it out of love for her brother. So she is a outcast. Her best friend Nate always tried to help out.
Nate finds this social media website by accident…. Everyone at the high school joins. A series of events happen with different kids and them telling the site what they “need”.
Things turn crazy….
I found this book to be a discriptive style of writing and basically the rising was at the start. Climax was towards the end of the book. Resolution kaylee learns more about herself.
“No one gets something for nothing. We should all know better.”
So far I’m on chapter 5. I’m 💗 this book.
I have this book 4 stars out of 5.
