Book Description

Life for young Kara Maness Garrett is a nightmare. Trying to avoid the pitfalls of an abusive stepfather can mean the difference between life and death on any given day. Her only solace is the imaginary comet that allows her to escape the brutal reality. As she grows and matures, she befriends an unusual band of misfits who challenge her denial in unexpected and alarming ways.

After a horrific event threatens her ability to escape the hellish truth, Kara is forced to make a choice that could mean the end of not just her life but everything she holds dear. Will her friends be able to protect her from the one person who doesn't want the truth to be revealed?

This book contains strong themes and is intended for mature audiences over the age of eighteen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and intense story from start to end! March 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't help but write a review of this book because it was just a book that grabbed me from the beginning and I could hardly function until I finished it. It is not for the faint of heart. I will just say the theme of child abuse is heavy in this book. However, there is more than just that. Friendships,love and more await. I will be looking at this author's other work for sure! There is alot of suspence in this book to keep you glued to it as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars A novel unlike the rest. Loved it!! August 25, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
Captivating book that creates lots of different emotions as you read. This is the 2nd book I've read from this author and both are great. Couldn't put it down, I had to find out what possibly could happen next to this abused child and how she would survive each grueling situation. Storyline has twists and turns and takes you down dark paths that is gripping to follow. Story has a fitting end leaving you feeling satisfied that justice was served. A must read for the adult reader. Looking forward to more releases from this author.

It was not what I expected at all. Some parts were hard for me to read, but I still had a hard time putting it down.
