Book Description

True love takes a dangerous turn for a high school “it couple.”

The perfect couple.
Good looks, popularity, football star, sweet cheerleader - they had it all... until a single moment changed everything -- forever.

Trade Winds High football star Gage Anders fell in love with Rainbow Hawkins the first time he saw her. Rainbow was the new girl at school, eager to make friends and fit in. Rainbow thought Gage was the boy of her dreams. Tall, blonde smart and funny. Her days are full with cheerleading practices, play rehearsals and of course spending time by Gage’s side. Trade Winds high schools called Gage and Rainbow the perfect couple. Until both their worlds came crashing down. In one swift blow.

3.0 out of 5 stars very disturbing August 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a disturbing story on so many levels. The e-book version was full of grammatical and typographical errors, and that was distracting. The "happy" part of the relationship was not very believable, the characters were not very charming even before all the negativity began. And overall, the story just left you with a sick feeling.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Taste of Reality June 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is a quick and easy read, but it does have a really good message. While abuse should never be tolerated and Rainbow should have run away at the first hint of it, the author helps you to understand why she hesitated. While the ending is tragic, hopefully someone will learn from the message.

2.0 out of 5 stars Compelling subject, but bad execution August 2, 2012
A Kid's Review
Format:Kindle Edition
I wanted to love this story, because it's such an important message. But unfortunately the typos, misspellings, grammar issues, and inconsistencies made it very difficult for me to read, let alone get wrapped up in the plot. The author needs a good editor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but no progression May 18, 2012
A Kid's Review
Format:Kindle Edition
When I read this book the topic seemed something important but as you read you got confused. Sometimes when you read the book Gage's diary would be Rainbow's and Rainbow's would be Gage's. At the end it says rainbow dies but you just read her diary. For beind a short story I would think that the information would have been a lot slower so you can suck in the story but alas it does not. Overall it was topic that needed to be discussed but sadly by someone who progress the idea in better way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good bones, needs flesh ( and a good editing). May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hope the author can appreciate my honesty and is not hurt or offended by this review, which is sincerely meant to help improve what is quite a good story. I know I would appreciate a well thought out three star review with good advice over an empty five star review any day.I enjoyed the story well enough, and agree with some of the other reviewers when they say that it may be enlightening as a teen read, but the grammatical errors pulled me from the story on several occasions. The biggest problem I saw was with the chapter headings named after one or the other of the primary characters: Gage or Bow. As one would expect, the ensuing chapter should be from that character's POV, but, PROBLEM, a lot of the time it was not. In fact, the very first chapter is entitled Gabe, which left me with an awkward few moments of trying to figure out who that was before I realized it was the main character's name mispelt. My advice to the author is to have an editor go over it and reupload a cleaner version. This was far from being a mess and an important moral was told. I would also include more of Bow and Gage's back stories so that readers can more easily relate to their characters. This story has good bones, just needs to be fleshed out and cleaned up and we can take it to the prom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing essential read December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, what a disturbing novel. Young love can be wonderful, but it can also be destructive and kids need to learn when it has switched from one to the other. This novel tells the tale and one day in the not too distant future, I'd like my daughter (12) to read it. This is rife with domestic violence, but is a powerful story of overcoming.
