From Page One, we are pulling for Piper, the female protagonist. She is damaged when at age eleven her father dies and her mother and her mother's boyfriend brutalize her. The sickening incidents are narrated rather than shown as detailed scenes, for which I am grateful. Physically she escapes. Mentally she struggles to overcome the ruin of her sense of self worth.
Then there is Ryan, the male protagonist. He realizes his dream to become a movie star, only to discover that fame is hell. How can he escape his fans who are deadly in their devotion.
Ryan suffers from too much adoration; Piper suffers from too much hate. Both are driven to apparent self-destruction in their efforts to survive. They are self medicating by seeking refuge in drugs, alcohol, or self mutilation as a way toward normalcy. Salvation comes in the form of good relationships. Solid friends and relatives help to guide Ryan and Piper to wholesome living. One of several who help Piper is my favorite character, Nana, who is wise and compassionate, the kind of person I like to emulate.
Eventually Piper and Ryan have each other. The detailed sex scene between Piper and Ryan is a contrast to the narrative that glosses over most of the story.
The narrative quickens the pace, so the story never stalls.Read more ›
Evil intervenes again in her life setting her on a course of abuse once again. However, life has a way of making its own miracles and she finds herself fighting for her loved ones, can Piper survive the odds against her?
A hugely gripping read and I would have awarded 5 stars if it had been proof read and typos and grammar corrected.
As an avid reader, and self-proclaimed grammar Nazi, I do have to point out that there were quite a few grammatical errors and misspelled words. I had to re-read a few sentences for them to make sense. I don't know why this keeps being such and issue for authors now, there are proof-readers, editors, and hell, SPELL CHECK! But, even still, this book was such an amazing story, that those errors were easily forgotten. I have given myself a migraine staying well into the wee hours of the morning reading this book.
I completely recommend this book... and maybe a box or two of tissues... you will need them.

The story itself is great. I couldn't put it down. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the typographical errors. The punctuation needs some serious help.Published 13 months ago by Kelly Baumgardner

This first book got me hooked on getting the other two. Yes there are some errors when it comes to the writing, but overall, it does not take away from the story line. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Cheri Kruger
