About the Author

Growing up, Adrianne couldn’t get her hands on enough books to satisfy her need for the make believe. If she finished a novel and didn’t have a new one ready and waiting for her, she began to create her own tales of magic and wonder. Now, as an adult, books still make up majority of her free time, and now her tales get written down to be shared with the world. During the day, Adrianne uses her camera to capture life’s stories for clients of all ages and at night, after her two children are tucked in bed; she devotes herself to her written work. Adrianne is living the life she always wanted, surrounded by art and beauty, the written word and a loving family. As a young adult author, Adrianne James has plans to bring stories of growing characters, a little romance, and perhaps a little magic and mythology down the line for her readers to enjoy.

The Basics:

Paige is a runaway foster kid, living on the street, dreaming of finding a way to a better life once she's old enough not to be sent back. She steals when she has to but keeps a record of everything she takes so she can pay it back someday. When she takes on Noah, a new addition to the local homeless population, as an apprentice and partner in survival, the two of them get to work on making those dreams a reality together, but it's going to take raising their criminal ambitions.

The Downside:

The editing's noticeably rough (according to the author, a re-edited re-release is in the works). There are some issues with excessive telling rather than showing. Both Paige and Noah tend to announce their thoughts in a formal, matter of fact way that matches the tone of Paige's internal narration and drains them of some live human feel. Noah's choice to become a transient rather than return home to Greece is underexplored, and beyond being the decent, innocent guy Paige learns to open up to and trust, he's a little flat. The treatment of homeless people by the background characters feels a little over the top to me at times. Ignoring them, fearing them, watching them closer if you're store security, sure, but who the hell goes out of their way to throw trash at them? Do I have too much faith in humanity here?

The Upside:

Paige is much better realized. She’s a sexual abuse survivor who doesn't instantly forget what happened to her when it becomes inconvenient to the plot, fall blithely into the next available man's arms, and live happily ever after, which is very refreshing. We see her through a long, difficult process of taking back her life with Noah.

This book was very well written. You can tell the author did her research for this book! You can really connect with the emotions and situations in this book, almost as though it is you going through it. It left me wanting to know what is to come for all of the characters! I can't wait to read the next one!!

What an intense emotional read. This book was well written and I was able to read it quickly. In this story the author brings a taboo situation in the spotlight. Which I think more of this needs to be done. The only issue I had I almost felt like the story was telling people its ok to steal if your in need instead of asking for help.
