Let me preface by saying that I actually met this incredible author this weekend:) I sat with a group of bloggers who sang the praises of this book and I thought to myself "Wow! This sounds good....lemme download it. I can read it on the plane ride home" I buckled my seat belt on the plane and I'm damn glad I did because what spilled out on the pages of this book had me in tears...literally! Thank GOD I had a window seat because as I read about Lyla I was astounded! I teared up as I read the torment and sadness this poor girl went through. This book opened my eyes to the world of bullying, ridiculing and the assessment of self worth. I will warn you this book deals with severe emotional issues.. there is cutting, loss of self esteem, drug & alcohol use and rape. Not my normal genre to read but I'm so glad I read this book! Your heart goes out to this beautiful girl who thinks she is worthless because some meaningless girls in high school tell her she is. The writer made you feel like you were in the room with Lyla...you could feel the blade cut into her skin and you could feel the pain she was going through. Then, just when she let her guard down and tried to trust and enjoy being with someone, BAM! She was a fool for believing.
Mary Palmerin...you have a real gift and I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed this book! By the end I was pumping my fists screaming "YES! Lyla...YOU GO GIRL!" I'm a new fan and I will follow you Mary Palmerin to the end of the earth with your beautiful, beautiful Lyla:) xxoo!

Wow! I'm not sure if my review will do this series justice. Sometimes what I am feeling inside I have trouble articulating into words. You really will have to read it for yourself to experience what many of the reviewers are trying to convey to you. I'm convinced once you do, you will be adding Mary E. Palmerin to your 'top author' list.

I can't believe how invested in this story I became. I was angry, disgusted, sad, but always hopeful. Lyla is a survivor. I was always hopeful that she would push through the tragic events she endured. But damn!!! How much can one go through before she feels the only choice is to give up?!

Throughout the series, you will meet other characters that play important roles. Some will have their own story to tell, but they all interconnect. Some you will love, and others you will love to hate. Your heart will break for a few and for others there won't be a Hell hot enough. You can't help yourself but get sucked in and will find it hard to put down. You need to read them in order to get the full experience of how dark, twisted and tragic this series is, but also you will find yourself feeling hopeful, experiencing love and your heart will be torn. You will feel every emotion you can imagine. You will be riding a roller coaster and want to jump off many times. Hang in there, hold on, and be ready for a very emotional ride in your life!!

Mary Palmerin has a way of telling tales that just makes your soul ache. Your heart will break for Lyla. She goes through the unimaginable; something no teenage girl should have to endure. And while it is gut-wrenching to read as things seem to get worse and worse, you just have to stick with it to make sure that Lyla is okay. You'll want to hug her and tell her to stay strong. This author gets you so emotionally attached to her characters, you just can't rest until you get to the end. Make sure you read the sequel to this novella, Succumbing to Scars and Sorrow, to learn more about Lyla and her journey of self worth and discovery!
Oh, and read with a box of tissues nearby!

4 Scarred Stars!

"I’ve always had this dark place within my soul and a sadness that never seems to disappear."

I didn't read the blurb, I went in blind. I'm wondering where the rest is? I'm thinking this is a prequel. Anyway, I wanted to see what else Mary E. Palmerin has written, I really enjoyed the dark in Gwendolyn VS The Band of Barren Hearts. I'm definitely seeing a pattern in her work, she likes to destroy her characters, she like to make us gasp with shock, and she's one helleva writer.

A story of one girl's journey through self destruction. Lyla lives the life of your everyday teenager... But what's sad is, it's the real-life we all don't talk about. The self doubt, bullying, and secrets that hold all the venom to destroy. A path of self harm, drugs, and abuse. Can she make out, find some form of happiness, or is she doomed to a future of pain in so many ways? I need to know what waits in the future. I would like to know about her past, and what was the catalyst to her state of mind. I need to dig further into her mind, play with it.

I was completely intuned with Lyla, her destructive ways resonated with me on a personal level. After I finished reading, I thought back to my past and remembered just how terrifying growing up was, especially with tragic events that lead us down the path of no return. This book definitely hooked me, I need more without a doubt. Mary E. Palmerin can spin a web of destruction.
