Toni Aleo has made me uglycry! Let It Be Me is gritty and real, and I literally felt my chest clench upor found myself holding my breath while reading so many parts of this book.Violet's story is heartbreaking--but also beautiful, hopeful--so have a giant boxof Puffs on hand while reading. Highly recommend!

Toni steppedoutside her penalty box to deliver a hardcore, gritty novel. Let it be Me isabout personal struggle and protecting those you love even if the end result isyour own demise because when you love one so fiercely you'd rather take theblows instead of seeing your loved ones hurt.
Let it be Meis so intense, raw and poignant that I had a constant ache in my chest.
This isn'tyour normal Aleo book, no this is something more. Fans will see a new side ofToni!!

I love howMrs. Aleo tells this story, it is unique because it is not her telling you astory, it is the character's inviting you on a journey. You will think aboutthem long after the last sentence is read, the mark of a great novel. Althoughthis is different than her previous work, I feel it is one of her mostbrilliant. 5 stars all the way!!
