Occasionally, the plot felt forced; particularly,

[A necessary part of this review, so I can't hide it.]
I could not comfortably accept the idea that a girl who lived feral from the age of eight could be dressed up and go to a night club in the city within a few weeks of encountering a photographer in the forest.
On the other hand, however, this same background made the dramatic ending believable.
On the plus side - very good editting in terms of grammar and spelling mistakes (I cannot recall finding anything aside from a misplaced comma or two) although the formatting was off sometimes when they engaged in conversation, indenting it all. Odd that.
It was amazing! I just, I don't know, it shows a lot of courage writing a story in this particular style. Why? Because of what the story is about and because that written in any other style would have ruin the effect of the story. That pacing of leaving some details unexplained, moving forward to more important issues, taking the time to the lot to really sink in before stirring it, yeah, definitely worked for me. Although, I have to say, and I'm sorry, I would've liked it better if the transition between Brinn's wild life to finding her way to her family again and starting over her new life, those chapters between the before and after, they just seemed rushed and even though I can see it happening, seemed implausible for me, too easy, not dramatic enough. But other than that, perfect.
Like I said, the writing was a mix of perfection and bliss...
The feelings, Brinn's fears, Justin's part in everything and again, the details that were not as important as the story in front of us left alone to their own devices, like windows open for our imagination to crawl in and do whatever it want with them.
So it shocks me that I got it for free because for being a free book it's not half bad. Not bad at all. So, if you have it and you are doubting...READ IT! I do not know if it will be for free again on the site but it does not harms the author your help through the action of buying her lovely book(s). Will I read another PJ Sharon? Of course! :D
And just FYI, I've been vague on details because I do not like spoilers so do not expect those from me. :D Have a nice reading!
