In the Wind by Author Lilliana Anderson is a standalone, New Adult Romance. It is a compelling story with a rare mix of intrigue, taboo, self-discovery, and love.
"...every time she opened her mouth, an intelligence spilled from her lips that I hadn't expected when I first saw her twirling in the wind and the rain."
Dawn Tucker has never fit in. She is unique and eccentric; adequate for her, but not her mother or her place of residence. She is what you'd call an "old soul". Zeke is her best friend. They are inseparable, making plans and sharing their dreams with one another. Shea is the new face in town. The third wheel. She is intelligent and is a thinker, but in reality is the antithesis of Dawn. These three personalities, along with others introduced along the way, create for us a story that is so unique and riveting that it cannot be put down.
"I forgive you for walking away, and I forgive you for not being there, and I forgive you for taking away my future. I'll make my future on my own, and I'll be fine because I'm letting you go now, just like you let me go that day on the beach."
I was hooked from the first part of chapter one, totally unprepared for what was to unfold In the Wind. It chronicled a story of coming-of-age and finding one's self. One thing that beckons to me when reading are characters that show development and change. Every character introduced in this story underwent life-altering transformations. I will say, unequivocally, that I loved Dawn. She was the most giving and selfless young woman. She had a way of passage to discover in order for her to become the woman that she was purposed to be.Read more ›
and sexual integrity.
Dawn and Zeke have been friends since second grade when Shea
drifted into their lives.
Like a storm she surged in causing havoc and destruction.
I wouldn't describe Zeke and Dawn as loners but they're definitely
not part of the popular in crowd by choice.
It’s Shea who opens their eyes and mind to the possibilities of more, taking them out of their comfort zone.
Dawn’s a hard character to like. She’s hard on herself and lacks
poise, confidence and lays blame on her mum when daddy walked
away. She is naïve when it comes to relationships and definitely not
your usual 18 year old. She doesn’t believe in casual sex, she
thinks sex should mean something.
She allowed a stranger masked as a friend to toy with her.
Zeke, I couldn’t figure him out. He protected Dawn but from what?
Her own disdain of the other kids she deemed frivolous.
He had to have known that Dawn crushed on him, and
yet he plead he had no clue.
It was a pretty depressing story with no heroines and even the ending had me asking; true love or the need to be taken care of.
Contains sexual content, drug use, crazed neighbors.
It was a coming of age story with a lot of different treacheries within it. Dawn was the main character and she suffered the same fate many teens do----she wasn't accepted and so she rebelled and became as positively different and unique as a girl could get. Her best friend had been that one friend since they were small and then it happened. Hormones appeared and the best friend became a desirable guy in Dawn's eyes, but she couldn't share that info with him because her own self image suffered to such a low extreme. Then when the beautiful neighbor moved in all kinds of challenges occurred. Did Shea feel attracted to Zeke? He certainly was drawn to her. Or was Shea a quirky girl who liked girls ...like Dawn? This only scared and enthralled Dawn at the same time and she called her own sexuality into question. There was teen age drinking, drugging and sex on the rampage. There was adult-daughter sex abuse and mental status was questioned. Questions of abandonment and betrayal roused angst and reflections. This dealt with many many issues and the sexual content was quite explicit.
Every bit and piece contributed to the suspense and the sorrow that three teens brought upon themselves and upon each other as they struggled to survive being a teen. And those who were responsible for them as kids, weren't the best qualified to lead nor guide them through to adulthood.
It is purely and simply human nature to hold onto the tiniest grain of hope and this story had plenty of heart blended in that hope. It was romance, it was angst, it was tense, and it was mind blowing....all rolled into one book.

Not a bad book. But his story shouldn't be tagged under lesbian fiction. And borderline inappropriate for age relations. Fix the tag Amazon.Published 4 months ago by Lori Hippensteel
