Overall, this story was okay at best. Shockingly, in one chapter there’s a part where a couple of 13 year-old kids (age 13!!) are engaging in oral sex. The young kids could have easily only been kissing and the story wouldn’t have changed at all. I’m sure the completely age inappropriate sex part was written for “shock value” purposes but I think that’s unfortunate and it wasn’t unnecessary. All the pieces seemed to fall into place too quickly. Showing empathy is one thing, but the crime being committed was assault and battery and the guilty person’s life actually improved after everything settled. In the end, everyone seemed happy with the choices they made, but I thought the story seemed incomplete.
