Author Name: Teresa Mummert
Publication Date & Length: April 6th, 2015
My life was meticulously planned and I refused to deviate from that path. While my peers were partying, I prepared for the future. Then a tragic event destroyed everything and I learned that while I was looking ahead, I forgot to live in the moment.
Starting over seemed impossible until I met Cara McCarthy, who lived every day like it was her last. She opened my eyes to a world of chaos and disorder. I loved every minute of it. She was also dating Tristan Adams, one of the most gorgeous men I’d ever seen.
The three of us became inseparable. Our parents were oblivious and soon lines became blurred, feelings began to grow, and someone’s heart was going to get broken. I hoped it wasn’t mine.
What appears to start off as rather a dark novel almost surreptitiously draws the reader into an almost voyeuristic awareness of what is happening. As the depth of feelings of both girls unfolds the reader almost feels like shouting to them to make them aware of each other but due to their own insecurities you can only continue to watch and wait.
It’s almost a documentary recital, that leaves you feeling as if, by reading on you, are intruding into their personal feelings, but in such a way that it is impossible to look away and not continue to follow their story.
Slowly as the truth unfolds this novel takes on yet another facet, one demonstrating the true meaning of, love, friendship and trust and this begins to lighten up the entire novel.
A truly memorable tale, written in an imaginative and original way. A really great read.
