    I really enjoyed this book Interesting plot line, and even though I predicted how it would end, I think it was written very well I very much want to know what happened after the ending and find myself wanting muchfrom how it finished Still would recommend, just disappointed by how it ended.

    I read the book in one day The story is quiet intriguing I can t imagine how Mackenzie survived what she experienced The ending helped The story is well written.

    ARC provided by NetGalley This story of hope and survival centers around Mackenzie, known as Mac, who was molested by her father when she was very young Now a teenager, she s basically just plodding along in life trying to forget Dad has remarried and her current family includes him as well as a stepmom and little sister Lily She has friends and a boyfriend, and is an active member in a bicycling club This was just an okay story for me for a couple of reasons First of all, I thought that wa ARC provided by NetGalley This story of hope and survival centers around Mackenzie, known as Mac, who was molested by her father when she was very young Now a teenager, she s basically just plodding along in life trying to forget Dad has remarried and her current family includes him as well as a stepmom and little sister Lily She has friends and a boyfriend, and is an active member in a bicycling club This was just an okay story for me for a couple of reasons First of all, I thought that way too much time was given to descriptions of bicycling, types of bikes, working on bikes, etc Not knowing anything about this, it didn t hold my interest and I really didn t think it added anything to the main story Butimportantly, I found it highly unbelievable that Mac had no inkling until the very end that her dad was likely molesting Lily, who she adores That was in my mind from the very beginning I also found it hard to believe that Mac could live such a fairly normal life alongside the man who had molested her for so many years Still, she was a decent character with an admirable sense of survival and a huge amount of love for her little sister The story just kinda fell flat for me

    From pretty much the beginning of the book readers know that Mackenzie was sexually abused by her father What readers and Mackenzie don t know is how long Mackenzie will keep hiding the truth from herself It takes Mackenzie realizing that the abuse might be continuing with her little sister before she lets herself remember the full extent of the abuse and deal with the situation While this reviewer thinks this is definitely a story line that needs to be told and read by many teens, the third From pretty much the beginning of the book readers know that Mackenzie was sexually abused by her father What readers and Mackenzie don t know is how long Mackenzie will keep hiding the truth from herself It takes Mackenzie realizing that the abuse might be continuing with her little sister before she lets herself remember the full extent of the abuse and deal with the situation While this reviewer thinks this is definitely a story line that needs to be told and read by many teens, the third person narrative writing style does not engage the reader as much as one would hope
