My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s a wonder many of us made it through our young adult years and I think its why I relate to this genre because I survived and these books are about people who have lived through hell at such young ages but manage to come out the other side. They live life with scars but through love they finally find their happiness. Now that happiness sometimes only happens in books, unlike real life, but for those hours your reading you know when you get to the end there is going to be a HEA. All but one main character in this book had either one or both of their parents be horrible human beings. Due to the damage that parent(s) caused, more pain was inflicted in their lives they had to overcome. This story is about 2 couples that did just that and also a few of their friends. There are some horrifically described acts of violence against two underage girls that even though it may be tough to read it is unfortunately something that does happen.
