But Cam is unrelenting in bring Avery out of her shell and finally charming her into a date. But once Avery starts receiving threatening voice mails and text messages, she’s afraid the secret she’s kept for so long will come out and destroy her and Cam.
This book was very similar to The Coincidence of Kallie and Kaden, so with that said I had no choice but to like it, because I LOVED The Coincidence of Kallie and Kaden. Avery has had a terrible thing happen to her when she was 14, and she once considered the easy way out (suicide) but didn’t go thru with it. Instead she braved, judgement and cruelty from everyone around her including her family, even though it wasn’t her fault. That is mostly why I liked this book so much, a female character that is strong enough to pull through some of the most difficult times. I also, liked the book because in the end you see how not standing up for yourself and speaking out can affect others. I don’t want to say to much about what happened so I don’t ruin the book. But it was good and I would suggest it to others.
