If you enjoy books that don’t wrap everything up nice and neat, leaving some things to ponder, this book is definitely for you. It has a few cliffhangers at the end some readers will hope for a sequel. I hope there isn’t one as I feel it would ruin the book, plus I believe the author wrote it in that manner for a reason. It makes the book more realistic – you don’t always know the outcome immediately, if ever.  This story wasn’t as emotional to me as her latest novel, There will Come a Time, but I loved it. I’m sure it will affect every reader in different ways. Readers will probably also envision the ending differently and that is okay too. If you like the Crank series by Ellen Hopkins, you will enjoy this one.
