There’s not a lot I can say about this book without giving spoilers but it is a very emotional, raw, real-life book. My heart and emotions were so invested in this book. The characters seem SO REAL that you will feel everything Lily feels! Full of heartache, abuse, first love, tough decisions, and finding out how strong one can be, this book is honest and powerful. It’s hard to read, and I have an ache in my soul now, but I highly recommend.
These lyrics were stuck in my head throughout the book:
“Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found.”
