How come there’s a huge gap between her and her best friend, Tahnee? The rougher side to life is not glossed over here, but nor is it used deliberately to shock. I’ll be looking for more from this author in the future for sure! That all could have been overlooked by me, if the novel had stayed true to it’s dark tone from the beginning.
