Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Buoni Amici Press and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Yeah, I don’t trust them.
Who are they? The family who takes me in after they catch me making a rare mistake. They offer me a deal that allows me to make amends while staying with them and working. I’ve never had a permanent home and I’d long since run away from the foster care system after my last “home” had someone using my back for a cigarette tray. My means of supporting myself? Whatever necessary. That includes anything and everything I needed to do to survive. That’s all my life has been about anyway: survival. And you know what? I’ve done just that. Survived. And thrived while doing so.
Then this strange family decides to rescue me. Though not for a moment do I need rescuing. I’ve made my life something interesting and important while remaining independent. I’m neither homeless, nor a criminal. I’ll do my penance in this small town of Silver Springs, but nothing will make me lose sight of the life waiting for me on the road.
I don’t trust their motives for a second and I’m ready at any moment for it to go wrong. Nothing is going to make me believe in them. Even as I meet Dani Dawson, who is a waitress in the café where I work and is dating the son of the family I’m staying with. She tries to show me a softer side to life. Still, I know that nothing lasts: not food, shelter, parents, friends, brothers, families, and certainly not love. Especially if you’re relying on others for it. I rely on no one but myself. Always have and always will. No matter what. So, I’m ready for it all to go to crap, but until then? Joke’s on all of them and I’ll take advantage of it until the very last moment.

My Thoughts:

Wesley does what he feels he has to. His story shows that you can’t tell what a person is going through just by looking at them. He gives a voice to those that choose to live life outside of what most consider normal – especially when it comes to young people. Dani can’t believe what she’s seeing. One character that’s important here is Tara. She sees something in people that others don’t. She’s willing to give you a chance in a world where society probably would just give up without lending a helping hand.

This book shows that either the author has a great imagination, knows where Wesley is coming from, or did a lot of research. Wesley is a strong character who will suck the reader in and keep you enthralled until you understand him. This is one reason that all the characters become important. We get to see Wesley go from teenager to young man and he sees that not all people are the same. I like that we get a chance to see how this young man perceives things.

Wyatt is a character that you will wonder about. Why is he acting as he is? What’s his story? I thought this was a great way to start things. As Wesley gets comfortable, that’s when things get revealed but it does make it hard to find the best stopping point. If not for having this book on tour, I may never have discovered this author. This book was totally different from anything that I’ve read in I don’t know how long. So saying this is original would be a true statement. I can’t wait to see what this series is going to reveal next.
