My teen granddaughters and I read the book during the same time period. We had so much fun discussing the characters, the plot, and what we each anticipated would happen. The book flows well and keeps you in suspense. Jennifer did an excellent job with her first novel and my granddaughters and I look forward to the next one.

I am an avid reader of different genres of literature and truly enjoyed this young romance novel. I loved the way the author wrote in the oscillating perspectives of the main characters. The story was exciting and suspenseful with relatable characters. I am looking forward to the authors next offering, Solace.
