Eden used to be a happy girl, she used to be in band and paid attention to her studies. After she was raped she became a different person. She didn’t know how to trust people. She didn’t know how to form relationships.
This book through me for a loop. Eden went through something that was truly traumatizing at such a young age and she didn’t know how to cope. She made very destructive decisions and put herself in risky situations.
She wasn’t a likeable character. She was mean. She was cold. She was manipulative at times. She is the type of character that will polarize readers. Eden isn’t what people expect when they hear rape victim. It is why her story is important.
Trauma affects and alters people in many different ways. Eden was trying to gain some control over her life the only way she knew how. The book follows her along her entire high school life and the reader gets to see how the rape affects all aspects of her life.
My heart ached for Eden.
I gave this book a B.
I wish this book was longer that we got to see an epilogue. I want to see how Eden is after high school.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
