This book landed in my lap thanks to my co-worker.  She is obsessed with buying all the newest releases on Amazon and since she shares, I reap the benefits and get to read them right after her!

This is a tale of 2 sisters who went through a very traumatic event in high school.  On the night of Cara’s high school graduation party, her boyfriend Jesse dies in a horrific accident while her sister, Anna, is driving.  Anna gets put in prison  and Cara goes on living her life.

Anna is never the same again.  She has money problems and a drug and alcohol problem.  Cara is always there to save the day, often putting her own family on hold while she runs to rescue her sister.  As the story goes on we start to learn why Cara is so eager to help her sister and details of what happened the night Jesse die come to light.

This was a twisted, twisted read.  Things are not always as they appear.  The ending?  Wow.  I hate to say it, but, the bad guy wins in the end.  This book will have you reading right up until that point though.  Some of you will hate the ending and it will make you want to throw this book and others of you won’t mind.

Personally, this book was a quick read and while I was not necessarily a fan of the ending of the book, it was still a thrilling, enthralling read and for that I am giving it 4 stars.  It is a great book to read if you are short on time and are looking fora quick, mind twisting read.  Trust me when I say you will almost feel betrayed by some of the characters in the book.  Let me know what you think if you pick this one up!  Next week I will be reviewing Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate!
