My Review:

This book was such an emotional journey through hell for the main character Grace, yet Emily writes so beautifully I never felt depressed or like I didn't want to finish the story. Grace is an average college student who has blindly stumbled into the dark & dangerous world of drugs. Surrounded by other users, Grace feels herself being sucked into addiction & is too broken to stop it. After falling deeper into the drug induced labyrinth that has become Grace's world, she encounters situations she never thought she'd face including an abusive boyfriend & eventually an abortion.

Grace is eventually hits rock bottom & waiting there is a love that she's never known was even possible. Together they attempt to work through their addictions, but drugs are a difficult demon to fight let alone beat. Can Grace win the battle against her addiction or will she loose a chance at a brand new life??

What I Thought:

This is a very deep book with ending that isn't all tied up in a nice neat bow. It takes the reader through a world that most have never known & wouldn't want to know. Although Grace faces many serious perils she retains a childlike innocence about her. I couldn't help but fall in love with Grace & cheer for her to pull through her addictions.
