This book was such a grabber that I had finished it before I knew it. This story is take from Zoe’s diary. From this book we find a tee, Zoe dealing with more than she should have to deal with at her age. The first thing she has to deal with is her neighbor and brother’s friend Kirk. For some reason he really likes to bully her every chance he gets. He looks for opportunities when Zoe’s brother is not around to protect her.
Things take a turn when Zoe’s brother is shot and killed by Kirk. He claims it was an accident. Zoe and her family believe otherwise. From here it seems that Zoe’s life begins to spiral out of control. She begins to make some bad choices. She deals with more catastrophic events. All of this leads to another tragedy for the family.
This is a must read book. It will keep you asking, what else can possibly happen to this girl and her family? Be sure before you read it you are ready for the answer to that question. This is a definite must read for those who like coming of age stories.
