My Favorite Character/s: Emily, a girl who was raised by her grandparents was a pretty normal life with them. But she is wanted to find her parents and I loved reading about her looking for them and her surety that she would find them one day. Her role in this book was sweet.
My Verse for Emily is Colossians 1:11
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: This book was interesting and I enjoyed the look into all of the characters lives and their struggles. I liked the ending though I didn’t care too much for the beginning of the book and it took me a little bit to get into it though once I started reading and enjoying it more I loved it. I rented a collection with this and the next book on my online library and am so happy that I can just start reading the next in the series, Kingsbury is most definitely a favorite!
Warnings: There is unwed teen pregnancy and the consequences of that. A character is shot.
