Story: When I first started reading this book, I knew I would like it. I didn’t think I’d fall in love with the story. I will admit that I was convinced that I’d find parts really redundant and annoying. I am happy to announce that I was wrong on that. This book is so unique. It’s deep. I really loved a very important message that is highlighted in this story. I think it’s something that doesn’t get addressed enough. I get it though. Look at the struggles women face when they talk about it. I’m sure it’s worse for male victims. 

Characters: Kyle and Rebecca are very happy together. Things couldn’t get any better. They are content with their lives. Then Kyle’s photo shows in a magazine Things completely change from there. They are still very much in love, but they find themselves with many obstacles in their way of peace. I really loved both of them. I loved Rebecca’s friends too. I didn’t really care for Kyle’s family. At least not in the beginning. My opinion changed towards the end. 

Critiques: None.

Final Thoughts: My initial thoughts on this book weren’t at all a reality. I am so happy to say that I was completely wrong with my expectations. I loved this book. I loved the messages. I loved the hope that displays through the book. I really recommend this book. I will probably read it again at least once more in my life time.
