A girl witnesses her daredevil brothers’ horrific accidental death, and spends the next five years scaring away her friends, becoming a daredevil herself.
The cover and the description are what drew me into this book. This book had the goods to be one of my favorite books. But for me, there were a few things that I didn’t care for.
For me, it fell flat with the characters—they all seemed overacted, and none were at all likeable. After a while, it was hard to care what happened to them, and I ended up skimming the last half of the story. I wish these characters had something about them that was likeable, something that you could connect to—I might have liked the story a little more.
While everyone deals with the grieving process differently (especially given differing situations), Jaycee’s seemed extreme.
I find this book a little difficult to review, as I thought the layout was the best part of this book, the writing was fairly good, but the biggest problem being my lack of connection to the characters.
I received an arc copy of this book from Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review.
