Okay, so i had trouble with this book at first because it was quite a slow start for me that i kept having to put it down and read something else, it wasn’t until about half way through the book did i start to feel more connected to Mia and her story and where i started to truly feel for her. 

The writing style was beautiful and so easy to get into that the paragraphs flowed quite well, it was really just the pacing i had issues with.

I enjoyed a lot of the characters, especially the adults who presented times of humour as well as seriousness which i just found BRILLIANT !

I also enjoyed the great emphasis on family that was presented and how family does not just mean those who was blood related.

I did have some issues with the layout of real time and then flashbacks as i found the flashbacks to be out of sequence which made things confusing and strange for me constantly. I also felt that the flashbacks were presented at each moment when i started to connect myself to the story and so it just brought me back to being disconnected and uninterested. 

The story line was really good and i loved the concept of choice in this book.

I overall really enjoyed this book and have so many things i liked despite my problems with it. 

I plan to read the second book in the coming months and will be doing an in depth series review on my blog 
so keep an eye out for that 

4 Stars!

Also this was my first time using tabs to mark fav parts :) I think ill only do it to some books though …
