Some truths can leave you breathless...
Two years ago Ree Coleman’s life imploded, when her life was taken away from her. Now Ree is a "living dead girl", trying to survive each day, when it’s just a struggle to breathe.
After the unexpected death of her father, Ree and her family lose everything. As they are forced to leave the rich Upper East Side, they find themselves living in the slums of Bronx. Ree must figure out ways for her family to get by, and she tries to accept her father’s death. However, his death prompts many questions, including what really happened to him.
Meanwhile she meets Logan Marquez, a boy with a dangerous reputation. Knowing that boys are dangerous, Ree tries to stay away from him, but Logan insists on trying to earn her trust and friendship.
Soon, dark and dangerous secrets are revealed, and one explosive secret will shatter both their worlds.
Due to heavy subject matter, graphic scenes and sexual content this book is intended for mature readers.
Boy or boy this warning ain't kidding. Mature readers for sure. Heavy subject matter, completely, heavy and dark. Not in a bad way though. This book is so deep and dark and heavy, WOW! I had no clue how dark it was when I started reading it, but I was hooked from page one. This is serious content, but what an amazing, heartfelt, tragic, happy story.
Two years ago Ree Colemans life changed, and I'm not going to tell you what happened to her, you need to read the book. But its heavy. This girl is so damn tough, she inspires me to be just as strong.What happened to Ree would kill many many people. I loved reading about how she found strength, or whatever she calls it, to live, and move on. Her dad and little brother Sam I think had a lot to do with that. Every chapter in this book was so moving to me, I cried every chapter. The depth this book has is amazing. Real life issues and real life solutions.
As soon as we meet Logan, I love him instantly. There are very few guys in the world like Logan. I hope to one day meet my Logan. Like Ree, he is also damaged and broken. With that, that's where Ree learns to trust again. It isn't an easy road, but the journey they take together is so real, and believable.
There really aren't adequate words to describe how much I loved this story. I could read it over and over again, and still feel all the emotional moments the same as the first time. Ree's story is tragic and heart breaking but inspiring. This story is so real that I felt like I was Ree. Everything that happened to her, I was there with her in the book. Not that this has happened to be in life, but you get so sucked in, its all you can feel. I was always thinking about this book when I wasn't reading about it. I LOVED THIS BOOK!! This book is by far my most favorite book I have read!!!
