My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There aren’t a lot of books that can make me cry that aren’t really designed to make me cry.
This book though? I cried all the way through. Some happy tears, some heartbroken tears. All good tears.
Michelle is a war vet. She’s got a clear case of PTSD, and she’s worsening it with drinking.
Carly was Michelle’s best friend, until Michelle’s father left with Carly’s mom. And then Carly stole Michelle’s boyfriend, and Michelle stole him back.
It was all very high school (happened in high school), but Michelle is back, and they have to face those issues.
Michelle isn’t dealing well, at all, and drinking. She’s asked to take care of an abandoned and abused dog. Together, they help each other heal.
Along the way, Michelle and Carly heal their relationship as well, and relationships with a couple of great guys.
Great read, very engaging and kept me sucked in.
