There is a gaping hole in the middle of Lonna's memories of the worst night of her life. Her body told her how it ended, but the details leading up to her lying hurt and sobbing on the bathroom floor have been lost.
How do you move forward when you’re not sure what you have to move on from?
How do you get your life back on track when you don’t know what happened to send it off the rails?
She makes a connection in the unlikeliest of places. Their bond is immediate—their pain similar and, at the same time, vastly different. As they work independently to recover from invisible wounds they are not ready to share with each other, they find their path to healing may leave a fiery trail across the landscape of what used to be their lives.
“Something bad happened, but try as I might, I couldn’t pull the memories to the surface. A concrete block of shame and regret settled over my chest and tears rolled down my cheeks. The memories were gone, but the blackout of the night before brought me no comfort.”
I read this back in November/December for Olivia. It’s been on my mind ever since. There was something about this story that would not let me go. I would be going about my day, and then something would hit me, and I was thinking about it again. I connected with these characters, mainly Lonna, and I think that’s why this book will always be in my heart.
“I don’t want to remember you as the girl who broke my heart.”
“I have no intention of being the girl who broke your heart. If I’m being honest, I want to be the exact opposite. I want to be the girl who stole it.”
Olivia’s writing is so skilled that she can pen a story that becomes a part of you. It’s in your heart, on your mind, and always a part of you. She only has a few books out, but each one she poured her heart into it. When you read her stories you can tell she gave everything to it. I love her work, and I can’t wait for the next book.
I can’t recommend this book enough. This is in my top ten for the year, and I hope you check it out soon.
