” After all those years of pain and fear, after all those years living with anger and hate, there was light ,
The light was right within me”
This sentence alone is enough to tell you what kind of person Karolina is , a ray of light in a dark twisted world , my heart ached for her throughout this story and prayed for her , by the end of the book and after each page turned , my admiration for her grew , a kind person and a strong spirit . and now as an amazing author who wrote
such a wonderful book i have that much more respect for her .
Some of the people who took part in this story made my blood boil , from the abusive dad , to Tom . The mother too , yet i was able to like her by the end of the story . but it truly makes you wonder how such people live with themselves . abuse is a daily thing in some people’s lives all around the world , physical and mental , whether it’s against men , women or kids doesn’t change how disgusting it is , my heart and thoughts goes to the victims .
Yet there are others who restored my hope in humanity , Cross , who was an amazing person and good to Karolina , The teachers in her new school ….
Karolina and her love for her mother and life is inspirational .
The writing style is very simple and easy to dive into , i was able to finish this book in one sitting ,
knowing these events are true made the process of reading this that much more intense and enabled me to put it down , even after i finished it it stayed with me .
I’m starting to feel like i rambled a lot , but there is so much i want to talk about ! yet i don’t want to spoil all of the events . I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys interesting , easy reads with intense events.
and i would like to thank the author for providing me with a copy of this book .
