I was given a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I've listened to audiobooks a lot, but this was my first time doing so using audible from my phone. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use.
As for this book - I planned on listening to it throughout the week while I was driving to and from work. Yeah... that didn't work out. Once it began, I had a difficult time turning it off.
The main character, Rowan - a 17 year old high school junior, is living her life in constant guilt over the accidental death of her infant brother when she was 10 years old. She just wants to graduate high school, and go to a college far away from her family so she can move on with her life.
Between the actual story and the narrator, it was enthralling. Being able to use the audible app meant I could listen to it while I was at work - bad idea. Not only could I not turn it off, but I was unable to keep myself from bawling.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I agreed to review this book, and I'm glad I did. It was definitely a story that will stick with me.
