I want to tell you all of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.
My life didnâ€™t start until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.
My new name, the name everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.
Four years after finding the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has built her new life on.
I really enjoyed this book in a lot of ways. It was an amazing story and I was glad to be able to read it. Yessi Smith is an author I'm going to have to keep an eye on. I fell in love with the characters, and how they adapted throughout the story.
That being said, there were issues that would have been resolved with better editing. Too often I was pulled out the story because of a spelling error, grammatical mistake, etc. There are also a few issues with content that, had they been addressed, would have easily made this a 5-star read.
All in all, I did find myself enjoying this story - despite the issues - and I am interested to read the next book in the series. I do hope that the editing issues are taken care of, because Yessi Smith has the potential to become an incredible author and I would like to see her reach it.
