Synopsis

Imagine a social outcast: Me. (Luna)

Imagine a popular boy: Him. (Caleb)
Sound like the characters of a cliché story, right? Here, hold my hand. Come away with me. I’ll tell you my story, and you’ll decide. 
But I have a warning: Proceed at your own risk.  Since it’s a snippet of my life, I’m one of the main characters. And to put it lightly, I’m not the most likable person in the world, cue the earned label.  Also, unlike fairy tales, my story is real with a dash of sorrow and loss. 
How do I start? Once upon a time…? Shoot me now, please. 
The beginning? No, too boring.
Well, let’s start with the catalytic moment that set in motion a chain of events that changed my life, yet again.
As for a happily ever after? Sorry, no spoilers here. You’re going to have to figure that one out on your own. After you read my tale, it becomes yours, and as such, you’re entitled to your interpretation.
So, off we go! 
Fasten your seat belts. This ride may get bumpy.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Due to strong language and graphic sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Review

Fall Out Girl torn me to pieces and put me together again. It made me ugly cry, however, it gave me a smile that could be seen from miles away. This story is one person journey through a life that was thrust upon her. She either had to let it eat her alive or conquer it. There is no black or white, or right or wrong. There IS only living to see another day.
Luna has to deal with an ever changing life that molds her into the person she is. However, she keeps little pieces of herself secret and only a few get to see glimpses of it. There are many levels to her and each level brings you closer to her and allows you to see the world through her eyes.
Each of the characters are well written and gives the story depth and prospective. I enjoyed this book immensely even with the tears :).  This is on my recommend list and I gave it 5 stars!

 

Excerpt



Meet the Author

I have found that there is only one thing better than reading, and that is writing. I’m always torn between the two. I’m also frequently torn between chocolate and coffee. However, I emphatically don’t like the month of February, lies, and flies. For me, bravery is defined by the courage to do what we fear the most. I live in Connecticut with my husband and two children. Drop a few lines. I would love to hear from you.
