"You care, Diary. So I’ve decided to tell you the story: why Mum disapproves of me, why my brothers would disown me. After all, I have no one else to tell it to, no one else who understands, no one who knows the characters as well as you. I’m sorry that it’s been such a long time."
A year ago, Roman declared his love for Daisy at South Beach. They were confident in their new start after leaving school and all the dramas along with it.
But life is sneaky like that. It always has other plans.
No one understands why Daisy suddenly leaves Twin Rocks for Africa; nor do they know why she returns so different. She’s distant now, angry and broken and holding a tiny secret that threatens to complicate everything.
And along with the ice-cold reception she receives, Daisy is above all terrified she won’t be able to find her true self again.
After reading the first book, I was very interested in what happened to Daisy. I felt like there could be more and indeed there was.
Plot: This story goes far deeper than what I thought it would be. Daisy has taken off to Africa leaving everyone to wonder why? I like that this plot goes on such a emotional roller coaster. It was exactly what kind of story I was in need of. The plot also dived into relationships and the brokeness of them. Some were life changing and others well, Daisy has to fight for.
Friendships/Relationships: After everything Daisy went through I felt as though Daisy lacked backbone. It was like people always told her what to do yet Daisy couldn’t even speak up for herself. I do understand that things have dramatically changed for Daisy but most of the time I wanted her to wake up and do something!! I became increasingly frustrated that she just didn’t do anything. She did eventually wake up but it took a while.
Ending: In the end, Daisy is able to find some answers as well as peace. I think a lot of what happen in Africa Daisy carried on her shoulders. Finding answers and moving on allowed Daisy to grow as a person.
If you read the first book you should definitely give the sequel a try. It did start off slow and a bit vague, but that part only drew me into the story more.
