The same questions whirl round and round in my head: What does he want from me? How could I have let this happen? AM I GOING TO DIE? 17-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with table, pens and paper - and no clue how she got there. As Grace pours her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she's tried to forget. There's falling hopelessly in love with the gorgeous Nat, and the unravelling of her relationship with her best friend Sal. But there's something missing. As hard as she's trying to remember, is there something she just can't see? Grace must face the most important question of all. Why is she here? A story of dangerous secrets, intense friendships and electrifying attraction.


For some reason, and I don’t know why, I thought this was a paranormal book. It wasn’t. Instead it was a great book that captured me, that I had to keep on reading till the very end. It enslaved my soul, sucking me to the bottemless pit of doom. Yes, this book had lots of drama in it that it left me with a book hangover.
The storyline is filled with a secret, betrayals, and a love lost. I can say I enjoyed this book very much, but sometimes the drama got to me. I just felt like going into the book opening the characters life and slapping them. Then again, the book was engaging enough that you held on listening to every secret told, every betrayal exposed and a heart breaking.
The characters themselves were just whacked out. They were horrible people to each other. I mean, some of things they did made me think, why even bother? Move on! Then again, the characters created enough drama to last me a lifetime.
What I liked about this book is the main character, Grace. The author, Ms. Clarke did a great job creating a character with flaws. This character was messed up from the very beginning till the end. She could only take so much. So much has happened in her life its no wonder she acted and did the things she did. Grace, I feel, at the end, really learned so much. I can only hope that Grace will see things differently.
There was lots of sex (implied), cursing, drinking, and cutting. This book is a great book about a girl who goes down the rabbit hole, falling into an oblivion of hell, that I can only hope she can come out of. Not sure what else to say other that this book is filled with so much drama, your head will be spinning.
I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!



  1. I couldn’t get into this one. I think it was the dramatic characters. I agree they were horrible to each other. Glad you enjoyed it Savy.

    Based on the blurb, I can imagine why you would think it’s a paranormal novel. I thought so too. But I think that’s such a great twist. 🙂

    @Nic, sometimes I had to put the book down just so I can breath!

    @Kate, Yeah, it was one heck of a twist. I wonder if there’s gonna be a sequel?

  4. Well, I’m with you… I thought it was paranormal as well (and no I didn’t have a reason either!). I can see how this one could be very emotional. Now I have to look at this book in a different light! Thanks!
