I had mixed feelings when I finished reading this book. So before I did my review, I looked around the internet to find other helpful reviews in order to help me put my mind on track. Reading through several articles, I understand that this book received mixed reviews. I also understand that most of the negative reviews say that this book was more like an episode in Law and Order: SVU, or that this book had too much dialogue, and the plot was good, but execution was horrible. Having read this book, I think I know where those negative feedback were coming from, but I tend to disagree about this book being not much of a good read. Getting this book, I knew up front what I was going to face: Heavy issues and of course, heavy emotions.
While browsing through the bookstore, this book caught my attention because of its attractive cover, and then it kept my attention because of the synopsis: This Devon girl was the driven athlete, exemplary student - an all-around perfect teenager. But her seemingly perfect life was halted when she was found bleeding all over her living room sofa, and a newborn baby discovered in the trash near their home. Suddenly, her life full of bright futures does not seem too bright at all as she was charged with attempted murder. The second I read that, I was like, Wow something with psych stuff again! You know how crazy I am about books with some heavy issues and psychological problems, so getting this book was definitely in the bag.
