This was my first time reading a book by Meka James. This author takes you on an emotional roller coaster starting at the beginning of a book all the way to the end. She tackles post-traumatic stress disorder, domestic violence, self-worth, healing, and therapy.
While reading this book I felt like I was inside the story living the life with the characters. The emotional healing and the dialogue that takes place between friends, only makes you route for each character in the story, their emotional and physical well being. I am looking forward to reading the next novel from Meka James.
