At first looking back on this book, I thought that I liked it. But then I thought about my feelings as I read this book and I changed my mind. Sure it wasn't awful, but I wouldn't call it a must read.

Alright so for the sensitivity of the topic Allison J. Kennedy was writing about, she did a rather okay job, but the first thing I realized looking back is that May O'Hara never actually had a choice to make. She toyed with the idea of keeping her unborn child, as I was reading I even thought that she did, but even from the beginning, she knew what she was planning on doing. Okay so maybe you can argue that her choice was about moving on and loving someone after being raped, but I don't believe that she made that choice either... she fell in love and she didn't have a choice in the matter because that's kind of how love works.

But at the same time, I liked the book, just not a whole lot. May's feelings seemed very realistic (though that one friend of hers is a b****) and it was so touching how Elijah was able to help her through it.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that this book wasn't for me, but that doesn't mean it's not for you.

The author tackles the emotionally charged topic of rape & abortion with love, compassion, incredible insights, understanding, and without judgements.
It's painful and heartbreaking but it grabs you. An extraordinary, beautifully written story and one I will not soon forget, long after reading the last page.

The author included an interview at the end of the book where she spoke about writing to heal. The entire interview is a must read!

A brief example of what she said, "I wrote this book because at least some of it is based on personal experience.........." "I write to process things. My "choice" has been processing for many years, and in writing this book, I did feel myself beginning to heal."........"this was just a stepping-stone to that healing."

As I was reading the interview it confirmed what I had been feeling while reading this story. Only someone who had some personal experience/insight with the topics would be capable of writing this profound novel.

Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book even though covering tough subjects, rape and abortion, was amazing. The story was heart wrenching and written so well. An emotional read that will stay with me for a long time. I will be recommending this book to many of my friends who like to read about real life stories and topics.

I received this book for early review through LibraryThing giveaway but this in no way swayed my rating and review of this book. It is truly a five star book!

This book takes you through a difficult and hard journey of a young girl, trying to overcome a series of tragic events. The author does an excellent job in describing a teenage girls thoughts and feelings. Throughout the book you will encounter plot twists that will capture your attention.
