During the first disc, I wanted to quit, but I pressed on once I understood the conflict and was looking forward to how the author was going to resolve the issue. What a disappointment! This story had great promise, but the author lacked the ability to craft the story and its ending. Additionally, I felt the author was irresponsible in glossing over the fact that the two main characters took no responsibility or had seemingly little remorse for violent or illegal activity.

I’m not sure how to rate this book. Sometimes I loved it and other times I hated it. I like intense books, but this book was disturbing on many levels. The relationship between Abby (19) and Travis (20) is truly dysfunctional and unhealthy. But the story doesn’t try to present this emotionally manipulative relationship as healthy, which I respected. It’s gritty realism and emotionally charged and so totally screwed up and yet I couldn’t put it down. I’m surprised the library doesn’t have this listed as YA read.
