At first, I wasn't so sure this book was for me, but as I got into the story and I grew to love the main character, Hattie, I found myself really enjoying it. I liked her best friend, Maggie, and her family, some of which you got to know better during the chapters that described her past. I also really enjoyed the twist in the story towards the end of the book. The type of books I usually read are fairly predictable (which I actually love), but I was genuinly surprised by this revelation, and not in a bad way. I feel it really added to the story. I also liked how the story ended, as it almost had a moral message behind it and showed Hattie's development as a character. I give this book 8/10.
