Jace is a good kid, guy next door, dutiful to his mother, respected by everyone he meets.

Well worth reading. A sadly plausible opening scenario sets a good kid on the wrong foot. Krista has created an intriguing character in Jace and her descriptive writing sets the reader firmly in place within an ever evolving story. While serious the story is not without humor and I suspect most readers will find themselves wanting more.

An action packed start to a story that leaves you wanting more and descriptiveness that draws you in, it's a compelling read. I enjoyed it and I'm sure others will too.

This is definitely worth a read! It's a sad and serious situation the author presents, and she has given us an intriguing character and a harsh journey, yet there are some amusing moments to be had because of said memorable character. Yes, you might end up wanting more, but that's okay. I don't want to give any spoilers so I will stop now. Cheers!

Very intriguing situation and story that evolves around it. Krista does an amazing job of making you feel like you are in the chapter by her descriptive scenes. You can feel, hear, taste and smell the environment that Jace is in .

Well worth the read!

Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed the story! I like the five senses and the more you use them, the more people can relate the surroundings for sure. :D
