Summary: Sadie has always been the responsible one. Not like her older sister, Carla.
Caught up in a drug deal – wrong place, wrong time – Sadie has to take the blame to keep Carla out of jail.
Sadie was supposed to get community service, instead, she is sentenced to six months in juvie.
She has sacrificed everything for her sister. Can Sadie find the strength to forgive her, too?
I took this book on holiday to Florida this summer with me, and would relax after a busy day of thrills and absorb myself in the harsh, cruel reality of how everything goes wrong within seconds.
Seriously, this book was hard-hitting. Sadie, the protagonist is thrown straight into a world not meant for her, but for the actual culprits. Whilst we learn about her time in juvie, we also learn about what happens leading up to the sentence.
Her world, life and existence came crashing down, all because of some random strangers, and this just showed how much we should treasure life, because anything could happen. Make the most of now.
The writing flowed beautifully, and Tired Me understood everything.
But. There’s almost always a but. The ending was appauling in my opinion. Just why? What a dull ending to an exciting book.
Overall, this is a book that does show how life is precious and makes you realise how lucky you have it. This is a book I would recommend.
