Some truths can leave you breathless...
Two years ago Ree Coleman’s life imploded, when her life was taken away from her. Now Ree is a "living dead girl", trying to survive each day, when it’s just a struggle to breathe.
After the unexpected death of her father, Ree and her family lose everything. As they are forced to leave the rich Upper East Side, they find themselves living in the slums of Bronx. Ree must figure out ways for her family to get by, and she tries to accept her father’s death. However, his death prompts many questions, including what really happened to him.
Meanwhile she meets Logan Marquez, a boy with a dangerous reputation. Knowing that boys are dangerous, Ree tries to stay away from him, but Logan insists on trying to earn her trust and friendship.
Soon, dark and dangerous secrets are revealed, and one explosive secret will shatter both their worlds.
Due to heavy subject matter, graphic scenes and sexual content this book is intended for mature readers.
Bell's writing was good, I found myself easily lost in the words and in Ree's life. It was definitely an emotional read, yet was perfectly balanced with humor. I found the plot at times had too much going on, it seemed that the story started going soap opera-ish toward the end. Overall, it was a good, short, emotionally charged, dark read.
