    As the daughter of a drug dealer, Wavy knows not to trust people, not even her own parents. It's safer to keep her mouth shut and stay out of sight. Struggling to raise her little brother, Donal, eight-year-old Wavy is the only responsible adult around. Obsessed with the constellations, she finds peace in the starry night sky above the fields behind her house until one night her stargazing causes an accident. After witnessing his motorcycle wreck, she forms an unusual friendship with one of her father's thugs, Kellen, a tattooed ex-con with a heart of gold.

    Alyse Stolz says: "Not a love story everyone will love"
    "Difficult to see the wonderful among the ugly"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Bryn Greenwood and/or Jorjeana Marie?

    Probably not-


    What was most disappointing about Bryn Greenwood’s story?

    It was a tragic love story, but since I have a 14-year old daughter, I could not help but to identify with the aunt's perspective.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was disturbing to me; glad others enjoyed it but I did not.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to many, many audible books and this is my first review. I do not see much wonderful in this sad, disturbing story. I almost wish I hadn't read it! But i know I'm in the minority. Maybe not for women with teenage daughters!
