OMG how many things can possibly happen to one person?
Towards the end I was screaming and cursing at this book. Because seriously, it made me that angry. I love Evan. I hate Jonathan. Never liked him from the begin. I can't believe that Emma did what she did. I want to slap so sense into her. I get that her life is anything but normal, but how could she do what she did at the end?????
Evan is perfect in every way, the most understanding ever.
This was a series I didn't figure I'd buy mor than the first book,. I couldn't stop listening to this series
I will say this book has you on an emotional roller coaster. I dont like emma at all, but I still want to know what is going to happen to her. So I guess book three it is.
This was an incredible book! I was only dragged into this one because I had already paid for the first, and was extremely unsatisfied with its youthful tone and slow pace, but had to see it through. I found myself hooked immediately with Book 2 and I was surpirsed when the 15 hours came to an end so quickly! Way to redeem yourself Rebecca Donovan! For those who are uncertain about the first book, just be patient and get through it! It lays the foundation for a suspenseful and heartbreaking fall where Emma finally hits bottom by the end of book 2.
My favorite scene was when Jonathan came in and saved Emma from the drug dealer. That guy is my kinda hero and I was completely distraught when, by the end of the book, not only had Emma NEVER said thank you to Jonathan for saving her, but she totally crushes him and sends him away broken and in tears. In that moment, although I also LOVE Evan, I wanted to choke Emma for being so cruel after all he had done for her. He needed her just as much and I was consumed with disapproval after realizing I couldnt jump into this story and smack her for her lack of compassion toward him! He was, afterall, the one who was around all those times when Evan ran off on his rich boy vacations. He was the one who saved her life...guess in her dramatic little world, that little fact escapes her. I was definitely turned off to sympathize with Emma's character after I realized she would not take one second to see what happened from Jonathans perspective, showed little concern for his wellbeing and injuries, and chose, childishly, to only see his rage in that moment without consideration that he had fought FOR HER. What a selfish and naive little brat. She has A LOT of making up to do in book 3 and there better be some real acknowledgement of Jonathans feelings and closure for his pain or I'm going to be so mad!
If you are struggling through book 1 as I did, just hang in there! The second book will leave you hooked and logging on to get book 3 within minutes of the ending! Happy reading!
Constant whining drama, so stupid! The first book grabbed me and as soon as it finished I was amazed there was another book.....cause she died? The second book is an ongoing nightmare of drivelling, sniveling, stupid, made-up drama! Avoid if you value your sanity.
i like book 2 more than book 1. it feels like emma will never catch a break. once again her story made me cry, made me mad, made me smile, made me confused and surprised... it is a rollercoaster of emotions so well written and developed by rebecca donovan.
Teenage, angst-filled girls.
Kate Rudd's performance was fine, considering what she had to work with.
Despite it's many good reviews, this book was clearly written for teenagers. It's filled with high school ridiculousness and agonizing situations all driven by emotional immaturity. I can't explain why I kept listening…perhaps I was hoping the Emma would grow up and stop being a martyr. I won't be listening the third book in the series as I've already wasted too much of my life on the first two.
With more than 1600 audio books to hitchhike along with, I've realized only now that I started "reviewing"...boy I need to catch up!
This one was really hard due to the additional turmoil the future holds. There's a bit of detachment that was weird, but SOOOOO many ups and down with kinks in a perfect plan that will definately keep you listening. Although..... the ending....oooohhhhh the ending......where's the third - NOW!
All business but contemporary fun!
This book describes the evolvement of Emma's life after the first book's horrific finale that literally took your breath away. Emma's struggles intensify as she finds herself in yet another less than ideal home environment when she decides to live with her mother until she goes to college. Her relationship with Evan is tested to the limit and suspense peaks by the end of story. I personally got exhausted by all her struggling but having read the series last book, I can claim that this drama prepares you for what comes next.
