A sister she had no knowledge of. A story full of surprises you will not soon forget. I RECOMMEND to ages over 18
Wow, what an opener!!!! It is a damn good book. (Sorry for the language). Who would have thought the ending would end the way it did. It is sure an eye-opener and even though people do change for the better, your past will always catch up with you and so be it. The main character did what she had to do to get through stuff and yet, it just keeps throwing lemons at her but boy, she deals with it very well. What doesn't kill you will make you stronger. It also educates about a disease that not many people know or care to know more about. This is a good way to do it, in a book.
This was a free novella offered, so I figured why not. I can't even begin to describe this book. The title of this book could not be more accurate. I have no idea what genre this would fall under. I went into this book having no idea what it was about, and now that I'm finished I'm in awe. This was a very strange book that I could not put down. It flowed so well. To say the story was original would be a major understatement. At the end I was just left speechless which is why this review is so void of any detail; I don't even know where to begin. Just WOW. SOOOOOOOOOOO different and can't quit thinking of it! Great writing style.
I got this book for free, and I don't remember what genre it fell under, but I'm sure it didn't tell half of it. It's a very "complicated" story, that is 100% not my type of book. However, I still read the whole thing and would definitely recommend it to my friends who like totally unpredictable novels, which should show how good the book is.
The story did feel rushed at times, the book a bit too short for the story, and the dialogue wanting now and then, but overall a very good book.
Not my genes! But one of the few books like it I would enjoy reading or even finish reading at all.
This was an amazing piece of work from a first time author. After reading this novella, I had to check to see if she had written any other masterpieces. I cannot wait to see what comes out of her mind next. I felt as though this novella had the perfect pace that made the reader want to continue. The characters gelled well with each other and complemented each other perfectly. I would suggest this to anyone that wants to have a great read and open their mind to a disease that cripples both the mind and body.
This isn't a really long book, but the story is compelling. Family ties that are strained, dealing with issues and illnesses you don't understand, and not really wanting to shoulder the responsibilities. All of these elements are in this book along with an amazing twist at the end that you wont see coming, and it will knock your socks off!! A great short read.
I absolutely loved this book. It was a quick read and very entertaining. I have known Tammy for a long time and had no idea she was such a talented writer!!! The story started out fantastic and I had a hard time putting it down. The ending was the best part though. Usually I can figure out the ending of a book , but not this story, kept me guessing the whole time. Bravo, keep up the good work!!
This novella held my interest to the point that I did finish the book. For me, interest was just building when the story came to an abrupt end. The author could use a good editor. The grammatical errors and typos were distracting. Not sure I would try another by this author.
