Shanice Williams takes readers by storm in this vibrant novel of romance and reality. The story of a young girl that finds herself relocated in the States, and the main attraction for the school playboy. This is a story with deep emotional dialect that readers will consume in one setting. The characters of Kane and Suranne are intriguing and relatable, so readers will feel interwoven into this heart racing read. From the description alone this novel was nothing the simple young romance that I had anticipated, but rather a intense read of love, loss, and acceptance. Awestruck is the best word that I could find to describe my feelings toward this debuting novel. Seeing that this was a young adult read I was surprised that the depth of sexual concept in this story. While I do not think that this author could have created as great of a story without it I would definitely be wary of the advanced concepts of this novel. Personally, I would recommend this read the higher spectrum of young adult readers, as well as, adult readers. Prepare to be overwhelmed by the emotional rollercoaster of this read, but sad to see it all come to a close. The conclusion was a wonderful twisted; it manages to wrap the heart wrenching story and tuck nicely into a happily ever after that readers will love. This author will intrigue and surprise readers. This is one to be on the look for in the future.
