Emotional, Gut Busting, Tear Spilling Read!
I absolutely loved both book 1 and 2 and if you like emotional, gut busting, tear spilling reads then these books and this author is a MUST read in my opinion…
Ms. Meyer has created a story with emotion rolling off the page…
Ms. Meyer has created a story with emotion rolling off the page, speaking of survival after dark times. Rowan grows a great deal, and the way she confronts each relationship in the book is really believable.
I think that these books can give a very real look at life to teenagers…
We see throughout the novel that Rowan struggles with cutting in order to deal with life and her emotions, and we know that there are teens out there (probably far more than we want to believe) that turn to self-harm when they do not know how to handle life and their issues.

Book #2 in The Rowan Slone Series
Appalachian teen Rowan Slone has left her dysfunctional, violent past behind. She’s ready for her senior year in high school, she has a new job that she loves, and a safe place to call home. Rowan is close to achieving everything she’s ever wanted—a sense of family, a sense of purpose, and a sense of self.
But there are cracks in Rowan’s new life as relationship issues threaten to send her future crumbling to the ground, including managing self-harm impulses. When her long-held secret is discovered, Rowan must find the courage to fight for the most important thing yet—herself.
Seven years ago, an innocent act by Rowan Slone turned her life into a nightmare. Since the age of ten she’s lived with the burden of her baby brother’s death. Now she is seventeen and all she wants to do is graduate high school, go to college, and escape the loveless family she has endured all these years—the same family that holds her responsible for his death. But no one holds her responsible more than herself.
