This book brought back all the angst of being a teen or when my children were teens. The frustration of dealing as a “grown” kid but not having reached the maturity to match their adult size was well presented in this book. This is a true to life coming of age story.
Mike is the typical high school senior with all the usual issues as well as a mess of a situation thrown in. His recent ex-girl friend just told him she is pregnant, his father has his whole life planned out, and many older brothers seem to be putting a lot of pressure on him. Mike loses control and himself.
I feel the author did a really good job of pulling you into Mike’s life and helping the reader experience the challenges, questioning and annoyance that teens deal with as they become adults.
Due to the subject matter I would suggest this book to high school age as well as adult readers.
The trouble with trust is once it’s broken, it changes who you are and who you will become—forever.
If Michael Jarrid thinks the worst has happened when his parents don’t believe him over his pregnant ex-girlfriend’s lie, he is wrong. Feeling alone, he pours all of his heart and soul into a new relationship. What Lacey does to him is even worse …
Now he doesn’t even trust himself. Is his life salvageable?
