***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
My name is Reyna Miracle. Even though a part of my name is Miracle, there’s nothing miraculous about me. My body portrays the tales of my life. Every feeling, every heartbreak, every emotion. Marked. Inked. Stained. A walking canvas of my messed up truth. But there’s one confession I can’t put in a tattoo. A confession that will kill me to tell, but my best friend died before I had the chance. Now I’m left with him. The only one who can hold me in the night and squeeze that spot on my neck that feels like my lifeline between sanity and chaos. But we don’t work together. We’re absolute poison for each other. We’re a stifling, suffocating, sickness of darkness. But I feel safe…because I’ve made an art of pushing people away. Now he’s pushing back… And making me believe… Making me wonder… Maybe, just maybe… I could be the one.
I really liked the way the author did flashbacks instead of writing the book in chronological order. Sometimes this writing style can backfire and be just a complete mess, but the author did it flawlessly and it really gave me a feel for what state of mind Reyna was in at the present time.
I do need to get something off my chest, it’s not a negative towards the book, I just need to vent, lol. Reyna’s mom annoyed the crap out of me! I don’t know how anyone else is going to perceive her but I just wanted to smack the crap out of her. I can’t go too much in to detail but she just ticked me off something fierce. Ok I feel better now.
Overall this book was amazing. There is a meme floating around on the internet that reads “That moment when you finish a book, look around, and realize that everyone is just carrying on with their lives… As though you didn’t just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback.” That most definitely applies to this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone over the age of 18.
