"I tell them that we can't always control what happens to us. But we can control how we respond to it."

Ehh. This was not a bad book but I can't really say that I like it either. I almost DNFed this because:

1. It's boring.

I like books that manage to capture my interest and could hold it until the end. Unfortunately, this book didn't do it for me.

2. I didn't connect with any of these characters.

I found them bland. There's no one that really stood out or affected me in some way.

Hmm. Eliat, maybe. I didn't know at first that she's Tash's mother. That's a lot of baggage to be thrown in a child. She was so young.

3. The POVs.

The book has 3 POVs without indicating which POV is the chapter about. Confusing as hell at the beginning but you'll get use to it somehow.

The ending is a complete mess. I am so confused on how these characters are connected in some way. So many of my questions are left unanswered. Others said to take note of the 'before, after, later' but I didn't because I couldn't really get what they mean.

Ahh sorry. I didn't enjoy this book. Maybe others will find this appealing but it's just not for me.
