“Overall, there is nothing to not enjoy about this story/book and I applaud Belle Brooks for her debut novel…” – OMGReads
“I absolutely enjoyed Ms. Brooks’ writing style. Her characters have depth and a true to life feel, from the leads all the way through to every secondary character.” – Reader Review
“ I love a story where not all is as it seems, and this story gives intriguing twists and turns, taking a shocking new path.” – Reader Review
First things first … the book title says Part 1 … yes kids, that means the journey of Abigail and Marcus will not conclude in this book, so please no bitching and moaning about the whole cliffhanger thing. Belle Brooks deserves top notch recognition for this debut novel, so no down rating because “you hate cliffhangers.” THANKS 🙂
Alright … now for the good stuff … it’s going to sound a little cryptic because the story has many little twists to it that you shouldn’t know about before you read for yourself, but know that whatever you think you’re reading … may not be exactly what is … that’s all I will say on that. And the build-up is phenomenally done.
Abigail is in a lot of what I would refer to as turmoil and Belle Brooks does an excellent job of characterizing her in a light where she is real and relatable. There’s a little bit (or a lot) of Abigail in all of us. And the girl is lost. Her life is not going as she would hope, it’s really just one hot mess lol … but you will love her. She will make you laugh and smile and sometimes maybe a little twitchy, but you will relate with her easily. And then Marcus comes into the picture **swoon** to save the day 😉 (maaaaaaaaybe lol)
Overall, there is nothing to not enjoy about this story/book and I applaud Belle Brooks for her debut novel and look forward to more Marcus and Abigail AND maybe some Sammy (hint hint) in the future!
