Sixteen-year-old Olivia Mansfield dreams of a land far, far away. . .
A land far away from her stepfather’s abuse and torment.
A land far away from her mother’s blind eye.
A land far away from the haunting memories of her past.
But then reality sets in, and Olivia knows she must make the best of her dire situation—at least until her high-school graduation. But when poor choices lead Olivia to the brink of a complete breakdown and she finds herself dealing with the unexpected death of her best friend, she comes to a crossroads. Will Olivia find the path to ultimate hope and healing that her heart longs for? Or will the demons from her past prove too much to bear?

This book was so good! I was very impressed by the vivid story-telling. I also connected with many of the major themes, such as wanting to be away from people. This book would be a great resource for any teenage girls dealing with major issues of their own.

This book was received free for review for a Teen Novel Teen blog tour. I was not required to give a positive review, simply an honest one.
