3 out of 5 (good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.


Bella is by all definitions, the school nerd.  She is a smart girl, the head tutor, and is quite shy.  She gets bullied by girls are school who are “loose”. Bella starts to come out of her she'll once she meets Jeremiah.  What can he do to bring out her inner voice? Can Bella overcome the incredibly tragic event that happens all because her father works in the name of God?

I have to be honest, this book started out pretty slow. It didn't start to pick up and keep me interested until about a quarter of the way through. Bella and Jeremiah’s relationship is sweet and fun and easy to relate to.  There were some tragic and heart breaking parts for Bella and her family. They had my heart breaking for Bella and for the innocent boy who was abused by his father. I loved how Bella has an outlet which she didn't really view it as such and didn't believe she was any good, singing.  Everyone needs something to do that they love doing and are passionate for, even if you are shy to admit it. There were parts of the book that left me shocked or left me reading just because I wanted to know more. 

Overall, it was a decent story. It was slow off and on and had a hard time keeping my mind on the story. In some parts I was glued to it, others my mind strayed.
