Havok's life was really sad, I just wanted to reach through the book and choke her mom. Every time she went home I was like "nooo don't go back!" Fade was the most awesome guy, I wish guys like that really showed up on the sidewalk. This was such a sweet love story I can't believe Havok would resist for so long, but I understand why. It is sad to think that people really do have lives like this, and resist asking, or accepting help. I would recommend this book, but it might not be for everyone, those that have issues with abuse, it might have some triggers.
