Synopsis:

Everyone keeps secrets. Everyone sneaks out of the house at night.  But the night Cleo Nielsen left home against her mother's instructions, started her on a nightmare that threatened to destroy her and the one she loved. Because of her disobedience she could not tell anyone her secret. To ease the pain of her guilt she turned to drugs to push the events of that night away.

Through her aunt Cleo found the love and forgiveness that only comes through God.

My thoughts:
Melody Carlson writes books that addresses sensitive issues that face the youth of today. Her books and show readers the world were promises of broken and life is not always fair. Her books will strike a chord in the reader's hearts. Her characters are credible and her issues are real.

I received this book from NavPress in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed in this review are solely mine.
