**I received this book in exchange for an honest review**

This book is OUTSTANDING and I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Although it's genre is Teen and Young Adult, all could benefit from reading this.

These authors are on the tip of being added to my very limited list of pedestal authors!

Brilliantly written addressing real issues teens of today face.

Thank you so much for posting my review of this MUST READ story!

When I saw the cover of this book, then the blurb, I KNEW I had to read!

Even though this book's genre is for teens and young adults, I'm middle aged and I was immediately hooked! This is a story that I very highly recommend ALL read, regardless of age. Actually would be a superb high school reading assignment. What a page turner, absolutely loved every single word brilliantly written by this author team. I totally absorbed myself in this story and it totally grabbed my heart.

The characters and storyline are so vividly explained by the authors that you feel like you are there "in the story" as events unfold. You know exactly what the characters look like because you "see" them.

I fell in love with this story. What a strong friendship amongst the group that I can so picture them in my head. They are a group of teens trying to "be teens", facing all of the pressures that teens face in life such as peer pressure, grades, sports, hormones, etc. The issues addressed are so very real and prevalent in today's society. I know because when our children were in high school, they'd tell us about these very issues going on at school and I still hear about them, although in real life what I've been told is so much worse than portrayed here!

I can't possibly put into words to properly do this story justice, other than to tell you to read it. To me it's also a great story to learn from, discuss and be aware of what teens truly face. So many emotions experienced while reading.

The book ends with a HUGE cliffhanger and I honestly can't wait for book 2, The Dead of Winter.

Well done Julie and Tracy. To me you deserve a standing ovation for this outstanding piece of work. I've been singing praise for this story for a long time! ~Tracey
