I really like the depth of the characters in this book. They all felt real and their emotions spoke loudly. The plot was good. Lots of family problems, relationships problems and betrayal all make for a good story.I loved Ari. Her character is well rounded and beautifully described. I felt for and all that she went through. I am sadden by the way her family treated her. But I'm am glad that she was better than them and never got down to their level. After her breakdown, she remain honest to who she was. I adore that.The love in this book wasn't what I expected. It did have an overall lesson learned. I was just hoping for a little more romance. Hey, I'm a sucker for romance.In the end Ari is who she always wanted to be. Herself.
