Summary from Goodreads:
A teenage prostitute looking for redemption must face her secrets before they destroy her…

When tough teenager Anna ran away to New York, she never knew how bad things would get. After surviving as a prostitute, a terrifying incident leaves her damaged inside and out, and she returns home to the parents she was sure wouldn't want her anymore.

Now she has a chance to be normal again. Back in school, she meets a boy who seems too good to be true. Cute, kind, trusting. But what will he do when he finds out the truth about her past? And when a dark figure from New York comes looking for Anna, she realizes she must face her secrets…before they destroy her.


My Review:
I was expecting...I'm not sure what I was expecting. I guess I was looking for an emotional tug. It had promise. Thinking of it I think i was expecting a dark story with a some what happy ending. Anna i couldn't really get into cause I couldn't recoincide that a girl would would runaway at 13 would so easily accept being home back in the same circumstance she ranaway from in the first place. Also I'll tell you right now I had a problem with her agreeing to go back to high school. What almost 17 year old former runaway goes back to high school as a freshman?

I just couldn't fall for any of the characters. To be honest, I knew that I wasn't going to connect with this book early on. I finished it hoping that I'll have that moment when the book wins me over, sadly, I didn't happen. I do think that someone thing of running away could get something out of it. It isn't a bad book at all. It just has an off feel about it to me. Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

About the Author:
Stacey Trombley lives in Ohio with her husband and the sweetest Rottweiler you’ll ever meet. She thinks people are fascinating and any chance she has, she’s off doing or learning something new. She went on her first mission trip to Haiti at age twelve and is still dying to go back. Her “places to travel” list is almost as long as her “books to read” list. 

She wants to bring something new to the world through her writing, but just giving a little piece of herself is more than enough. 

Keep a look out for her debut novel NAKED, coming from Entangled Teen in 2015
