Life is a roller coaster, and no one knows that better than Summer.
After escaping an abusive home at fourteen, Philadelphia native Summer finds a home with a motherly drug-dealer. Nightmares torment her in her sleep, while remorse plagues her when she awakens. Wracked with guilt over abandoning her younger siblings, Summer is determined to make money to free them from the life she fled. But dangerous choices make for a dangerous life—a lesson she learns quickly.
Throughout her life, Summer experiences love—and loss—in all its forms. Friends, family, and lovers change. Happiness quickly shatters into heartbreak. Hopelessness is resolved by fortune. Despite the horrors she witnesses and the bad luck that befalls her, Summer perseveres. Will tragedy and betrayal finally break her? Or can Summer rise above it all to make a better life for herself and her family?
Trying to overcome an abusive childhood, Summer suffers several tragedies and betrayals, each more heartbreaking than the last.
Read this book about a million times!! All time fav! Can relate sooo much with the author
It was a really short book. It would have been better if it was longer with more details. The proofreader did a bad job because there was a lot of errors. Good story but this book and the next should have been done in one.
This book was amazing
Coming from the badlands myself I must say I truly understand and appreciate this book. I had a very similar upbringing and went through some of the same tragedies and I couldn’t put this book down. Can’t wait for the other book to come out.
