I have had this book for almost two weeks now and it was one of those books where you can’t put it down. From the time I started reading it, it was very difficult to stop reading. It has 272 pages and it is my favorite length in books. It doesn’t have over 300 pages or double-digit pages. It was just in the middle. It started off being a very weird and then as it progressed it got better. It’s a very sad, but heartwarming, plus it has something else inside it that you will love. Trust me.
When I looked up this book and read the description of it and found out the lead female character was named Megan, I was bit creeped out that it just had to be that name. Anyways, she is a newly graduated from college and working at a newspaper as an editor for the other columnists. She was working on her article about the street kids in Los Angeles, CA. At first, you think the kids in gangs. It’s not about them. It’s about the kids that are living on the streets that are selling themselves for money. Giving people sex for money. She interviewed a few kids, including Mouth. He was her first person to give her some insight of life on the streets. She interviewed others once as everybody found out she was giving out money.
After spending most of her time at work and on the streets, trying to learn more about these kids. She kind of falls for Mouth. She and Mouth have a argument about how it’s too dangerous out here for her to be around, especially at night. She still comes around to check up on Mouth and the others, but when she can’t find Mouth she gets worried. After a week of being missing, she finds him leaning up against a wall and he has been beaten up. She checks on him and takes a gamble and makes him come hom with her to stay until he gets better. He hesitates about this, but still agrees. From there it get better and better.
I love stories that has love and romance with a really thought-out storyline to it. Lauren and Bonnie have a really good book on their hands. At first, you think this is going to be sad and weird, which is what I instantly thought when I was first reading it too. When I was reading it towards the ending, I did NOT want it to end whatsoever. I remember talking to my mom and telling her I didn’t want it to end at all. When I told her the night I finished the book she literally told me I read that book more than any book I ever read in high school. Usually in books I think a part could have been shorten or made longer, and there was not one chapter I wanted to change. It was just amazing. Once you start, you never want to spot. You will love it if you are open-minded. Just saying.
