Have you ever wondered how well you really know your spouse, your friends and even your family? Everybody has HIDDEN SECRETS but some are hidden better than others.  Have you ever questioned something someone has done or said or not said?  Someone you thought you knew everything about? That's what happened to Carla Michaels.  She thought she knew what her life was all about and slowly she finds out she doesn't know much of anything. I couldn't put this book down. Read it in one evening.   Everything that Carla Michaels has loved has ended tragically. She isn't sure life has any meaning any more.  She's not sure she can go on.   Just when she thought things were going in the right direction, the past crept in and with it some deep, dark secrets that she found out through some journals that had been hidden.  Will Carla make it through all the tragedy?  Will she find what she has always wanted more than anything? It all comes from the journals. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, suspense, and  romance with a slight dark side. Well written and you can actually relate to Carla.  She could actually be your best friend. This book had such reality to it, that page by page  you learned more and more of the secrets and the tragedies. You will feel such emotion. Will Carla hold on and pull through this?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Donna M. Zadunajsky, in exchange for my unbiased view.

I would give this book a SOLID 5 STARS.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This novella is so deserving of its full five stars. I read the blurb and I have to admit I was doubtful. It was so informative. I really recommend every school, youth group or place that looks after children or young adults, should have this book on their shelves, immediately.

The subject matter is disturbing, don't get me wrong. However, it's done with such a deep understanding of the subject that I can only imagine any kid with a problem, possibly adults too, as this can affect anyone, of any age or any background. I read it and saw how easily it can be hidden. Though I have known people who have done this, so I know how true to life it is.

It wasn't so long any kid given it, or adult would lose interest in a complicated story. I did gasp aloud at some points, and anyone with a beating heart in their body would do the same.

I cannot say there was a favourite character in the book, as it wasn't a book that I could do that with.

A minor note to the author. Wow, well done, and seriously you are an amazing book there. You have the potential to help so many kids.

* I received this book from the author / Bostick Communications in return for a fair and honest review. *
