Summary: How do you come back from the point of no return?
Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend Isaac alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time where Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn’t wake up.
Convinced that his own actions led to his friend’s death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely.
Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he’s ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth will soon realize he isn’t the only one who needs saving . . .
My Thoughts: What did I think? Honestly, I expected much more form this book than what I got. Most people I know who read it LOVED it. I, however, did not. It wasn’t awesome, but it wasn’t bad either. And, honestly, it’s a week since I finished reading it, and I don’t remember it very well. To me, that’s not the mark of a good book. (In my defense, I’ve had a wrist injury that prevented typing much.) There are books I LOVED that I read two years ago that I remember better than this. But, that doesn’t mean it was a bad book. I also remember books I thought were horrible better than I remember this! LOL I did like it. I liked Seth, and I liked watching him come to terms with Isaac’s death. And, it was refreshing to have a YA book written from the perspective of the male – so many YA books are teen-girl perspective. It is a nice change of pace having the boy as the first-person character.
Overall, the book was fine, but not spectacular. Not memorable, but not bad. Will I read it again? Highly unlikely. I am glad I hadn’t spent my money on it (it was a tour book, and was sent on to the next reader).
My Rating: 2.5 stars
