I really like that Shealy James tackles the subject of PTSD in this novel.
I enjoyed the dual point of views and perspectives from each of the main characters. Sarah, being a Psych student had an insight from her "books" but I think she learned that dealing with it in real life was a bit different.
I enjoyed the way this novel unfolded. It wasn't shocking and didn't have multiple twists, but I think it did hold its own in the New Adult Contemporary Genre.
