      Testing the waters is never accomplished within the safety of the shore.Susan Bernhard presents a novel imbued with the tragedies of second hand debris of life The hand off, the jilted inheritance, the receiving end of the deadly stick, the heavy baggage left in the wings by those who came before us Her main character of Wes Ballot is but fifteen years old But Wes bears the internal scars of hovering in the shadows for most of his young life observing and fleeing from the images of his alcoho Te [...]

      I d come to realize that all my life I d been sheltered and shaped for the better by women who d had to fight for every last thing and who d done their best, even my mother, even Ruby in her way For those who follow me for some time, know that this is not my usual genre or type of book.My main reads are YA and romance.If this book centers around a teenager of fifteen year old, Wes, I would not call it YA Nor would I call it romance even if you ll find some love story in it.Trying to qu [...]
