I received this book free from the author in exchange for a review. It is a short read detailing the friendship of a concerned teacher Abby and her pupil Beth and the secrets they hold. I fell in love with their friendship and loved the way K B Walker switches between characters. K B Walker is very descriptive in her writing and sets the scenes well. If I am honest, I actually fought back the tears when Abby’s parents died because the scene at the hospital and the way K B Walker described how Abby was feeling reminded me of the day I lost my grandad. To me for a writer to be able to connect with their readers even in an emotional way like this, shows talent!
Without giving away too much of the book, the plot centres around self harming. K B Walker obviously did her research and handled the subject with care.
Definitely worth a read…
