And Foster also masters the confusion and rage of a teenager who knows she’s being lied to by her parent. Down to committing a rash act which puts her life and her mother’s in jeopardy. She also draws the circle of friends well – life long friends all there for one another, banding together in times of sorrow, celebrating as one in good times…" LL Book Review

"This is a deep and moving book that speaks to men as well as women, and I urge you all to put it on your reading list." Thomas Elliott, Book Review Editor, Mensa Bulletin. Read full review

"As I read this book I was reminded of one of my favorite movies, Beaches. I tried putting myself in Megan’s place, would I make the same decisions she made? Would I tell the truth or withhold it? I’m not sure. This book has five key characters; they each have a strong connection. That connection is what makes this tale so special. Melissa Foster has done a superb job of placing just the right emphasis on the drama of the situation. Foster took a paint brush and dipped it in words to paint a beautiful canvas." Anne B., Readers Favorite Awards
