I give this 35 starsRowen is a 17 year old girl with a lot of baggage Her father blames her for the unexplained death of her infant brother seven years earlier her mother has barely gotten out of bed since that time and her 15 year old sister hates her and wants to ruin her life any way she can Rowen just wants to finish high school go to college and get out of her town But with so many obstacles in her way can she succeed And this is YA so still reuires a best friend Jess who has her own family problems and a romantic interest Mike the star soccer player with the perfect familyAlso as a note if self harm suicide rape or domestic violence are triggers this isn't the book for youAs an adult reading this book I just wanted to slap most of the adults who let Rowen down in so many ways From the teachers who didn't understand her reaching out for help to her grandmother who knows the worst secret the whole time to her parents who either ignore her completely or beat the crap out of her everyone in her life lets her down The only people really there for her are Jess and Mike so it's easy to understand why she falls for him But those two characters are pretty flat and it's hard to figure out their motivation in getting involved Some of this could be because we are reading this from Rowen's perspective and the seemingly superficial relationships are a reflection of how she sees herself than anything else but I would still have liked a bit dimension to the characters who aren't RowenThank you to LibraryThing and the publisher for providing me with the ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review It has not influenced my opinion

Seven years ago an innocent act by Rowan Slone turned her life into a nightmare Since the age of ten she's lived with the burden of her baby brother's death Now she is seventeen and all she wants to do is graduate high school go to college and escape the loveless fam. 225 stars It was a look an attitude a mood that grew like a weed in our family But it was rarely spoken about said out loud CW Mentions of self harm depression self harm deathetc There were a lot of topics in this book that made me really uncomfortable So this is just a disclaimer that this book is not for everyoneHonestly it’s really messed up but in a strange demented kind of way it pulled me in This story was interesting to me because it showed a different perspective into teenagers minds It showed us the travesty and tragedy that the MC had to go through each day and how grief can either make or break a personAnd then it all went downhillI think the romance ruined this story Don’t get me wrong romance is good if it’s done right But how the author incorporated it into the story just made it feel dull and I felt no connection between those characters whatsoever The trope used was overbearing and I’ve read it a million times If it had been done right I would’ve enjoyed it but I wouldn’t be able to distinguish this book from the others that used this trope I just wish the author at least let the characters develop further before thrusting them into a relationship There was no actual reason to their attraction to one another besides lust which was uite the bother AND THEN THERE’S THE “NOT LIKE THE OTHER GIRLS” TROPE OH MAH GAWD I JUST CAN’T I hate this trope with a burning passion Literally I wanted to throw my laptop across the room when the “not like the other girls” trope was introduced This trope practically pins women against each other and I do not stand for it It doesn’t matter if you like to dress up and go out or if you date a bunch of guys or if you’d rather read a book than go to a party It doesn’t make you special it just makes you you It’s a preference not a trophy that distinguishes you from other people I had a lot of problems with some of the tropes in this book and issues with some of the ways the characters acted I hate when an mc thinks that all her problems can be solved by a man which in most cases is the love interest Your problems don't end because you ignore them or because some cute guy is showing interest in you That's just ridiculousThis book held potential for me but all these elements tied together weren’t my cup of tea The writing was decent but nothing out of this world I wasn’t gaping at sentences or mumbling “what a genius” as I read descriptions But it flowed well to the point where I thought reading this book was enjoyableSome things in this story don’t add up For example why would a senior be doing a project with someone whose younger I’m not sure how the school systems in America I’m assuming this is where the mc lives work but I’ve never heard of that happening There were spelling mistakes but not many to the point where it became distracting Thank you to LibraryThing for my free copy This is no way affected my opinion of the book instagram · goodreads

A Life Redefined Rowan Sloane #1Ily she has endured all these years the same family that holds her responsible for his death But no one holds her responsible than herselfWhen long time crush Mike Anderson invites her to the Prom suddenly her future looks brighter Rowan's younger sister Trina howeve. Read using Kindle UnlimitedThis was an interesting contemporary story and I felt so sorry for RowanRowan was such a normal girl who was living with an abnormal amount of guilt heaped on her by her family not to mention her crazy home life The way her family treated her and blamed her for her younger brother’s death was just awful and it was just so unfair the way she lived in constant fear of what her mother and her father would do on a daily basisThe storyline in this revolved around Rowan’s home life mainly and I have to say that I was shocked when her view spoiler 15 year old sister fell pregnant and then lied about being raped Awful hide spoiler
