This book was definitely a solid 4 star read for me! I LOVE that it has ties to birth deformities (like Casey, a friend’s son had something similar happen with his hand) and that JT’s character was centered around his use of a prosthetic!
I liked Paige’s character because she is a strong lead in the story and continues to be that even to the end. I never felt that she was weak but rather that girl we have all been or know – the one that does everything in her power to keep her head above water. JT, is definitely the dark and brooding type in the beginning but the girls show us a side to him that you haven’t gotten to know. Both are so strong and push themselves for bigger and better things, which is a reminder we can all be like either of them no matter what life handed us. I think Jenny and Simon make great counterparts to Paige and JT also – the free spirited, light-hearted types to Paige and JT’s serious sides.
I did read this book as a standalone and never felt that I was missing anything from the previous two books. However, I definitely want to read more by Claudia now! There were some points I personally had trouble following the conversations and I do wish some more detail was involved with the story. Again, that’s me personally – I don’t think it took away from the story itself. I definitely recommend this story and feel it was fine to read without the others but will be reading the others so I can know all of the brothers!
