The author managed to capture the horror of what happened to Brook extremely well and then captured the healing process extremely well too. I wasn't expecting the characters to be so vivid but I loved how Gina was portrayed and her inability to actually see what was going on before her eyes and especially when she argued that she wasn't doing it for money did Brook think she was an idiot! Oh my her stupidness was just so real which only helped to make the whole story seem so real. I like the ending in this book it was fitting, I see there has been another ending released but I won't read that I am happy in my mind how this particular one went. It's definitely worth a read if you can handle harrowing situations.
