What would you do if your whole life was a lie and learning the truth could cost you your life?
From New York Times bestselling author of the Shadow Falls series comes C. C. Hunter’s new YA thriller about a girl who learns that she may have been kidnapped as a child, and must race to uncover the truth about her past before she winds up a victim.
Chloe was three years old when she became Chloe Holden, but her adoption didn’t scar her, and she’s had a great life. Now, fourteen years later, her loving parents’ marriage has fallen apart and her mom has moved them to Joyful, Texas. Starting twelfth grade as the new kid at school, everything Chloe loved about her life is gone. And feelings of déjà vu from her early childhood start haunting her.
When Chloe meets Cash Colton she feels drawn to him, as though they’re kindred spirits. Until Cash tells her the real reason he sought her out: Chloe looks exactly like the daughter his foster parents lost years ago, and he’s determined to figure out the truth.
As Chloe and Cash delve deeper into her adoption, the more things don’t add up, and the more strange things start happening. Why is Chloe’s adoption a secret that people would kill for?
So far I have love every book I have read from CC Hunter. How ever this is the first time I have an issue with some of the characters in the book. But lets start with what I liked from the book/story. First thing I loved was the relationship between Chloe and Cash. They were so cute together and it was just innocent. I also love the mystery around the story. The possible kidnapping and the secrets around her adoption. The beginning of the book is slow but it picks up halfway trough.
What I didn’t like. Chloe’s adopting parents split and were getting a divorce. Her dad was too busy trying to impress the young lady he cheated on her mom with and arguing with her mom. And then we got her mom, she threw her self so deep into her depression and her hate for Chloe’s father that she couldn’t be a mother. Chloe was the one acting like the parent in that situation, making dinner and making sure her mom survived. Which made her hate her father for what he had done to them. The parents fights and bad relationship almost took over the whole story line. And for a little bit it got boring. I wanted more of Chloe and Cash , more action and less bickering between divorce parents. Over all the story was good and I enjoyed most of it.
