Author's Theme:

Do not let obstacles, no matter how big, small or challenging get in the way of what you are striving for.
Does knowledge come at a price?
Recommendation
"Did Cinderella ever consider fessing up to the prince, that night she was enjoying herself in the fancy ball gown? Did she even think of telling him, oh, by the way, prince, the coach isn't mine, I'm really a filthy little barefoot servant on borrowed time? No. She took her moment, and then went quietly away after midnight." - Callie.
"Probably my favorite body part. No one ever complained about a fat brain. No one ever accused their brain of being to short or to tall, too wide or too narrow. or ugly. It either worked or it didn't, and mine worked just fine."
Yes, for Callie Woodland. Because knowing what she has to do for Tyler, Michael and herself plus for money that she needs for a safe and stable home and to help get Tyler better knowledge comes at a price to her because she has to know what good or bad can come out of this, plus knowing the consequences of doing this.
I defiantly would recommend this to anyone. I don't read very much but this book i was actually able to finish! It's an all around amazing book, it keeps you wanting to read more. It has so much going on in a good way. So many crazy twist you wouldn't expect to happen. It's just very suspenseful and is very well thought out and can easily put a image in your head.It has a very small romance in it but not to much to take away from all the action happening in the book. The only thing i didn't like is how fast at the end of the book everything just happened.
