Story: It would’ve been different if I had courage, even an ounce of it. But I was a coward from the day I met you, Ryan Crowley. I still am. In the end, it doesn’t matter. The bottom line is the same. It’s my fault. When the unthinkable happens, Carly Cavanough is left beaten, betrayed, and devastated. Her best friend doesn’t understand. Her parents won’t listen. Everyone in her life turns against her. She’s completely alone, except for Ryan Crowley, the boy she’s been crushing on for years. She won’t admit to him what she can’t admit to herself. But he understands without words. He knows more about what she’s going through than she can possibly imagine and he knows what it will take for the healing to begin. With Ryan’s help, Carly begins to piece together the fragments of her once perfect life and embark on a journey of love and healing, just long enough for the rug to be pulled out from under her again. Can she find the strength and will to pull herself together to save Ryan and herself when their lives are on the line?
Our Rating: 5 out of 5 Heroic Stars
Review: Danielle has done it again writing a story with so much emotions. Rape is a rough subject to talk about and we imagine it’s just as hard to write about. The way Carly is raped and beaten took our breathe away and brought chilling tears to our eyes. Too many of us know someone or is someone who’s been rape. As hard as it is to read about the rape it is a wonderful ride to read what comes next. We are not saying that all that comes next is roses in fact it’s the oppisite. We get to see Carly struggle with the aftermath of her attack. Her issues with trust is such a great representation of what many women go through after such an attack.We also get to see what an amazing and loving character Ryan is. Give us a moment to swoon. Ryan will take over your heart and you will be thinking about him even when you are not reading the book. Look for him to be our boyfriend of the week soon. We will say it does take a while to get used of reading the POV from 1st person to 2nd person, but before you know it you’ll find yourself not noticing. This a heart wrenching, tear jerker, wonderfully written story.
So grab your tissue box and read To My Hero: A Blog of Our Journey Together
