Leap of Faith by Jamie Blair
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This could have been more. What we do have is simply a girl playing house. She may seem like she’s doing the brave thing but it’s clear that things do not start out that way. What I liked most is that she’s honest (to an extent) about what she doing and why she's doing it to herself. Of course, to the rest of the world, she’s lying her ass off. Still, I like this not-good but eventually good path the story gets on.
Of course, there's the requisite love interest… and may be we could have done with out that? Was the boy and his own family drama necessary for her to see that where she was wasn’t the right place? Need we the good grandmotherly type or the sad father and the even sadder son to get her to un-stick here head from the sand? In this instance maybe we did, because for a good long while at the beginning its her being what she claims not to be: callous and uncaring, her mother’s kid.
Then things change; she changes be it because of the kid or the other people she’s so conveniently found herself with… but she does change and more drama ensues with her trying to do the right thing and breaking hearts while doing the same As well as of her doing the hard thing then coming to see that there are even more difficult things to follow. I still think this could have been more though.
