I give this book 5 stars.
"Willa Caldwell jumps in and out of her volatile and sometimes violent marriage seemingly unaware of the affects her actions have on daughter Jade. Lonely and insecure, Jade often falls prey to those eager to take advantage of her desperate need for love and acceptance. And both she and Willa endure heartache at the hands of those who claim to love them most.
As a young adult Jade decides to leave her hometown of Gary, IN, as well as the pain of her past to start anew in sunny California. Sadly, things don’t go as hoped and she’s left wondering if she’ll ever experience real love or if it will always be . . . Imagined Love.
I loved this book so much i went on to amazon.com and got a copy to go on my book shelf . so i could reread it again . i could related to willa because in high school i was in a abusive realtionship . its so sad how her daugther at a young age had to go throw all that .. i love how willa tells it like it is , and makes no excuses for her choices in life. Willa mother was so mean to her . She wanted willa to live like the 1950's where the wife's would stay home and take care of the kids and do what ever the husbands say. willa wanted better for her and jade. I thought that it was nice of cicely to help her out and take them in . but she was trying to put on a show for willla . .
So parts make you so mad. So parts make you cry . This book grabs you from page 1 till the end of the book, everyone from all walks of life can relate to this book. This is a good read.
