After finishing book one I can honestly say I was not in too much of a rush to move on to the next book. It was a hard book from me to move on from. Because, I really, really honestly love the story. But, I how certain things are written and described. But, I gave it another chance. I still am slightly disappointed but not totally hating it either.
This book picks up right where we left off. Tori is headed onto a plane headed to Los Angeles. She is not happy about it either. Tori knows she is older then 15. She knows the feds are playing games but she knows there's nothing she can do about it. Tori must be careful. She must go to this halfway house for the next six months before she can be emancipated. Tori needs to behave and lay low for six months. Tori needs to just go to work at the record store she's been assigned too and not make friends. They are also making her go to weekly AA meetings. Should be easy..
Tori gets to LA and into the halfway and stays to herself. Her boss Terry seems nice. He understands her quietness and her need to not be touched. And, he respects it. The people in the halfway for the most part leave her alone. Until a new resident moves in. Unfortunately, it's Enrique. He knows Tori from her past from the Dragons. This can cause serious problems for her.
As much as Tori does not want people in her life, it's kind of hard. When a huge situation comes to light Terry and her friends at the halfway house come to her side. Tori realizes she has friends. People she never wanted around. She knows keeping them in her life is potentially putting their lives in danger. But, for right now she'll keep them. They are helping her grow and learn new things everyday.
Terry has had the biggest impact on her. He's teaching her the ropes on running a business. For a just in case kinda thing. He's also always telling her all the things at the right time. She'll never admit it out loud but she respects everything he is telling her and teaching her.
Tori and everyone that knows her knows she is much older then 15. When her emancipation trial comes it's good and bad news. The FBI are hiding things. And, important things. When Tori is close to having her exit plan figured and ready to go her past comes walking into her job. Tori runs and doesn't plan on looking back. Until that person sits down next to her on the bus.
This book just like the first book was super hard for me to rate. Even though I really truly loved the story and I flew through this book. I can not stand that there is almost NO dialogue through out the whole book. I mean maybe one-two line dialogue every few pages. Really??!! The other thing that absolutely made my blood boil was how things were described. When there was a sexual reference the way things were described. UGH!! If I read about "salty ooze" one more time. I probably would of thrown my kindle across my backyard. "Salty ooze" who would want that near them? I've heard a lot of different names. But, that was just one of the bunch of stuff that blew my mind. Other then that I really liked the story and want to know what is next for Tori. I'm hoping she'll get the new life she truly truly deserves!!
