I want to tell you how great my life was. How I lived without regrets. With constant laughter. Without any tears. I want to tell you how I lived each moment to the fullest. How each breath I took was fresh and full of life. With eagerness. Without any fear.
I want to tell you all of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.
My life didn’t start until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.
My new name, the name everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.
Four years after finding the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has built her new life on.

My Review: 5 stars
Wow! I don't even know where to begin... This was such an emotional read - the highest highs and the lowest lows. Sobbing like a freaking baby at certain points. Erin is so strong, she's more than capable, and this story is relentless in bringing her to her knees again and again. I'm not saying much more than you have to read it to really understand. I really connected with Erin on music and how it relates to what's happening in your life. If you are that connected to the music and understand the power behind the music and the lyrics, which I totally get. I was emotionally drained, and had to take breaks from this book. It was so powerful. I can't believe this is Yessi's first book. It's amazing, and I can't wait to see what she writes next.
