I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me.
My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers. But this one isn’t a romance. This novel holds only the truth, which I have run away from for four years. The truth, which I have hidden from the police, from my loved ones, from the world.
It’s my confession.

Maybe she doesn’t have anyone else to be irritable with. Maybe, she doesn’t have anyone at all.
That line right there, that one line, stuck with me throughout this whole book.
This story is pretty different from some of Alessandra’s other writing. However, if you liked the Girl in 6E (my fav series) then you will have no troubles here.
There is no romance. It’s not about the love of a man and a woman. It’s about a woman, Helena, and what broke her. She is broken. Sick and broken. At first, I didn’t know what to think, much like everyone else in the book. Why is she like that? I didn’t love her. But she grew on me the more we got to know her. And then- at the end, it all clicks. That poor, poor woman.
By the end, I felt exhausted emotionally much like Helena. I understood her and ultimately, I liked her and if I were in her shoes, I would have done the same thing to protect my child.
Sure, wrong turns were taken. Mistakes were made. Accidents happen. But such is life.
I loved this book and every element of it’s real, raw, emotional beauty.
