BOOK REVIEW
This story was interesting in the fact that Sameer was set on a path that would result in nothing more than death. The story progressed well and had the only ending that it could have. The characters were developed enough to aid in my understanding of the author's message. While there was not a lot of movement that happened, I think this story of domestic violence will resonate with some. There was one question that was never answered and that was what was Brock's secret?
