Sneaking out of the house is a definite no no, but Unique is in love and does it anyway. What happens when sneaking back in one night gets her caught up? What will happen when her parents discover that she has a boyfriend? Who will suffer because of it? What will happen to this family when hell breaks loose? Find out what happens in this novel that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Book Review  - 
This story took me back to a story I heard a long time ago where both parents believed in this type of "discipline" and saw nothing wrong with it. The home life of Ronnie and his siblings was heartbreakingly painful to endure. Under the guise of "keeping the kids inline", the parents (mostly the father) had extremely strict rules that all the kids regardless of age had to follow.  If the rules were broken, then the punishment would be swift and severe. The author did an excellent job of painting a vivid picture of this home and showing readers how that simple messaging to your family that "what happens in this house stays in the house" can be detrimental to one's very survival. Yes, there was some repetition, but with such powerful messaging it didn't take me out of the story. 3.5 rolled to a 4
