, by SM Koz
, is a story about Kelsie Sullivan, a once happy and outgoing cheerleader, with a secret that has caused her to turn to self harm.
The accident that killed her best friend, Jenna, was her fault, and nobody knows it. The guilt is overwhelming, and since her father is mostly absent from her life, and her step-mother could be the queen of all evil step-mothers, Kelsie has nowhere to turn.
When it is discovered that she is relieving her stress at the end of a razor blade, her step-mother sends her to a Wilderness Therapy program that feels like it is a million miles away from everyone and everything she knows.
Kelsie hates it there, and tries everything to be kicked out, but when she meets JC, a boy with a secret of his own, her feeling start to change. But, as the saying goes, "it always gets worse before it gets better", Kelsie is hit with tragedy once again.
I don't want to tell you too much of the story, but I will say that, I liked this story. It is full of heartache, despair, and self harm, but with love and acceptance thrown in. The story does switch back and forth between the present and Kelsie's flashbacks, and although the flashbacks aren't always seamless, they do add a level of mystery to the story.
It is good to see that Kelsie's outlook on things changes as she becomes more accepting of her program, and her love interest. If you are interested in reading more, you can find Breaking Free
