Forever Changed-Tiffany King- 4 stars
Her entire world is shaken to the core when a fatal accident takes her father, causing Kassandra to re-examine the course her life was on. The actions of one individual forever changes her life, leaving her to pick up the pieces of her broken family. Kassandra begins to question everything she once cherished and the people she disappointed along the way.
Maddon Johnson’s life is as different from Kassandra’s as night and day. Abandoned by his mother at a young age, he is left to deal with his abusive, alcoholic father on his own. He has one goal, lay low and get the heck out of dodge as soon as he is legally old enough.
Everything changes when his father’s tragic actions send Maddon crashing into Kassandra’s world. Suddenly, getting away is the last thing he wants as he discovers it is possible to believe in love after all.
This is not the first book I've read by Tiffany King so Im familiar with her work.I enjoyed this story.Kassandra's father was killed by a drunk driver with road rage,Maddon is her fathers killer's son.They both go to the same high school and eventually get to know each other.In the beginning of the book I was a upset at how Kassandra's mother reacted to her husbands death and let Kassandra deal with it all.That was so unfair to Kassandra.When Kassandra and Madden start hanging out she is so conflicted,I cannot even begin to imagine how I would be feeling or how my emotions were in that sitation.Kassandra was mature about it and on only one occassion did I get slightly upset with her.
The only bone I have to pick with this book is that I feel the ending and conflict were too abrupt.The conflict and ending were summed up in a few chapters.I would have loved and I mean loved to have had a few extra chapters for Kassandra and Madden to Iron out everything and just see what happens after the ending.Im so trying not to be confusing,But I just felt the book was ended a bit to abruptly for the type of book it is.Overall I enjoyed this and would recommend reading it.
