Boy Released is the follow-up story to Boy On Hold by J.D. Spero. While I would say this book could be read as a standalone, I enjoyed it so much more having read the first book. There is so much history you need to know, so I would recommend starting there.
Boy Released reunites us with the characters from book one and takes place ten years later. Tyler is now back with his family, and after his mother is attacked is now the main suspect due to his troubled history.
This story is an emotional rollercoaster. It combines mystery, compassion, and heartbreak and keeps the reader on their toes and turning pages. The characters are wonderful, and you get to hear from several different points of view throughout the story. The author writes in a way that makes you completely understand what each character is going through, even when they have different thoughts and opinions, you can relate to them all. I loved this story and thought it was an excellent follow-up.
