After the betrayal this book had my heart racing! I almost love/hate books that have the central character taunted for being themselves, literally boils my blood. With that being said, this book had me immersed in the story.
The only issues I had with the story are 1. The climax was not in middle but at the end. Although it did have a couple of pages of a resolution and a nice epilogue I feel there needed to a little more resolution. 2. There was a lot of unnecessary filler pages. Now without adding spoilers there was plenty of character building but it was almost too much for this type of story. 3. The cover – it really deflects the energy this book gives. The two cover “characters” make it seem this book is set in the 80’s with 2 people in their late 20s and that’s not the story at all. 4. Yes, there is a theme of sports, since the two main characters enjoy football, however, I don’t think this makes it a sports story. This may deflect readers from the core themes of the story which is — betrayal, childhood friendship, and bullying.
Other than the issues I’ve described it really is worth a read!
