Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This emoji said it all about the book
No good deed goes unpunished!!
This was the single most disturbing thought that dogged my steps as I started reading the book.
Jenni was the math teacher, Destiny was a ninth grader who was about to enter a van with goons. Jenni prevented that, Child Protective Services were called. An impersonation by the goons, and Jenni decided to take Destiny to her aunt. The story twisted midway and became shocking.
Debut by Kate Bradley shook the secure walls in my mind as I could hardly process what I was reading. The author has written a book about damaged individuals in such a way that every word was shocking. The scenes which were unveiled had me shaking my head at the things humans do to survive.
Told in dual POV, Jenni and Destiny showed me the complexities of a human mind which could justify abuse and try to erase the past, even remedy them with a new story.
Human psyche was delved into from the beginning to end, the author left me with a hope along with a feeling of shock at the way the scenes unfurled. Trying to save the past and deluding the present drove both these women to their desperations. This book has to be read to be believed. Both the women evoked my pathos and anger. This was more than a debut, it was hard-hitting and twisted. An absolute thriller.
A fast read, addictive, I couldn’t let go of the book even while traveling.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
You don’t know who they are. You don’t know why they’re hunting her. But you know she’s in danger.
What do you do?
When teacher Jenni Wales sees 15-year-old Destiny’s black eye, she’s immediately worried. Destiny isn’t your average student: she’s smart, genius IQ smart, and she’s in care. But concern turns to fear when Jenni witnesses an attempt to abduct Jenni from school.
Who are these men and what can Destiny know to make them hunt her?
With those around her not taking the threat seriously, Jenni does the only thing she can think of to keep Destiny safe: she takes her.

This sounds compelling, I wants it!
Rocking debut, not like a usual thriller. I was too shocked
Your review is convincing—a good thriller and too much for me!😱
You would love it, methinks… It has some grooming but nothing graphic… You just get an aura that the girls were damaged
This sounds so good!
It was completely different and fun
This sounds very interesting. Needs to be read to be believed? No good deed goes unpunished, all adds to the intrigue. Great review Shalini.
