A story about grief, family conflicts and first love, with a dramatic background of sport and the Olympics.
What do you do when your amazing, beautiful, beloved sister dies? Hide in your room for two years. Sleep with a very, very wrong man. Leave home and start a new life, lying to everyone you meet including your kind employer, your curious friends and the man you love?
Pip Mitchell’s an expert at making seriously bad decisions. But when her past, present and future collide at the Sydney Olympic Games, she’s going to have to decide whose side she’s on – or she’ll lose everyone she loves.
This is not my usual read but I thought it was worth giving it a try, I thought it was good as a story, the main story was about Pip’s journey for self discovery. The characters were all great and it was interesting to learn more about them, it is not necessarily about hockey, even though hockey is a part of this story you don’t have to know anything about it which I didn’t but felt as though I knew a little more after reading this story. The only thing I didn’t get was the parts of this book that were like a scene in a play for me I just felt as though the book didn’t need it. I thought this book was going to be predictable but it is anything but. I enjoyed it.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
