How was Natalie to know that the decision she was about to make between two potential dates, would forever be a pivotal point in her life? That it would mark the time where childhood innocence ended?
How could she even imagine that the wrong decision would send her life spiralling into the stuff of nightmares from where she might not come out alive?
Life takes a cruel twist of fate when Natalie, a completely average [almost] 16 year old, is forced to make a split-second decision… a decision that will change her future and forever alter her perception of trust, love and the realities of life.
This is the second book I have read by Carmen and this one is about Natalie and how she has to make a split decision that could be an important point in her life. Written well and I wanted to see if Natalie made the right or wrong decision. The conversations were true to form.

I am blessed–or cursed–with the ability to see the colour of peoples’ souls, something I dare not reveal. Keeping my secret hidden has kept me safe. Until now.
Now I am afraid that I can no longer hide from the evil in our society.
Our laws are intended–or so I have always believed–to protect us from sinfulness and chaos. But my friend, Sarah, is pregnant and unmarried.
Her child will be taken from her at birth and she will be forced into a life of shame. Time is slipping away. I must discover where the father of her child is and why he’s disappeared. But will the answers I find save, or destroy our society? Will they save, or destroy Sarah?
I’m torn between doing the right thing and the wrong thing. The trouble is that I don’t know which is which.
I settle for the truth. It’s all I have.
Carmen is a new author to me. I think she has writes really well with good descriptions. This was a hard story line to write about but I think she has done it really well. I wanted to find out what happened to Sarah who is pregnant and her baby once it is born will be taken away from her and she will have to live her life in shame. There were quite a few things worrying me as in what what would happen to Sarah and also her baby but the ending ties everything up neatly.
