Review by: Paula Wohl on Oct. 17, 2013 :
A story of a young girl who is continually battered both verbally and physically, not really allowed to do much of what she's into. She takes off during a spring break to learn more about monk seals and finds so much more than just a love for these beautiful creatures! Beautifully written! I thoroughly loved it and never wanted to put it down!

It fully deserves 5 stars, but because of many grammar mistakes I found I'm only giving it 4.

I won this book in a contest...
What is life like for a teenager running? Running from what? Life, home, school... Everything!

Meet Andy, 17 year old whose life is anything but typical, or is it. Andy and her siblings come from a broken family, her parents divorced nd remarried. Talking about the ugly step parent syndrome! Andy truly thinks that she has them! She tells her mom and dad what their spouses have been doing to her and well they don't believe her.

She devises a plan to get away for Nine Days. She tells no one not even Jase, her best friend who together at school are known as Pete and Repeat. Off she goes. What does she expect to find in these Nine Days, where does she go? Paradise! Yes that is where she goes. She has to answer to no one, falls in more ways than one and comes back a changed person.

You can run, but you can’t hide. Much to her surprise her “boy crush” and his family show up where she is. Called out, now everyone knows, what is she going to do? She’s falling in love. The monk seals and the dolphins are her escape, her passion. So is someone else?

Now it’s time to go home, leave what she feels like she belongs and is “home” to her. Are there more problems on the horizon? At least she is safe, finally gets what she wants.

This is a book I won in a contest. Thank you H.R. Williams and CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing book. A book that is true to life, reality.
