Mostly feeling 'Meh'.
Guess it has its niche, which does not include me. ( )

Hayley Kincaid is a troubled teenager; however, her troubles are atypical. She worries incessantly about her father, Andy, who suffers from PTSD, and has to scrape by without steady income. Andy's problems worsen to the point where his ex-girlfriend Trish comes to help, who Hayley hates for abandoning them, because of Trish's alcoholism. Meanwhile in school, a popular boy Finn decides to pursue Hayley and her best friend Gracie's parents separate. Things get frightening and frantic when Andy suddenly disappears ... ( )

Pros: It was an easy read. I was able to finish it over the course of a weekend. I have never read a book about a recent veteran with PTSD before. It was interesting to get a partial idea of what these men and women and their families must live with. Anderson is a local author who was born in the town I was born in, so I'm glad I was able to read some of her work. The character Finn, I found him funny and a very likable guy.

Cons: Hayley, the main character. Yes, she survived so much turmoil and instability. Yes, she loved her father. I wanted to like her and root for her even more than I was able to, however, she was so very unlikable. Her attitude was such a negative one. She treated most people like crap. She was smart, but clueless at the same time. So narrow minded. Secondly, I did not find the relationship between Finn and Hayley to be very believable because I found it hard to believe that Finn, who seemed to have a lot going for him, would actually be attracted to and put up with Hayley's negative aura and crap she spewed. Also, this strange set-up of the great and terrible Trish led the reader to believe that there was some extremely life changing incident that was unforgivable in which Trish was the perpetrator of. This never became apparent, so I really never understood Hayley's hatred. It just left me shrugging, like, what was all that about? I didn't much care for the ending of the book, but that is all I will say about it. ( )

As usual, excellent writing and great plot pacing but I really disliked the main character Hayley and how she treats people around her. Personally, I'm tired of MCs who sees everyone as 'zombies and freaks' and simplifies all people around them because their personal problems apparently eclipse how they should treat other human beings.

Also, I HATED that Hayley pretty much saw all other female characters other than her friend as bimbos and trash and hookers. A lot of unchallenged-in-narrative internalized misogyny from an author who is usually better than that. I won't comment on the treatment of PTSD/trauma because I don't have any personal authority on that issue and won't pretend to.

Still, three stars it is. Not a wholly bad book, just not what I was looking forward to.

Edit: I think Khanh's review hit it square on the head re: all the problems I have with this book, even if her review is a star lower than mine. ( )

His worst yesterdays played on a constant loop in his head and he couldn’t (or wouldn’t) stop paying attention to them.
I had shut the door on my memories because they hurt. Without my memories, I’d turned into one of the living dead.
We’re going to keep making memories like this, moments when we’re the only two people in the whole world. And when we get scared or lonely or confused, we’ll pull out these memories and wrap them around us and they’ll make us feel safe.
