The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.

Reading this was one hell of an epic journey. It was just so good. I thought it was very descriptive, well written, thought-provoking and most of all sensitive. The mental health aspect of the character Blue really grabbed me. The author took her time with the set up for each character. So this is a true growing into maturity novel.
The two main characters, Piper and Blue grow together in so many ways. I have never read about a homeless character. I do know a good amount about the homeless that are close to where I live. Most of the time, being homeless is not about a home as much as a lifestyle. When they start their friendship, both Blue and Piper are very cautious. Both characters are opposite, or so you think. The layers of Blue start to peel away, revealing a monumental story.
I can say this broke the mold. Explore the lifestyle which Blue lives in. That is what you should pay attention to. It is very well written. The plot moved along at a steady pace. The secondary characters like Ditra and Josh are just as important to the reader as Piper was. They show that friends dont come in one variety, but many. Without being a spoiler I will say that when Piper, for a short time, was overwhelmed with Blue she did drop Ditra. That I found sad until Ditra stood by her friend explaining she got it and that it was ok.
This is a fabulous story about mental illness, drugs and the homeless people we all see and ignore.
Note: This is not a fluffy, light read or a swoony romance. It’s a journey of love between two people who can’t let each other go, even though they are far from perfect. It’s about loving someone who is struggling with mental illness and addiction and all the ups and downs that come with it. It’s about finding a happily ever after that works between two people loving each other the best they can with patience, understanding, and unconditional love. Not everyone will agree with this kind of love and acceptance – but it exists, and it’s real, and it happens every day.
