Review
This sort of thing usually fascinates me, so that alone was reason to read this, i picked this up on a whim and got stuck in. I found it interesting, and when reading it i couldnt put it down, the problem was i found myself not wanting to read it. Overall though, i love the characters, Val had me rooting for her, through frustration and care, i genuinely felt attached to her as a character. She was well written and this made the story feel real in its nature. I would definitely recommend this!

Rating; 7/10
