Where to begin…
It’s clear I did not enjoy this book, I marked it as a DNF (did not finish) book which I really try not to do. I try to finish a book even if i’m not enjoying it. But Trouble crossed a line for me, and as soon as that line was crossed I couldn’t carry on reading it.
So lets talk about what I did enjoy, because thats only fair. Non’s writing. I had two very clear voices in my head for two different characters, her writing was great. I knew who was talking and it was very easy to follow. I applaud that.
I liked the character of Aaron, a lot. He was sweet, and although I didn’t finish the book and so I don’t know what his backstory is (it hadn’t been fully revealed when I gave up), I still liked his character. Although, what teenage boy would agree to pretend to be the dad of a baby to a girl he just met? Not very realistic in my opinion..
I didn’t like Hannah at all. The back of the book described her as smart?! I failed to see what about Hannah was smart. I liked how she was developing (albeit slowly) before I gave up, so there is a plus side. I do like that she chose to keep the baby, but her families reaction was just not what I was expecting.
I disliked more in this book than I enjoyed. In fact, I only enjoyed a few moments. I really did not enjoy the majority of this story. And then it crossed a line, and I put it down! Won’t be recommending this to anyone.
