I liked the title and the cover of the book. It makes the reader curious to know what will happen next. The plot of the story is interesting but confusing. The plot shifted between Vicky’s perspective, lyrics, and her past. The shifting plots were unique but break the connection with the story making the reader confused. It was breaking the flow of the story.

“I’m living my life as consequence of yesterday.
And all of my choices compliment my life today.
There may have been times I could have gone and lost my way,
I could have, I would have, I should have, I don’t care – I’m here now.”
