“Scamper, Little Mouse. Discover a nook to cover, identical to a tiny mouse would.”
Having adopted Addie within the earlier books we simply couldn’t wait to get her story. We knew it was going to be emotionally devastating and heart-breaking. She grew up in circumstances nobody ought to bear witness to nor be a sufferer of. Indoctrinated to fall in line, to simply accept, and to undergo in silence. Shedding the one connection to unconditional love at such an early age too. No surprise she’s scared, timid, and needing to fade into the background. But Addie has an actual spine too. An incessant have to expertise a life she was by no means allowed to reside; see, style, and odor what was forbidden. Her eyes are opening up while holding on to her pure integrity and honesty.

“Magnificence within the power that carried you thru. Magnificence in the way you refused to be damaged. Magnificence that you just by no means let your self develop into merciless like him. Addie, there isn’t a factor about you that isn’t stunning.”
When Addie and Beckett find yourself as housemates it initiates a journey of therapeutic, laughter, and love between two individuals who have emotional scars that also intermittently bleed. Each have so many unresolved emotions to untangle and goals to understand. It was emotionally intense at instances; it was thrilling, and it was extremely candy too. We cherished each minute, although at instances we felt the connection between Addie and Becket was extra friendship than a fiery love affair.
“Life is stuffed with ache. We’ll harm one another. However I belief us each to make it proper when that occurs. I belief that we’ll be taught and develop and do higher subsequent time.”
