I’ve seen many different book review blogs and more often than not, they only review the most recent books currently on the shelves or newly released in hardback and paperback. I’m totally not against it, but there are many brilliant, hardworking authors who post their amazing stories online. Many of which, are located on Amazon, Smashwords, and Wattpad. These authors’s works deserve to be read much like C.P. Turner’s book “sounds like a lie but its realy the truth.”
First off, many people would probably comment about the misspellings and the grammar within the book. However, to me, it made me understand as well as connect with the main character, Angel, on her own age level and mind set. Plus, she’s from South Carolina. If you haven’t heard their accents, they have a twang when speaking. This book is written in first person and reads like a spoken diary. A diary full of secrets, truth, poems (beautifully written), lessons, and family drama.
Now Angel lives in a small town, regularly goes to church, and tries to stay within the lines she’s been born into with her family. When you grow up with a church family, there are specific rules and boundaries you can’t cross because of them. Both her birth father and step-father are both preachers and expect much from her while Angel only wants to be herself and do things her own way even if they are not the best way to handle certain situations.
Angel dreams of getting out of her small town and going on her own path, leaving her family behind. That is when until she gets involved with the wrong guy at the wrong time. I’m not going to spoil it anymore, but the results that occur from this pairing kept me glued to the pages till the very end.
C.P. Turner is extremely talented and deserves to be read. Overall, I officially give this book 9 1/2 out of 10 Book Charms. This is a great novel that will keep you tied to it, wanting to know what happens to Angel and how her story really ends.
