I was gifted this series by the author when I was sick at home and needed some binge worth reading. I am so thankful that I got the chance to read them. Nessie Wallace writes stories that keep you entertained and in love with the characters. Writing about foster care, and abuse, is something, writing it well is another. Nessie writes stories that both break you and put you back together. She has you hating characters and also holding your breath through certain scenes. This author writes characters that are broken and also that are healing. They are strong and still growing stronger. I didn't stop and write individual reviews for the series because I just couldn't stop reading. I wanted to get everyone's story. I wanted the kids stories. I wanted the past. Brian and ramie were my favorite. If you want an emotional read, here ya go. Dive in y'all. Tell Me Why Jenna Kingsley had an amazing life until it crumbled around her.
