My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sam's first day at Fallen Crest Public doesn't go well. Some girls want to be her. Some girls want to destroy her. And some just don't like her. All in all, despite being protected by Mason and Logan, it's still only the strong survive. Sam will not only have to survive, she needs to learn how to conquer too, but there's another battle growing. Things are about to come to a disastrous end between the towns, Roussou and Fallen Crest. Sam's other main dilemma? Keeping Mason and Logan from getting arrested or hospitalized.
This is the third book in the Fallen Crest Series.
Fallen Crest High
Fallen Crest Family
Fallen Crest Public
I totally love this series. And God the flips and loops and twists Tijan throws at us are insane. Sam Sam Sam. I wasn't sure what to do with her in this book. I felt like maybe she needed to be in a padded bubble. She was taking hits from every angle there for a while. I also feel like the girl needs some serious self defense classes.
And Mason. You can't have a strong relationship without a strong foundation. The communication between these two characters needs some major improving. Yes they talk, but they're not communicating when they should be.
But the draw. The pull between these two, and the family Sam has in this book is so comforting. So much was taken away from er in prior books but in this one she has TRUE family. She has people in her life that are the epitome of the word family and finally she realizes it. Granted the thing she saw in this book may have faltered her steps, but in the end she's so much stronger. Maybe a like chink in the armor of her relationship with Mason, but it's still strong and protective.
Such a good series. Tijan has this way of writing that just sucks you in and has you full of those feelings that the characters are going through.
