My Review of Where Life Takes You by Claudia Y. Burgoa

Be ready to laugh, cry, and feel for a woman who has been through her fair share of crap.

BECCA TRENT LIVED HER CHILDHOOD NEXT TO A CRUEL WOMAN—her mom—who lived to torment and neglect her. During her high school years, her mother married; bringing home not only a new husband, but a step sister her same age. The latter took over her Mom's role—making Becca's life miserable. Including stealing Ian—Becca's best friend and boyfriend—Lisa treated her worse than her mother had for the previous fifteen years. A couple years later, thing ended up in tragedy. 

Becca buried that part of her life in the deep corners of her psyche, caught between sanity and nightmares. Between therapy, work and her constantly looming past she can't seem to find room to breathe. The memories of her late step-sister, Lisa, are her closest company. 

Her best friend, Dan gives her that family love she always lacked. Everything was close to perfect, until everything and everyone from her past came back. Now she's trying to figure out how to survive and keep that bond which seems now to be held together by a thread. 

Note: This is the first part of a two book novel

My Review:
5 Stars

I absolutely loved this novel. I was extremely surprised by the ending, but after reading the blurb and seeing that there is indeed another book coming I am a little bit better now. 

This book centers around Becca. A woman who thinks that she is ruined. Though with the family that she has grown up with its no wonder that she believes that. A incident happens and she is accused of something horrible. Luckily her best friend Dan is there to save her. 

Years later she and Dan are still inseperable. They work closely together and spend most of their free time with each other, but when Becca's past comes crashing back into her life she's left worrying about losing everything she has gained. 

A very emotional read that had me in tears more than once. I cannot wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds. I really hope that Becca receives the happy ending that she deserves.
