"You save yourself or you remain unsaved." - Alice Sebold.
  
  °°°

Florence Rosa Brine - this is her story. 

It's a sad one, to be honest. After all, no one has an easy ride, but her version of events is one that would surprise even those who think they knew everything about her. 

After a series of incidents that had emotionally and physically scarred her, Flo fled from her hometown to live with her father in Australia and changed everything about herself that made her, her.  But when she realises that the only way forward is to take a step back, she returns to make amends with the person that means the most to her: Jake.  
  
Yet the thing that stands out the most to Flo is the transformation he has undertaken. He spends most of his hours in the gym, boxing, weightlifting, boxing, and more boxing. Instantly, Flo notices that he's become quieter, fiercer and strangely distant, but she has no idea of what is going on in his head. 
  
After all, he's Jake. And no one knows a thing about Jake. 
  
While facing her fears head on, she discovers what the true meaning of love is, and how she can finally move on from her past and save herself.

I READ THIS WITHOUT KNOWING IT WAS LIKE A PART OF MR POPULAR AND ME AND WHAT
I have a feeling I'm gonna smile a lot throughout this and cry too but that's okay because when you cry while reading a book that's how you know the author is a great author
