Kelsey Summer, best friend to Bliss Edwards from Losing It, is this rather dark character who is roaming around Europe hoping to escape the demons that chase her while hiding from her out of touch parents. It’s a story about finding a way to deal with painful memories and discovering what it takes to be truly happy.
Kelsey was a character that was really hard to like. There were moments where you can see she struggled dealing with what happened to her when she was twelve and how her parents dealt with it, but most of the time she came off as being self-absorbed and selfish to the point that you just didn’t like her. Yes, there was a reason she acted the way she did, but
Hunt, the one person that was able to break through Kelsey’s walls, was someone I like the majority of the story, despite the secret he kept from Kelsey. He had a darkness to him as well, but he learned from the mistakes he made dealing with this and tried to help Kelsey see the path she was leading wasn’t helpful. He gave into Kelsey a bit too much and kept his secret a little too long for me to truly love him like I wanted to.

He makes a deal with Kelsey that leads to her finding happiness while exploring Europe. But as she finds that happiness, Kelsey discovers that what she thought was home may not be that at all.
