This is the second book in the A New Life series. It leads us to Tori leaving the hospital and becoming a little more independent. She's got a job and lives in a halfway house with reasonable rules. There she not only faces her past, but realizes something important. She's an alcoholic. She goes through more life changes, gets into exercising, fixes up an old motorcycle she found in the garage and makes new friends. She gets emancipated and officially becomes sixteen, which I think is stupid considering she's really 24. The FBI better hope she doesn't find out they're paying her. She might just end up running away when she comes into contact with somebody from her old life.
Tori faces many challenges and though some may break her she gets right back up to fight it through. She doesn't let anything keep her down. Even though she puts off this tough persona she really is sweet and her heart gets easily broken. For all her worldly views she really is quite innocent and naive in some areas. It only makes her more attractive.
I loved seeing her come out of her shell and hope to see more of it in book three.
Do read this series in order.
