Faking Fearlessness ALSO receives a 5-star customer review on Amazon!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars More of What Made 12 Bective Street Great12 March 2017
This review is from: Faking Fearlessness (Kindle Edition)
Picking up where 12 Bective Street left off, Faking Fearlessness details the author's continued battles with depression whilst her dysfunctional relationship spirals out of control. While the first book ended rather abruptly on 31st of December 1999, with many loose threads, the sequel has a much more rounded out ending, tying up the sad relationship between Christina and Aaron - the kind of bitter-sweet relationship most of us can relate to.

Like the author's character, Aaron is also a complex person with his own range of issues, most significantly drug addiction. But it also comes through just how much he genuinely cares and wants to help Christina through her problems. At times he manages to rise above his own weaknesses to do this and you find yourself really hoping they can salvage their relationship and help each other out of their respective holes. All of which makes the shocking culmination of this story even more of a gut punch.
