The Lonely Girl by Gracie Wilson

Today's review is Gracie Wilson's The Lonely Girl.

Blurb:One night can change it all. One argument can leave you reeling. A look can take you to a place you can never return from again. What happens when one day, you wake up and find your world has been turned upside down? The person you love is gone. The life you thought you'd have is no longer one you see being able to get back to. You lost the one person you loved more than anything. They tell you to move on, try. For them. It’s what they would want. But is it really? So I try. 
This time, will be different. I slowly start to put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, only to have it broken again, by someone I thought I trusted. My heart's barely healed, my world just starting to make sense again, when tragedy and devastation strikes. My circumstances leave me asking one question… Is it worth the risk to love again?

Here is the story of Becca. We follow Becca for about a year and a half and find her about 8 months after a horrific car accident took the love of her life. As you would expect, the accident has messed with Becca’s at her very core. We follow along as she wonders if she is ready to love again.

This story pulled me in from the start and kept me glued to it. I admit that I didn’t *just* finish this story. The moment that I finished I literally said out loud, “NO! What the hell? She can’t finish it like that!” and then I sent a Facebook message to Gracie begging for book two. I had to see what happened next. (Let me just say, WOW! That is what happens in book two... W O W!)

I don’t think this is too much of a spoiler, but my favorite quote would have to be “Did I hear that right?” Alec exclaimed, “You agree he’s an asshat? Finally!” If I had to change one thing about the story, it would have to be the back and forth. I won’t go into more detail in case you haven’t read it yet.

All around I felt this was a great story and I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
