I quite enjoyed this book and just read it in under 2 hours as once I started it, I could not put it down. We are treated to Anne's POV as she takes us through a glimpse into her tragic life with her family, her escape from said family, finding Brian and so much more ( you won't get any spoilers from me). Having spent much time in Boston, I quite appreciate the setting of Southie and find it generally accurate. Mostly well-spoken, I did find some typos but nothing that distracted from the story. Anne treats us to tragedy, drama, adventure, action and bit of romance. Her first story is wrapped up neatly so I'm not left hanging terribly but I am eagerly await more as I became attached to these characters and this setting during my brief exposure.
