Publisher's Summary

From USA Today bestselling author Rochelle B. Weinstein comes an emotional novel for mothers, daughters, and anyone who has ever felt imperfect.

Emma and Bobby Ross enjoy a charmed life on the shores of Miami Beach. They are a model family with a successful business, an uncomplicated marriage, and two blessedly typical twin daughters, Zoe and Lily. They are established members of a tight-knit community.

Then, on the night of the girls’ fifteenth birthday party, they learn of Zoe’s heartbreaking mistake - a private and humiliating indiscretion that goes viral and thrusts her and her family into the center of a shocking public scandal.

As the family’s core is shattered by disgrace, judgment, and retribution, the fallout takes its toll. But for Emma, the shame runs deeper. Her daughter’s reckless behavior has stirred memories of her own secrets that could break a marriage, a family, and friendships forever.

Avoid!

The narrator was irritating and the story, although interesting from a contemporary viewpoint regarding social media, was over dramatic. I listened to this for about 2 hours, forcing myself to get to the end but I just couldn’t listen to the hysterical mother anymore.
The whole experience was simply irritating

Save your $ - find a better book...

I couldn't stomach the writing...I actually thought it was satire because of the AWFUL conversations being used by the characters. I even googled the book to be sure. There is literally no person I know or encountered in real life that would talk like the mother, father, daughters (even the friends), in this book...and I only made it to chapter 4. I read other reveiws and knew it would not get better...

The narration by Tavia Gilbert is not her best; I'm sure the writing didn't help but I've listened to my favorite narrators read less than stellar books and I was not bothered as much - this was like chalk on a blackboard.

I see why it gets high reviews because of the subject matter; sexting, cyberbullying, social media as a weapon of mass destruction, etc...but damn, I can definitely read a better book with remotely believable characters who talk like real people.

Run from the book - find a better story with the same message. I wish this lived up to it's potential

In This Age

In this age of social media & helicopter parenting it is not surprising to find this cautionary tale. For some it may resonate as "too c!ose to home". The story is not without its flaws however. The author has indulged herself in the murky pool of melodrama. The teen daughter caught up in consensual experimentation, an hysterical mother drowning in her own youthful hidden indiscretion & a father who is little more than a selfrighteous jerk. The story plays out to a predictably sappy ending. All in all, not my cup of tea

Painful

I had high hopes for this story, but for me it just went on and on and on. I eventually skipped through just so I could find out how it ended. The mom in the story was very whiny and overly dramatic for me. Maybe some people are like this, but she really started getting on my nerves.
I personally was just glad this was over.

Not For Me

This one was a struggle for me. I am on a path to healing and I thought this might be a tool, but it's not. I can see the appeal of a story like this one, but it's just not for me. Enjoy.

There but for the Grace of God go I!

We have ALL done things that we would not want out there for the world to scrutinize and this book shows just how much today’s technology can devastate a person by putting a spot light on our indiscretions.

Hard book to rate.

This is a hard book to rate. The story is an important one to be told and Emma's way of choosing to show love over all other feeling after the choices her daughter makes is incredible. What's hard to follow are the unnessesary side stories about the employees, I found myself skimming through a lot of parts to get back to the story. While the beginning is great, the ending is pretty weak. There's so much build up to in the first chapters and it just starts to get very repetitive in the middle. So much that the ending feels rushed. We are taken deep into each of the family member's personality and reactions that when things take a very sudden turn it's not believable and almost disappointing. The dialogue is not believable either, but my biggest issue was the happy ending. The message was lost when the crime is forgiven once they realized who committed it. Zoe's mistake affected only herself and the person she was with but the one holding the camera is inflicting damage on another person. Those mistakes should not be weighed the same.

story line was very slow moving.

parents rehashed problem over and over arguing same issue. daughters reaction to what she did was cavalier and concerning. father's response to why he acted as he did was pathetic.

Excellent

Excellent story so true to today's way of how technology can rule our lives. The story brought tears to my eyes, well written and very good narrator.
