I love how you even though there are so many characters, you make them so different that its recognizable. I find your characters greatly written, I can get annoyed at Carly as an individual while Angel is different and grounded so my interest in her is different than Carly’s. I enjoy reading the family fight over nonsense but also stay true to values and behaviors. Not changing so quickly. I like Leo and Angel for that the most because you show human reasoning. I have seen so many stories where family members or friends by pass unethical behavior just so the main characters have a plot more smoothly. You instead, have Angel slowly build trust, to which I can relate too and Carly facing the burden of her actions. Leo, as well, I understood when he feels like he going to be attacked due to what happened. His behavior is not rational however, you dis-play non rational emotions well due to being scared, guilty or other reasons, and hiding positive reactions of Angel deep inside. You even proved that Angel’s point of Carly’s possible betrayal to Leo didn’t completely change his mind. He stayed true to her but also didn’t immediately ignore Angel even if it wasn’t brought up again due to probably Leo’s not so great actions. Leo didn’t quickly change for plot, his character was consistent and changed every now and than like a real person would.

The story line, the changes in POV, setting and individual problems plus goals keep me very interested in this book. Like I made sure to read every chapter because it always gave me something new or something else to follow or figure out. Overall, a great story! I hope you continue!
