About the book:
Blake Solomon had never before heard such heart-wrenching stories until now. Jason gang-member, Rebecca a child prostitute, Matthew an African refugee, and Felicity a reckless rich kid, make up the newest group at Blake's Anchor Beach Rehabilitation Clinic.
Each have seen more than their share of tragedy and have reached a point of desperation where all hope seems lost. Leaving behind worlds tainted with drugs and alcohol, violence and abuse, self-harm, and street-life is easier said than done. Unexpectedly, these four young lives collide in extraordinary circumstances as they attempt to salvage any glimmer of strength and self-belief they have left.
Blake's battle to save all four from path of certain self-destruction is the toughest he's ever faced. Is a quick-fix all he has to offer before feeding them back to the lions? Or will he keep his promise in helping them to face their demons?

This really is an awesome book. I enjoyed reading this book and was saddened throughout. I have done drugs in the past and have been clean for five years, so I kind of know what the different characters were going through, but no way did I have it even half as bad as any of them. I am not going to give details, you ask why? Again I will say it is because I hate when someone does that too me. Yes I want to know from someone if they think I should read the book, but do I want them telling me everything that happens? Ugh no way! My favorite character is Rebecca and I cannot wait for her prequel to come out. This is the first book I have read by Ashley Sanders and I cannot wait to read his other books. Go get this book now. You will not regret it!!!
