Hott Synopsis:

Twelve years. When Camille’s father deserted her and her mother Uncle Scott swooped in to save them. Camille has been trying to pay him back ever since she was able. At some point the debt has to be paid right?

Camille is ready for her dream. Ready for her community center. Ready for her house. Ready for her family. When will Uncle Scott let her be who she is instead of who he wants her to be.

Hott Review:

I didn’t love this book. The beginning was terribly confusing and I felt like an eavesdropper that missed most of the conversation. Then it just seemed to mosey along. I read the whole thing because the characters were very interesting and I liked them but I kept getting everyone confused because there were so many.
There wasn’t much of a “Christian” aspect to this book. No pronouncement of faith or anything like that just the absence of violence, foul language, and intimacies.
