Now Available: Safe and Sound by Alli Hope

16 year-old, Hailey Perish, knows her life can’t get much worse. Since her dad split a few years ago, Hailey’s mother has spiraled hard and fast, careening toward rock bottom and threatening to take her daughter down with her. Hailey now marks time by evictions, her mother’s poker games, and Saturday School where she voluntarily shows up for weekend detentions to secure her one promised meal of the week. She has no room for relationships, especially with someone like her childhood love and junior class golden boy, Carson Hart. Hailey trusted him once and Carson failed her. She’s determined not to let herself be hurt again. 

When Hailey’s mom does the unthinkable and bets her own daughter in a high stakes poker game, Mitch, the loan shark, is all too eager and determined to collect on his debt. To him, Hailey is nothing but property. His property. And he’ll do anything to recover it. On the run from a fate that promises a much worse life than she already knows, there’s only one person in the world Hailey can call for help. 

Will Carson be there for her in her darkest hour and deliver her from harm’s way safe and sound? Or will he abandon Hailey—just like he’s always done—just like they all do? 

Alli Hope’s debut novel delivers an unforgettable story about love & surviving in the dark places. Safe & Sound contains mature situations and content. 

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

There are so many words that I want to put into this review, but alas if I did that, I'd give away the whole book. What I can tell you is that you will have all the feels. I am going to tell you right now that there are situations in this book that are for adults. There are scary situations and situations that make a 16 year old grow up super quick. I gave this book 5 stars becuse the writing is amazing. I dont know how Alli wrote this book and kept her wits about her. I give her mad props for writing a difficult subject.

Safe and Sound is a beautiful book. I would like to think that this book is about second chances. Because everyone deserves a second chance. This book, in my opinion, is an amazing book. Yes the subject in the book is very much in todays news, but I believe that Alli has tackled it well. I think you need to give this book a chance. I am glad that I did!
