Bella and Julian were friends since babies. They were two peas in a pod. Until one day Bella's life started falling apart. Julian betrays Bella's friendship. Her dad wants her back. She has two stepsisters. Now she must find a way too save Julian. One of Bella’s quotes was ' I don’t give a fig about what you say I will do any to save Julian'.
I truly and honestly loved this book and had no dislikes what so ever
