Becca Trent lived her childhood next to a cruel woman—her mom—who lived to torment and neglect her. During her high school years, her mother married; bringing home not only a new husband, but a step sister her same age. The latter took over her Mom’s role—making Becca’s life miserable. Including stealing Ian—Becca’s best friend and boyfriend—Lisa treated her worse than her mother had for the previous fifteen years. A couple of years later, things ended up in tragedy.

Becca buried that part of her life in the deep corners of her psyche, but that only work during the days when the nightmares didn’t come back to haunt her. Her best friend, Dan gives her that family love she always lacked. Everything was close to perfect, until everything and everyone from her past came back. Now, she’s trying to figure out how to survive and keep that bond which seems now to be held together by a thread.

Note: This is the first part of a two book novel.

Where Life Takes You reminded me a bit of Cinderella.I thought I'd just get that out of the way before I started this review.But think about it.Becca has lived her whole life with a mother that didn't care and a step sister who tormented her and made her life a living hell.She's trying hard to live everything behind but what she went through always comes back to haunt her.But Dan gives her everything she's never had before until...her
 past returns.Literally.

I loved how the author revealed her past slowly and with a lot of details that explain what really happened to Becca all those years ago.It was heartbreaking,real and painful.Such a great read about a girl trying to forget and life's cruel decision to just turn her life upside down by bringing her past back.

Beautifully written and with an ending that really broke my heart,Where Life Takes You will introduce you to a world full of tears and pain.You have been warned.And obviously ends with a cliffhanger but there's a sequel.Thank God for small miracles!!!

And never forget that there's always light at the end of a tunnel...Which in this case is the sequel.I hope so anyway.
