«Of course, the dress was white. This is what I’m supposed to die in, I thought. Not many people knew what their last outfit would be.
I pulled it over my head. It fit me perfectly. It had long, loose fitting sleeves, a modest neckline, and waves of material on the skirt. I hated it.
There were no shoes, and I was afraid I’d have to run through the forest barefoot but there weren’t a lot of options. Besides, I’d run barefoot over a bed of nails to get away.
“Scarlett, are you ready?” he called.
I looked in the mirror and took a deep breath. Time to fight for my life.»
Scarlett Garner doesn’t remember anything before the age of four—until a car accident changes everything. She starts to remember pieces of a past that frighten her. A past her parents hid from her…and a secret that could get her killed.

Scarlett Garner has no memory of her life before the age of four until a car accident turns her life upside down. Her parents hid the past from her, that and a very important secret that will certainly kill her if it ever gets out.
So, this is going to be a short review, since I think this book will be more enjoyable if you read it without knowing what's going to happen.
I love the main character and the plot and I really think this is an excellent book to advise you against some harsh realities from our world that you might not know about. It also talks about influences and how your perception of what's good and what's bad changes according to your society. If you grow up thinking something is right and then someone contradicts you, in your head, you'll still be right. What could happen if that ideal you grew up believing in shattered? This book tells you something very important about it.
I have to warn you that this book contains some psychological violence and some influences that might leave you uncomfortable, even though they're essential to the plot. Still, I think you should read it.
This book has everything you could ask for since romance to suspense and you might learn useful things while you're reading too, which is also great!
