To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really like the Drummond series - it is soooo good. I was excited to hear the first story about the kids of James and JJ. They had a challenging experience in their early relationship and unfortunately so does their son JoJo. Trigger warning- this book does include a rape. While the full details are not disclosed, it may be a trigger. I appreciate that September North explores teenage sexuality with care and doesn't make it all hearts and flowers. She addresses the ugly side with sensitivity and care. Recommend reading Drum, Fight, Break first.
This is a wonderful story. The author touches on some difficult subjects in a sensitive way but doesn’t shy away from the sad reality of those subjects and the work involved in coming out the other side. The characters are likeable enough that you want to see them succeed. I’ll admit to having shed some ugly tears for Jojo and Faith.
