    brilliant

    Margaret McHeyzer has done it again. Again like her novel Ugly, which impacted me on every level, Mistrust did the exact same thing and is nothing short of absolute sheer brilliance that left me completely breathless and quite frankly shattered me to my very core. We meet Dakota. She is young, beautiful, smart, popular at school, has an abundant of great friends, a cheerleader and her boyfriend Levi is just dreamy. She is so in love. An what is even better is prom night is coming. Dakota is so excited she cannot wait. She has waited so long for this night. But what is supposed to be every girls special night with her boyfriend and friends, turns into a nightmare that no young girl should EVER have to deal with or live with. I don't want to give much away about this novel, but believe me when I say it is a MUST read, not only for us adults, but for young girls and guys too for that matter. I would even go as far as saying that it should be a part of every school curriculum world wide. And why? Because Mistrust takes us on a real life journey of when a young girls trust is shattered. It takes us on a journey of a young girls innocence completely broken. It tells the story of a young girl hurting, betrayed, disgusted within herself and doubting everyone around her. It tells a story of a beautiful young girl who no longer lives, but simply exists, trying to get through a day. Mistrust is raw, gritty, and at times highly confronting which I am sure would cause triggers for some readers, but this is real guys.....This is what young girls of today are faced with.....This is what young girls need to hear....This is what young girls need to know, because as they say knowledge is power, and if every young girl knows about the dangers lurking in the shadows, they can do so much more to protect themselves, and know that they are never alone. A brilliantly executed read that will hit you right where it hurts......Because this is reality. A 5 star read

    Just had to keep turning the page

    Margaret has shown us the emotional rollercoaster & devastation of someone who has been abused. Not sure if Reece's ability to accept so many knockbacks & still be totally undertanding plus supportive rings entirely true. Loved this book too. Great read

    Mistrust

    It's been a while since I wrote a review, but I felt this book deserved one. The story was beautifully written, initially I was impatient with the decisions the protagonist made, but then I tried viewing things through her eyes and realized why she made certain choices. Even adults cannot handle such situations, and she was sixteen, an age when the future still seems bright and explorable, to have that snatched away is horrific. We need to stop blaming people who have suffered this and realize that they did not ask for this, they are the victims in this scenarios and not the perpetrator. Dakota was lucky to have a good support system in her family, not everyone is that lucky. This was a five star read for me, very inspirational. I would recommend it. Going on to read another book by the same author, titled 'Ugly'
