Layla is a typical teenager in a coastal country town, still at high school with a job at the local cafe. Her best friends have boyfriends but she’s the odd one out, so she’s very flattered when her good looking boss starts paying her attention. But things start to spiral out of control which have ramifications for years to come.
Told in now and then chapters it was very easy to follow but I personally found the subject matter in the ‘then’ chapters a confronting read. (Me too movement). I have never encountered anything like that myself but looking at it as an older woman and mother.
I found the second half of the novel much more engaging and really wanted to know the outcome.
I do think it was very well told and I could imagine how a susceptible young woman would feel flattered with the attention. Well worth the read.
Thank you for Netgalley and the publisher for a copy to read.
