Book Review By Timberley Revis
Sydney has always been the invisible one in her family and in the world. She's never had the spotlight like her brother. Now that Peyton, Sydney's brother has been sentenced to jail for a drunk driving accident he really has the spotlight. Sydney realizes that everyone is so focused on her brother that no one ever stops to focus on the victim in the accident. After all Peyton has the spotlight so that leaves Sydney finding her place in the world and in her family. After Sydney moves schools she comes across the Chatham family, she is immediately welcomed and already feels like family to them. For the first time in her life she isn't questioning her place because Mac is watchful and protective over Sydney.
This book is very interesting to read and will surprise you more and more every time you turn the page. The most interesting part was finding out how Sydney finds her place in the world and with her family. Not only with the world and her family but also with her friendships, love, and herself.
Sydney moves schools after all the stuff that has happened with her brother. Moving schools means finding new friends. After she adapts to the new school, she then meets the Chatham family. She already feels like family to them. It's never easy making new friends at a new school if you've always felt like the invisible one.
Since Sydney has always felt like the invisible one she's never really had a real relationship. That is until she meets Mac. Mac is the brother in the Chatham family. Sydney actually feels seen around him.
Finding herself was challenging, but she didn't give up she kept searching for herself. When she found her place she was happier than ever.
