Title: The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Release Date: December 13th 2012
There and those who don’t get luck handed to them on a shiny platter, who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, who don’t get saved.
Luck was not on Callie’s side the day of her twelfth birthday when everything was stolen from her. After it’s all over, she locks up her feelings and vows never to tell anyone what happened. Six years later her painful past consumes her life and most days it’s a struggle just to breathe.
For as long as Kayden can remember, suffering in silence was the only way to survive life. As long as he did what he was told, everything was okay. One night, after making a terrible mistake, it seems like his life might be over. Luck was on his side, though, when Callie coincidentally is in the right place at the right time and saves him.
Now he can’t stop thinking about the girl he saw a school, but never really knew. When he ends up at the same college as Callie, he does everything he can to try to get to know her. But Callie is reserved and closed off. The more he tries to be part of her life, to more he realizes Callie might need to be saved.
OMG! I can’t even say if I liked this books of not. It ended on such a huge cliff hanger that I need to wait for the next one before I can say if it’s fantastic or not!
I really loved reading about the Callie and Kayden’s struggles, even though it was incredibly sad.
The story focuses on these two lost souls who are coming to terms with the difficulties they have experienced in their lives. They have a strong connection and are drawn together by a coincidental encounter. After not seeing each other for the summer they meet again when they bother start at the same college.
Callie has had traumatic experience which made her change for a child to, as she says, dead inside. I really couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be her. It disgusted me that none of the adults in her life took enough notice of what had happened to her.
Now, the blurb above is very brief on Kayden’s life, so if you don’t want to know anything, stop reading now!
I absolutely hated Kayden’s dad for what he did to him. What a poor excuse for a human being. He was awful and needs to be locked away! Who could do that to their own child? I was disgusting and I was completely outraged.
I loved how Jessica Sorensen writes her stories. I felt really drawn to keep reading the story and waiting to find out the ending. I’m hoping for a happy outcome in the next books! Thank God there’s another one!!!
