The Novel Every Last Promise written by Kristen Holbrook is a simple read but introduces ideas that are commonly not expressed in your childhood. It promotes awareness of sexual harassment,self confidence and drinking awareness which are often neglected in books for younger audiences. A young girl in a small town located in the Missouri deals with a tragic death that appears as her own fault. It brings to the attention that you cannot always trust the people that you surround yourself with. The product of self defense leaves the young girl Kayla to lose her friends and the support of her hometown. After the scene of the crime, she heads off to Kansas city where she lives with her aunt and learns the value of self love. In the end she finds the people who have her back and the people who were fake and two faced to her. Definitely a good book to pick up if you want to learn about horrific tragedies.
