Living Anonymous by Shataya Simms
5 out of 5 stars
I absolutely loved this book!!!! I started it on Sunday morning and stayed up until 1:30 am to finish it. I could not go to sleep without finishing this book. It keep me interested, nervous and excited throughout the entire book!
I liked that Shataya didn't spend a lot of time on the Aneesah's childhood neglect. She gave us exactly what we needed to understand the situation and moved on from it. I liked how every time I got comfortable with where the story was headed, Shataya would completely shake it up. There are a lot of things that I wasn't expecting in this book...like the return of Rita, Capree's secret, Vic's secret, Nyce's secret, and a whole lot of other excitement in between.
This is a coming of age story about overcoming obstacles, surviving heartache, and learning to love again. You fall in love with all the characters, good or bad, you develop a real connection to them. Sometimes you want to fight, cry, scream or drown in their depression with them. It's a love story on a roller coaster ride until the very end!
Oh, did I mention it ends in a cliff hanger? The best cliff hanger ever, but yet and still a cliff hanger! And that was the only thing I was mad about...that I couldn't continue this story. Shataya Simms did not write this book like a new author...
