Cherie's debut novel is all about embracing whatever life throws your way and finding the good in it. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started reading it, but I found that I enjoyed this story and wanted to read more.
Madison is pretty comfortable with the way her life is going. She doesn't like changes, and likes to be prepared for whatever is ahead. The changes of gaining a baby brother and having her boyfriend move away are things she tries to avoid.
So when the new boy in town, Isaac, shows up and completely shakes things up for Madison, she doesn't know what to think. The closer they get, though, the crazier everything else becomes. Including Madison's best friend seeing things that aren't there and desperately trying to keep it together. Will Madison be prepared for what she has to face in order to set things right?
From the very beginning I felt like Cherie did an excellent job of setting up her characters and their relationships. I felt like I was experiencing the ups and downs right along with Madison when she was trying to figure out Isaac and when things got worse with her best friend, Kaylee.
I had no idea where this was heading so I was really intrigued when things began to really go crazy. There was just enough mystery for readers to want to keep going and figure out just what was happening. I would have preferred a little more background and information, but that's just me. I like all that nitty gritty stuff.
Madison definitely had a lot to deal with in this book, none of which I want to give away for anyone who hasn't read it, and I can definitely see room for more books if that's what the author has in mind. Embrace is a fun, exciting read that I'm so glad I got a chance to enjoy.
