The Way I Used to Be - The Way I Used to Be (Paperback)Amber Smith (author)
Written with sensitivity and compassion, Smith's empowering story of surviving trauma is perfect reading for fans of Kathleen Glasgow and Jennifer Niven.
All Eden wants is to rewind the clock. To live that day again. She would do everything differently. Not laugh at his jokes or ignore the way he was looking at her that night. And she would definitely lock her bedroom door.
But Eden can't turn back time. So she buries the truth, along with the girl she used to be. She pretends she doesn't need friends, doesn't need love, doesn't need justice. But as her world unravels, one thing becomes clear: the only person who can save Eden ... is Eden.
