:) submitted by lec.dank on June 18, 2016, 12:59pm Oh man, this finally got published in English! Where do I start... This is a great little romance, but the bullying will make you want to cry. The story is lovely.

Where to begin? submitted by LuzrovRulay on August 10, 2016, 6:07pm I can't remember what made me pick up this series, but from the moment I did, I was hooked. It's an incredible story about the consequences of bullying and everything it can do to the victim. It's fascinating to see how all the characters grow -- including the initial bully himself -- and come to see how he regrets his actions and must face the reality of what he's done.

I'm still trying to get my hands on volume six to read more because I'm dying to know what happens.

An absolutely incredible read -- and I truly hope more people come to appreciate this series.
