    A delightful YA Novel

    Truculent and defiant teenagers are not unusual, but ones that have to face one tragedy after another and deal with the consequences of their reaction to them are not. In this story, Ey Wade expertly portrays a young girl, Debney, whose mother fails desperately in the parental love department. When tragedy strikes, she makes one wrong turn that changes her life dramatically. An 18-year-old could go down one of two paths in these circumstances – the road to self-destruction or the road to self-fulfilment. Debney has to find an inner strength to choose the right one.

    This was thoughtfully written by Ey, mostly in flashbacks. Debney is a well-conceived character with spunk and intelligence, and despite the disinterest and lack of love from her mother, or maybe because of it, she is a warm and selfless character. Her closest friends, although diverse in character are likeable and their mixed ethnicity bonds them tightly. All the characters in this book were well-drawn, the story is nicely paced and the result is a delightful YA novel.

    A Must Read!

    This book is the story of the ultimate dysfunctional family and how against all odds and having everything stacked against you, you can rise above it all!! Debney is shunned and ridiculed by almost everyone at school. At home she has a mother who doesn't care for her at all and takes great delight in doing everything in her power to exclude her from feeling like she is a part of the family!! There were many times whilst reading this book that I wanted to jump into the pages and shake someone!! Debney's mother who was just so cruel and callous and downright evil, Debney's dad who should have had a backbone and stood up to Debney's mum and Debney for turning away Giante when he was so willing to be her support!! But that is the beauty of Ey Wade's skill as a writer. She has this ability to make you become invested in the characters. D.N.A is free flowing and well written. It is an easy although emotionally gripping read and I would highly recommend it to everyone!!
