    Emotional, heartfelt and wonderfully paced

    While this is a book about abuse, it is so much more. I was so touched by Ronnie, and I could see where she was coming from the whole time. While I wanted her to get out of the relationship the first time, I think that her reasons are understandable, and I *almost* want to sympathize with Shawn. I am not a bad person, trust me, you can just see the person that he used to be and how he changed through her memories of how they met and fell in love. His situation at home is just so hard and I wish that he would have gotten help instead of continuing the cycle of abuse. But, indeed that is not the case.
    I also really love the character of Luke, I could not get enough of him, and he is perfect best friend material and beyond. I can totally see why Ronnie feels so safe and comfortable around him, and why she ultimately falls for him. His concern, his jokes, and his familiarity are all written so well! And while I am on characters, because I am totally a character junkie, they make or break stories for me, let me talk a bit about a few of the others in the book. I appreciated so much how Ronnie's dad was written. He was present in her life, and there for her. He could sense when things were off, no matter how she tried to hide. Sure he made mistakes, but doesn't everyone? Also, Mindy is supportive and the friend that we all wish we had.
    I really like the way that everything ends, and how Ronnie accepts the time to heal and time to herself, but can eventually pick up the pieces of her life and move on. It really is a story about healing and finding yourself even in the toughest of times. I like how her and Mindy challenged themselves to do new things each year, and grow into themselves and figure out who they are.
    Ms. Perry has written an emotional, heartfelt and wonderfully paced story in Knee Deep that is sure to make you feel for the characters as you fly through the pages.
