I don't even know what to say....But thank you for letting me re
I don't even know what to say....But thank you for letting me read and review this amazing piece of work!!!
This book was something else. It is hard (at least for me) to read these kinds of book, but only because our world we live in is crazy and I like to get away from it all threw reading....BUT I loved this story!!!! I know the cliff-hanger had me screaming for the next page!! LOL I can't wait for part 2. The characters had a very big impact on my heart and mind. I loved them all from poor Evie, to Zeke who doesn't want to be in any part of this mess, to Tony who is a vary bad boy!!! I know your sitting there thinking "How could you like a bad character?" Well all I can tell you is every character in this book fits so perfectly, and written with such heart it makes them amazing! I recommend this this to everyone!!

In LOVE with this series! The Things We Can't Change Part One:
In LOVE with this series!
The Things We Can't Change Part One: The Prologue is the first installment in a fabulous series from Kassandra
Kush has tackled the very difficult subject of an abusive relationship in a way that is both confronting
and informative. To everyone around her, Evie Parker is 'perfect' - beautiful, popular, wealthy and her boyfriend is
the equally beautiful, popular & wealthy Tony Stulls. They are THE couple in high school. As is often the case
though, appearances are not everything & there is a bleak, dark side to their relationship. Tony is unbalanced,
psychologically controlling & violent. Evie is terrified: terrified of what he will do to her, of what he will do to
himself & of people finding out what she is experiencing. The simple answer is that she should leave, or she
should tell someone, which seems so obvious. But the flashes of the Tony she fell in love with: sweet & loving,
combined with the threats he makes to harm himself make that option an impossible choice for Evie.
Zeke Quain is the quintessential bad boy. But really he's not - his attitude & style are carefully designed to help
him keep distance between himself & everyone around him so that he doesn't get hurt again. With a background
that couldn't be more opposite to Evie's, Zeke has to work at the Country Club that Evie & Tony are members at to
help support his family. His younger sister, Cindy, is his kryptonite. He will do anything for her & in fact does
everything he can to ensure she can pursue her dream of dancing. Cindy is the one person that Zeke can't say no
to. Zeke & Evie go to school together, but they mix in totally different crowds. Both know of each other, but their
interactions are generally filled with derision & disdain.
That is until Zeke discovers Evie's secret. Despite his vow to not care, he takes it upon himself to talk to her about
what is happening with Tony & to encourage her to speak up. The dynamic between Zeke & Evie is just
fantastic. There is no 'insta-love', in fact, they often can't speak with each other without one of them walking away
furious at the assumptions being made. There is an underlying attraction, not to mention Zeke's obsession with
Evie's hair, but it seems to me to be more about them recognising things in each other that they share. For Evie,
there's a sense of safety when she is with Zeke.
TTWCC Pt 1 is very well written. The characters have depth & I was completely engaged from start to finish.
Even the 'support cast' is so perfectly developed that I fell in love with Evie's dad, the self made success story,
felt indifference towards her stepmother & felt that I really got to know each of Evie and Zeke's friends enough
that they were meaningful characters in this story. The cliff hanger is massive - for a brief moment I wondered
whether the version of the e-book I had wasn't complete and I actually said "Noooo" out loud when I realised it
was, in fact, the end of Part One.
I can't wait for Part Two. Apart from wanting to know what happened next from the final moments in the story,
I want to see what happens with Evie and Zeke. It is absolutely not a given that they will be together. There are
so many obstacles to this it almost seems impossible: and yet I'd really, really love to see a relationship between
the two unfold. Don't let the prospect of a cliff hanger put you off - you will seriously miss out on a wonderful story
if you do.
