Zink has really upped the ante in this sequel. Everything that Grace was feeling and going through is so much more real than the first book (Lies I Told). While the ending seems a bit too put together, I really like what happens with all the characters, and how Zink isn't afraid to get a bit dark when we're inside Grace's head. It wouldn't be believable if she didn't have some darker thoughts, considering her life, but Grace doesn't let that hold her down or give up. A quick read and needed sequel, Promises I Made was an enjoyable read with a nicely wrapped conclusion to this duology. I'm happy I read these books.
Disappointed after the first book. The first book left me waiting for the sequel. The ending was a little to tidy and the relationships weren't as dynamic as the first book.
