Tell Me Why by Nessie Wallace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This one really pulls at my heart strings! Tell Me Why is a contemporary romance that just melted my heart. Jenna not only loses her parents, but she also finds out she's pregnant at the tender age of 17. Forced to move into a foster home for the last remaining months before her 18th birthday. I can't imagine the heartbreak she has been through!
There are so many characters I have fallen in love with in this book most notably is Bryson. I think I have just found my new "book husband" - yeah he just totally skipped right over the boyfriend status LOL!! He had me at "my forever", what he said when he first met Jenna. Now I will warn you Bryson has a hot temper and will jump to the wrong conclusions sometimes but I love how protective and loving he is to Jenna and her baby. The most memorable moment is right after Jenna and Bryson confront the biological father and Bryson shares his feelings with her. That moment brought tears to my eyes!
Another character I love is Caden, the 12 year old who is separated from his other siblings and has been through several foster homes worse than the current one. The little boy never shown love until Jenna comes into his life.
There are plenty of unsavory characters that I can't stand in this story like the drunk couple that foster children and beat them. The sad reality is there are plenty of real life foster homes just like that. Then of course there's Amanda who is the psycho-b***h willing to kill for what she wants.
I'm rating Tell Me Why a 5 out of 5 stars. Just an FYI, the book takes you through the POV of both Jenna and Bryson even replaying the same scenes. At first I was confused by it but by the end I enjoyed seeing everything through each of their eyes. Tell Me Why is the 1st book in the Why series by Nessie Wallace. I can't wait to get started on the 2nd one!!
