I felt like I was reading this book constantly trying to avoid the proverbial "elephant in the room". Sean is 17 years old!!! I don't care how mature life on the streets and hardships made him...he was underaged and that just ultimately made this book too disturbing. I had trouble embracing Megan because she was an adult taking advantage of not only a teenager, but someone who had never had anyone ever take care of him and show him love. I got frustrated with her own immaturity and started to see her as a sick woman needing help.In those brief moments that I would try and forget this unacceptable detail of abuse, the love story MIGHT have been very touching and the details of how it grew very real. I just couldn't shake the unease of the situation and ultimately found the book disappointing.
