They both began their lives in foster care and were adopted by families that were friends. this allowed them to continue to nurture their friendship and bond. Shanice was a sweet, trusting and caring girl. Her faith in the boy who always protected her was beautiful. Even when Trevor's faith in himself wavered Shanice's never did. She shows us what faith, support and loving unconditionally truly means. Trevor's adoptive family nurtured him until a accident (or was it??) took them and he was forced to live with his adoptive dad's brother. Here is where Trevor's life changed. The sweet kid turned into a confused disoriented kid trying to survive again. He pushed shanice away to keep her from his horrible situation and protect her. Although in the end, it didn't matter. His uncle still hurt Shanice and her family and Trevor was still caught in his web. To escape the web, Trevor allowed himself to be caught. See Trevor is a computer genius and his uncle exploited this. Hoping this will keep Shanice and her family safe and find a way to get his uncle caught, Trevor goes to prison and makes a friend with Agent Hemphill. Over his years in prison, Trevor helps Hemphill with cases and in creating a way to catch his uncle. He also has Shanice with her unwavering faith and love lift his spirits and show him he is good and the boy she fell in love with when they first met. Finally Trevor sees this and gives up on being stoic. Yay.
their romance is sweet and beautiful. The love of Shanice helps keep Trevor from losing himself. Especially when he gets out and is up against his biggest challenge.
So touching to the heart and just a uplifting story even when you are sad about what is going on with Trevor you are uplifted by why he is doing some of the things he isA beautiful, touching book that shows us what unconditional love and faith is. We see two kids grow up and be there for each other even when one doesn't think the other is.
It made me smile to see Shanice and Trevor bond in foster care. Both emotionally damaged from their former home lives, there is a kinship between them. The younger Shanice clings to Trevor after he intervenes with older children bullying her. Trevor was her savior and she was content to simply sit in the same room as him.
Life is kind to Shanice and Trevor as they are each adopted out of foster care by friends. This allows them to stay in close contact. But when tragedy strikes, and they're suddenly separated when Trevor has to go to live with his uncle, I was sad for two reasons. One - it was obvious it hurt everyone involved to see Trevor leave, and two – I began to lose my connection to the story.
It seemed the longer Shanice and Trevor were apart, the less I liked her. Not that she was to blame in anyway for the separation, but she never even considered dating someone else, (or at least we weren't told she did). Even when Trevor was actively avoiding her and pushing her away, she was still #TeamTrevor. Perhaps if they had both been older when they met, I'd understand how her feelings could be so intense. But she was about five years old, and it is difficult for ME to understand how hero worship turns into romantic love so quickly, especially when it isn't reciprocated. I needed more interaction between her and Trevor! I needed to watch her grow into a young woman. I needed to see her have doubts and fears about Trevor, instead of always singing his praises. She never had to fight for the relationship...things just seem to always end up the way she wanted.
When Trevor has the epiphany that he's in love with Shanice, I just threw my hands up in the air. How? When? What? It was too much for me because by this time, Shanice is merely an echo to me.
One other thing that bothered me was if David thought his brother wasn't to be trusted, WHY did he tell him about Trevor's computer skills? I realize the story had to move in certain directions, but that one detail sticks out to me.
While it may not sound like it, I did like this story. Isaiah and Brenda, and David and Elena were all very likeable, and provided the love and stability Shanice and Trevor needed. I wish Trevor had a bit more time with his parents, then perhaps he would have learned to trust someone else enough (like Shanice) and not have to carry the immense personal burden alone. She may not have been able to convince him to handle things any differently, but it would at the very least, been something to strengthen the bond they had, and given us a chance to see how she handled herself under pressure.
Some readers search out the steamy sex in stories, and some want the angst. I'm a sucker for the romantic love, and while I didn't get my fix in this story, there is a lot of love to go around.
Thank you Ms. Elle, it was joy to see their story thru your eyes..
