    BRILLIANT This is one of those books you ll either love or hate and I LOVED IT I actually couldn t put it down and finished it in one sitting wasn t hard as it s just shy of 200 pages I loved the characters and think they re really beautiful It could ve gone into a bit detail with the nasty pasts of some of the characters so I m looking forward to this in the prequels I liked the way it showed each of the characters first person views, even though it was hard to follow at times it showed how si [...]

    Somewhere during the tumultuous years we call being a teenager, I read a book called Voices that impacted me strongly at the time and stuck with me for many years The concept of the book was the background and letters of teens who committed suicide, and was based on non fiction cases Each time I connected with the kid in the current story and each time my mind cried out for them to choose life things would get better When I ran across Ashley Sanders Facing Demons the write up reminded me of the [...]

    There was something missing from this book and I can t really place my thoughts on it The raw emotions where that, you can t deny that I found myself tearing up a bit, mostly with Rebecca s and Matthews stories Not that Jason s and Felicities weren t bad, just common when it was being described I enjoyed that aspect Now the fact that it constantly changed points of views was a bit bugging Especially since to show the change it was nothing spectacular rather than a bold face of the persons name [...]

    A thought provoking novel which will touch every human emotion possible You will laugh, cry, feel humility and despair as you read each of the characters individual stories.When we are faced in our everyday life by people who are high on drugs, very angry or to the other extreme withdrawn, reading this book could change your perception of that person.The book teaches us that behind every heartache lies a reason and if we took the time to listen and learn the persons story, this could fulfil our [...]

    I love stories of redemption and of salvation Finding your inner demons is hard And to see an author create such intensity in the characters he has come up with, it felt like I was right there, helping them fight their battles with them.What I love most about this book are the characters These character carried lots of weight on their shoulders I loved reading about each character back round and how they come to be who they are All of these characters play such an important role in each others l [...]

    This was one of the few fiction books I read where I really felt like I was invested in the health and overall trials of the characters I liked that these were real people dealing with real things head on, and that their recovery is what we were dealing about So many novels allude to the painful things people face in life, but end with a mention that they are working at it or show us who they are after the work is done Not so in, Facing Demons We get to see right into the minds of each of the fo [...]

    This is a book I received for free through First Reads It is a short book with only about 200 pages.but it took me awhile to get into it Once I did start really reading it, I found it to be interesting and the character stories were almost unbearably sad The one thing that really bugged me was the way the author would actually make the teenagers speak.I kept thinking to myself that kids that age don t REALLY talk like that or do they even THINK of things like that I felt like Ashley was trying t [...]

  13. Amanda Croley

    Facing Demons was the story of four young people s very different struggles All of them brought together by one man and his orginization for another chance at life While the idea was good, it was also extremely unrealistic It seemed obvious to me, and I may be completely wrong, that the author hasn t spent any time with some of these types of people Some of the situations in the book would never happen in real life.

    I received this book as a win.I really could not get into this book at all I m not sure if it was the length of the book or how it was written I did not really care for the flip flopping between all 4 characters within each of the chapters It just did not seem like your typical fiction book to me.

  15. Kimberley Meier
