Good Intentions reviews:

4.0 out of 5 stars review, March 6, 2014
This review is from: Good Intentions (Paperback)
This is an intriguing coming of age book with an element of mystery. The protagonist’s struggle is very relatable, whatever your background or age.
5.0 out of 5 stars Really strong female characters and real struggles, January 28, 2014
This review is from: Good Intentions (Kindle Edition)
A book that opens with a friend, trying to help a sexual assault survivor is one that will grip you if well written. Lucky for readers, this one is: “A sludge as thick as molasses on a cold day filled my head and slowed my mind” is an example of evocation description that draws you into the aftermath of crime for those who watch loved ones struggle with recovery.Love, loss, family and secrets: a complex tale for complex characters. Don’t want to say too much more to avoid spoilers!

I look forward to more books by this author.

I enjoyed the writing style used for this novel. It was brilliant to write in the first person from many different points of view. I felt as though I knew and understood each character. Missing pieces of their personal stories were slowly filled in as the plot moved along. There were mysteries, because the reader knows there are things yet to be revealed. Too, it’s a coming-of-age story in many ways; a young woman discovers the truth about herself and about her family and comes to realize that the people who love her are her true family whether or not they share her blood.

I don’t want to spoil the plot for others, so I will just say I agree that love is love is love. Humans should love and support each other no matter what and no matter who we choose to love.

This was a great read by a talented author. Kudos to Aya Walksfar

This book was something of a surprise. The cover was a complete turn-off for me. The book itself was well written and edited and quite thought provoking. I found the main character appealing, although at times frustrating.
The other characters were well crafted.
It was an experience in self-discovery and acceptance of self, family and the life you are handed in general.
As I turned the last page, I was very glad I gave it a chance, despite the cover. And I’ve always known: you can’t judge……………..
