    3,5 4 STOP STARSThis is my first book by Alison G Bailey,and honestly I didn t know what to expect.What did I find in this book I found an emotional,heartbroken and sweet story.STOP is a realistic story which deals with a serious problems that concern us and each character has to deal with something Hollis Murphy has a bad accident when she was younger.Now is her time to go in college but is she ready I don t want to say anything else about the story because if I say I think that I ll give 3,5 4 STOP STARSThis is my first book by Alison G Bailey,and honestly I didn t know what to expect.What did I find in this book I found an emotional,heartbroken and sweet story.STOP is a realistic story which deals with a serious problems that concern us and each character has to deal with something Hollis Murphy has a bad accident when she was younger.Now is her time to go in college but is she ready I don t want to say anything else about the story because if I say I think that I ll give away things that you shouldn t know before you read it I loved all the characters especially Hollis who has to deal with a bully.She has an accident and now she has some scars and tries to hide them..But when she meets Benton I will not say who he isbecause it s a spoiler so you will learn about him when you read it she wants him to be happy and live his life.I liked her because she is sweet and she became strong through the book.Risher is so sweet and funny He is your typical college boy who will make you fall in love with him Alison G Bailey has a beautiful way writing I m sure that this book is going to touch your hearts and make you love it What I learned after finishing this book Everybody should love themselves exactly how they are I think you should definitely check this book ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    Alison G Bailey isn t new the book world, but she is new to me I stumbled upon her books a few months ago when my bestie asked me to hold her hand during a reread Of course, I said yes If this book was good enough to reread I needed to read it at least once That book shook me to my core I am talking frantic voice messages, balling my eyes out, even sweating Next thing I knew I was reading all her books back to back In my opinion books should make us feel and Alison knows how to write b Alison G Bailey isn t new the book world, but she is new to me I stumbled upon her books a few months ago when my bestie asked me to hold her hand during a reread Of course, I said yes If this book was good enough to reread I needed to read it at least once That book shook me to my core I am talking frantic voice messages, balling my eyes out, even sweating Next thing I knew I was reading all her books back to back In my opinion books should make us feel and Alison knows how to write books that make you feel I was terrified to start this book, I messaged my bestie and told I was scared, but going in I sat down to read a little before bed and ended up staying up finishing Alison s writing is real, raw and emotional In just a few pages I fell in love with her characters, but by the end my heart was breaking for the real people who live these experiences daily Stop is a story three young college students just trying to really live their lives Hollis is a beautiful girl who s face was disfigured after an accident the summer before her senior year Fisher is the perfect guy on the outside, but his character just proves nothing is as perfect as it seems Benton is just trying to own who he is and let me tell you, that is real life Everyday people put on a mask of who they are supposed to be, afraid to be themselves Stop allows us to follow these students through their struggles of adolescence and like real life it isn t always pretty What I really loved about this story it made me think I genuinely hope I am not alone, because everyone has struggles and needs kindness and acceptance to be themselves So this review is probablythan you bargained for, but this book is MORE ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review

    While I did enjoy reading this story for the most part, I absolutely hated the ending The main character s storyline felt incomplete and rushed Even with the epilogue, the story ended too abruptly And I truly feel like the secondary character Abigail should ve had her own story.
