Abra has taken words and layed them so gracefully onto the page, you just can't help falling in love with this novella. Dare I say more?
Breathtakingly beautiful, pure and simple.
Samantha lives with her father who resents her. As her mother was giving birth, she died in the process, leaving Samantha's father cold-hearted towards her. Abusive and hateful towards Samantha, she is so strong-willed, she doesn't let it get her down. Maybe it's because she knows her mother loves her so much that she has managed to keep a connection with her beyond the grave. The biggest connection is when the ladybug arrives.
Sam has always been an outcast at school, until the day that Leith has decided to grace her with his friendship. With all the things Sam's dad puts her through, it's nice to be able to have someone to talk to. Yet, Leith has problems of his own. Problems that Sam as oblivious to. And Samantha is the only one who can help.
