This book is a completely non-traditional love story, and that’s what I love about it. Keeping You a Secret speaks the truth about the difficulties in life that not very many people see; either because they’re not around it, or they choose to not see it. I love how the book is more of a mental aspect rather than physical and is about internal emotional battles. But the thing I love the very most about this book is the passion it portrays very well. I’m a sucker for love stories, and if you are too, you’ll love this book. The author has a good voice, and she’s not afraid to write a controversial book, even though she knows that there are many people in the world that will not be happy with the theme of it. If you are an open minded teenage/adult, I’d definitely recommend this book to you.
