Review :Castles on the Sand (Shattered Castles) by Emily Mah Tippetts

If there’s one thing Madison Lukas understands, it’s pain. The pain she feels when her mother ignores her completely. The pain her best friend endures as her parents starve her as punishment. The pain of a dangerous boy whose mother has to be carried away by law enforcement on a regular basis.

She gets it. She feels the pain of others as if it were her own.

But when a mysterious man claiming to be her long lost brother appears with promises of relieving her suffering, trusting him could reveal more truths than Madison is ready for. Because the truth can hurt, too.


What can you do when your life starts changing suddenly?One minute you are just a girl whose life is simple,and than step by step everything is different.

Madison never thought that her life was interesting,until she finds out something her mother never told her.The reason why her mother acts like she doesn't care about what Madison is doing .
The reason: A boy.A Mormon boy suddenly appears saying that he's Madison's brother and that she has two more brothers.That was the big secret her mother kept since Madison was just a child.
And then the boy who is considered a psycho just because he doesn't talk too much,starts paying attention to Madison.But soon she finds out that he was just a boy who had to much trouble in his life then to care about everything else.
One more thing,her best friend ,the girl she knew since forever hides something.Something huge and ugly,something that Madison discovers,but that happened almost too late.

Exciting and interesting,this book was beautiful and full of surprises.Just by reading the description i thought that this had to be something good,and it was.

So many things happened,some good and some bad,and i can admit that it was much better then i expected.
The story was new and amazing,the characters strong and brave enough to face their lifes,well not all but that's how it was.
Madison was my favorite,even if she did some things i didn't like.She was too good to everyone,you can say she was the girl everyone loved.But sometimes i wished she was different.
Between trying to understand why her mother acted like that and why Alex,the boy who didn't talk,chose Madison to be the one with whom he talked,i was a little confused.It was a pretty good story with good characters and a strong subject.I liked that.But there were a few things i'll never understand.

For example: Madison accepted everything her best friend did to her.That was something i didn't like.Something i wished that would change..And it did,but until that moment too many bad things happened because of that friend.

In the end what really mattered for me was what happened to Madison.The fact that Madison was happy and had the chance to meet her brothers and be happy.A chance to life the live she deserved with the people who loved her and the people she loved.
