The book is not only action-packed; it was also filled with lessons. The last chapters were heartbreaking and I might have shed a tear or two. This book will not only let you appreciate the value of a family and of your friends, it will also teach you that, at some point, when you are about to make a decision, you should think of how this will affect other people. It hurts, but sometimes, you have to think of the benefit of the majority not just of a few people. It might break your heart; however, you do not have a choice but to do it.
You're told that one day, you'll find him and your world will be filled with rainbows, pink ponies and lollipops. The thing that no one ever mentions is the definition of "fantasy". By the time you figure out that rainbows are rare, pink ponies don't exist and lollipops don't grow out of the ground, you're screwed. You kiss frog after frog waiting for him to turn into a prince, but a frog only knows how to be a frog.

I thought she was okay. Time has passed so I thought she put everything behind her. But she still remembers everything. I thought she was okay, but she was still living in darkness.

Men are not men anymore, women are not women. We are different. Women have stronger qualities than men, men have stronger qualities than women, and that’s OK. We are not equal. That isn’t to say or is above the other. It means, we have our own differences, and they should be cherished, not manipulated so we all become asexual, robotic, politically correct utilities.
“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; for they shall never be broken.”
Sahara Lee is damaged by grief and guilt. Ten years ago her world was turned upside down and she never recovered. One decision, one choice, one accident killed the person she was before. The old Sahara had family, friends, and the love of her life. Now Sahara isolates herself from any and everything she once loved. Immersing herself in fashion, art, and music as a way to escape the pain of the past, she accepts her lonely existence as penance for the role she played in the accident. That is, until she meets Tyree Barker. Back to Life reminds you that living and existing are two completely different ways to go through life. Grief will break you but guilt, guilt will destroy you. And once that happens, what can bring you back to life?
Never complain when things are too easy.
