I received this book with a flash of excitement. I'd met the author on Instagram- actually we were following each other when she made the announcement of her book. I jumped at the opportunity to read it. Today's book is titled: Seeking Havok
Havok is an 18 year old, honor roll, high school student who has the misfortune of being the daughter of a stripper, prostitute and drug addict. Never having known a father or anything other than a life of poverty, Havok feels her mother needs her loyalty and support. Because of her mother's seedy lifestyle, Havok has a one true friend to lean on. Her only means of escape are dreams of attending college and listening to a radio DJ named Fade.
I love a good coming of age novel and Lila Felix is moving up there with the very best. The book was riveting and the characters were well developed. They could easily have been the next door neighbor or people around the corner. Her name also exemplifies the dark, unkempt life in which she has had the misfortune to be born into. The story is her struggle to provide support for a neglectful, unfeeling mother, while preventing herself from getting caught up the the same lifestyle.
Seeking Havoc was a great and fast read for me. It was visual, emotional and encouraging and a book I'd recommend to anyone. 📚
