While both worlds Jos inhabits are intricate and complex, Young brings them each to vivid, sometimes painful reality. I’ll be honest—this is not a book for the faint of heart. Ms. Young explores some dark themes here—homelessness, mental illness, betrayal.

the true story has never come out - Play Dirty (Jordan’s Game #4) by J.A. Huss

18++ "This plot line just twists and turns. Jordan's backstory is doled out piecemeal keeping us entranced and turning the pages as fast as we can.
