Be My Light
You have to save yourself…

Ebony knows this better than anyone. She’s been trying to pull herself out of the darkness for longer than she cares to admit, but each day only seems to bring her deeper. Her life revolves around her siblings, and getting through the next day. Music is the only thing that affords her an escape, but someone else might prove she isn’t really alone.

Sometimes you need a little help…

Marcus just might be the light Ebony needs to show her how beautiful life can truly be, if she would just notice him. He knows nothing is ever easy, but it is always worth it in the end. He’s got his own story to tell and she’s the only one he wants to share it with.

What would it take to let someone in?

Letting Marcus into her world might be the hardest thing Ebony has ever done, and when her past threatens to drag her back under again, will he be able to handle it? Can Ebony win against, what has always seemed like, insurmountable odds?

BE MY LIGHT by Ari Reavis
My Heart Will Go On
Be My Light turned out to be an emotionally evocative story about a young girl who suffered in silence and finally found her voice. It's about how she barely lived an existence and how she found reasons to thrive. It's about confronting the very thing that serves to break us and the beauty and pain of healing, hoping, and happily ever after.

Without getting too personal, it was entirely too easy to identify with Ebony. Anyone who has been abused as a child, who has lived in a home of dysfunction, and/or who has experienced any type of childhood trauma could relate, even a little, to Ebony's journey. I felt like the author was telling my story with a wee bit of embellishment. When did she get inside my head and dig through some of my ugliest memories? It was absolute insanity reading this story and while at times I felt overwhelmed by my emotions, I couldn't loosen my grip on this book. It held me within its thrall from start to finish. Reavis captured Ebony and her truth so stunningly that it was impossible to look away.

This story wasn't technically perfect but for the way that it spoke to me, for the way that it will forever touch so many of us, it is more than deserving of all of the stars I can give.
