Order in the Court by Casey Lawrence
This is book 2 in the YA series by Casey Lawrence. She is just getting better and better. I really, really liked the first one but I absolutely loved this one.I found that things flowed much smoother in this book. This book is about the final end of childhood for Corey.In this book she is hit by the fact her parents can't fix everything and life is unfair especially when lawyers get involved. Her safe places are invaded and there is nothing anyone can do to keep these things at a distance.On the other hand it is not purely hopeless, she made a couple of new friends, she holds on to the friendship of the two boyfriends left behind. They form the survivors club a place for the three of them to remember the good times, to focus on something other than the murders.
Corey grows and discovers she has more inner strength than she ever thought she did. She works through her grief and has found some peace by the end. This is a coming of age book where Corey has to growup faster than her classmates, despite being a year younger. I would recommend this book to most young adults. This may be triggering to especially sensitive readers as it includes Corey'scounrt testimony and several panic attacks. Her pain comes through clear. I received this book free in exchange for a fair and honest review.
