Emotional romance story
This cover alone speaks volumes to the heart and emotion behind this story. The Ones Who Got Away is a heartfelt and sensitive exploration of trauma, grief, healing, and forgiveness. The two main characters are survivors of a school shooting from when they were in high school. Both of them deal with regret and pain from that day. This is a tough book to read because it touches on such a hard topic. But Roni Loren writes it with sensitivity and healing in mind. The main characters, Liv and Finn, were able to reconnect and help each other through such a painful memory. Liv and Finn are messy, complicated, and realistic as they struggle to move on and confront their PTSD. This is also a sweet and emotional love story and it demands your full attention. Liv and Finn seem completely meant to be and I could not put this book down until they were firmly reunited.
