Book Review - Accepted Fate

Book Review

Accepted Fate by Charisse Spiers

4 out of 5 Stars

Accepted Fate is a story of a 17-year old Kinzleigh, who knows what she wants in life.  She knows what she wants to be when she graduates college, she wants to have her friends involved in her life, and her family is important in her life.  What she doesn't want is love.  She has seen first-hand how it has ruined her brother Konnor's life and wants nothing to do with it.  But, can she actually control that?

Kinzleigh thinks she has it all planned out until her parents lay a huge surprise on her.  Then, things start changing in her life that she can't control.  Can Kinzleigh deal with the changes and accept her fate, or will she fight it with all she has and live in the world she has created for herself?

There were so many things right with this book, that they outweigh the wrongs.  While reading the book you tend to forget that this is about high-schoolers.  It is a story of love and of opportunities.  I can absolutely believe in the love story for people so young, because it happens every day.  I can also understand when circumstances change and life situations change, because - again - those happen every day.  These were all believable and plausible situations that could happen true to life.  

The negatives were glorifying sex for underage youth.  However, it doesn't come without consequences, which helps me on this.  I know it happens, and it isn't uncommon in today's world.  But, glorifying it isn't necessary either.  But, like I stated earlier, there are consequences, and they are stated in this book and that helps the story.  I'm also not a fan of stories that start to take off half way through the book and then end in the height of the story, only to pick up in another book.  I guess I'll have to go and buy the next book to see how it all ends!

All in all, this was a great book.  It kept me involved and wanting to know what would happen next.  The descriptions were vivid and I could picture everything in my mind's eye.  Charisse Spiers did a great job of keeping the reader enthralled in the story and wanting to know what the next twist would be.  She just proves, sometimes we just need to accept our may not always be such a bad thing.
