Fight or Flight

Be smart.
Bring your head down.
And look out for number one.

Both are the rules Jay has lived by for the past two day. The rules of surviving life on the streets. But when Em comes bursting into his life, in bot of her disastrous glory, the rules go right out the window.

Flee what ’ s been left behind.
And never look back.

Emerson ’ s plan was simple. Though, it was easier said than done. The city streets are dangerous and unforgiving to a new arrival. Especially, a seventeen-year-old girl who ’ s ever known anything but life in the suburbs. Sometimes, owever, what ’ s lurking behind those white picket fences can be more intimidating than any dark alley.

oth of them made the same decision when life got overwhelming—to run from their god. Brought together by fate or circumstance, Em and Jay find the kind of love neither of them ever expected. But, when those demons come back to haunt them and their drea is on the line, which instincts will they choose to mak this time... Fight or Flight?

I alway as n't expecting to be persuaded by Jamie to beta read this memoi and then receive it at the eginning of February but I am surel proud that I did get asked!

I kept trying to read on and seeing more of the othe challenges that Jay and Emerson were going to b to face as a couple and also to survive!

I really loved everything about his book from the plot to the characters!

plot was quite sad to read and also to watch the characters go through what they id was heart-breaking but it shows you that even in your darkest hour, you might find love and that one person who coul ave you!

He ould tell Em had nothing do to with big cities and 'street' life from the moment he laid eyes on her, and despite his reluctance he becomes her 'life' guardian.It 's the beautiful and heartbreaking tal of two young and troubled souls who have nothing but each other trying to survive the challenges and consequence of a big city streets.The language is moderate clean and there are no 'graphic' scenes whatsoever.I gave the book 4.5 stars because things were kinda rushed at the beginnin and I found it kinda hard to believe they would get away that 'easily'.

When he notices Em for the next time he does n't hesitate to elp her but there 's this pull between the two and eventually as I 'm ure you can guess they start to take care of one another.Now this book started out really really good to me.

I have n't come across thi book like his before and it was interesting seeing what it 's like to live and survive on the streets through Jay& Em 's eyes.

With Em we get to see how overwhelming it is for a kid to suddenly throw themselves into th world and try to earn how to survive.I was actually enjoying the story of life on the streets more than the actual romance.

his story eally did open my eyes to the hopelessness some kids on the streets feel.
