Haunted by the memory of her father’s death and subject to her stepfather’s abuse, Olivia Mansfield turns to drugs and alcohol to numb her pain. When her addictions lead to a fatal accident, she turns to Diamond Estates for help. There she befriends a group of girls struggle with difficult pasts. Together, the foursome overcomes self-destructive behaviors, feelings of worthlessness, and even the center’s resident mean girl.
Nicole O’Dell treats each of the girl’s issues with discretion and wisdom. I don’t say this often, but I loved this book. It truly was hard to put it down. Well-written and heart-breaking, The Wishing Pearl will leave you changed.
