JoJo is not a normal girl. She is fighting her demons every day and she is trying to make it through the hard times as best as she can. Fighting anorexia is not easy and she knows it, which is why she is just about ready to give up. However, when her family and friends show her that her life is worth saving, she is ready to make an effort for herself. Carter is fighting his own demons and trying to run from a past that he just can’t shake off. But when he meets JoJo, he finds that maybe he can change his life and hers in turn. Maybe he doesn’t have to run from his past; he can accept it and simply move forward. What will these two tortured souls do? Can they find some solace in each other?
Consequences of Being JoJo by Anne Marie Citro is book 6 in the Sista's series. Although I have not read the previous novels in the series, I had no issue with investing in the story and loving the characters. JoJo’s story is heartbreaking, but her resilience is so encouraging. I loved how she regained her strength, took steps to heal, and became a better version of herself. Carter, on the other hand, is tormented by his past, but he too tries to rise up against it and do something with his life. While the actual element of romance is there in its tender glory, the connection between these characters is what drew me into the story. The author did a wonderful job of creating two realistic characters that had substance and were developed brilliantly throughout the novel. The two of them created a close couple; they understood each other and stood by each other’s side.
