Tessa Ever After

Tessa Ever After - Brighton Walsh I received a print copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley.

Tessa Ever After is the second book in the Caged In Winter series.
I liked the second book more than I enjoyed the first one. This time around you really get to see the struggle Tessa goes through as she tries to cope with growing up and dealing with coping with adult struggles even as her mind is still struggling with the fact that she's just little more than a teenager. Things get real when Jason enters the scene and has to deal with some adult responsibilities as well. Watching the two of them struggle through those phases both together and individually is something I liked getting to see. Brighton wrote the story well and handled some sensitive topics with respect both for her readers and for her characters. I enjoyed it.
