Coming Clean was an interesting read, and I’m glad I was able to obtain an advanced copy through NetGalley. The story was very original and the prose was easy to read. At times, the writing was difficult to understand and follow, but that may have been the fault of the eBook settings from my download. The story had a good flow and you grew to care about the characters and what they were going through.
My favorite thing was discovering the meaning of the title, which you will only understand at the end of the novel. Dawn comes clean and the resolution of her story gives you a happy sense of conclusion for her.
Overall, I liked this book, and would recommend it.
