Fight For Dawn by Komali da Silva

Angels Dawn
She should've known better than to hope her life could be normal after losing her best friend Nate. It’s hard enough to deal with the loss but now she “sees” him everywhere. Add that to meeting Gabe, the new guy who sends her heart racing and Dawn is certainly spinning. It’s almost enough to make her forget the demons that lurk in the shadows.

Unfortunately the many distractions aren’t enough to purge Angelo from her broken heart. Her hopes of ever being with him again have been dashed. He’s moving farther away and there is nothing she can do to stop it.Soon the demons Dawn wanted to forget about will remind her of their presence and she’ll have to abandon everything else. Not only is her life in danger, but the lives of everyone around her as well.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  

WARNING: Possible Spoiler Alert

I absolutely adore the intensity of the emotional atmosphere the author created. I was bawling my eyes out at the beginning of the book. The loss of Nathan, her first love, and the traumatic events had finally taken their toll.  I wasn't sure about the new guy in Dawn's life, but it didn't take long before I accepted his presence as it helped renew Dawn's strength. My heart is honestly torn between Dawn's new guy and her first love who cannot help his horrible circumstances,  but could, I think have fought harder for Dawn instead of wallowing in self-pity. 

I enjoyed Dawn's strong resolve to defend herself and a certain scene where she physically took control. 

The story-line was enjoyable enough to captivate my attention from start to finish. The dialogue is the cause of an internal conflict with me and certain scenes that ended vaguely or abruptly.  Those tiny areas caused distraction more than I would like to admit. 

It is an enjoyable story and I recommend it for young adult audiences.
