Bitsy: I might be only nineteen, but I know what I want. It’s Leka Moore. I don’t care that he took me in when he was barely more than a kid himself. I don’t care that he raised me. I don’t care everyone thinks being with him is wrong. I know we belong together, and the only person I need to convince is him.

Leka: I found her in the corner of a dark alley. If I hadn’t taken her with me, she would’ve died that night—or maybe worse. Before I knew it, she became the light in my dark life, the haven from the madness. I watched her grow up. I tried to teach her right from wrong. Now that she’s an adult, I’m feeling things that no good man should ever feel. But then…I’ve never been a good man. I have a chance at redemption by saving her from the greatest danger of all—me.


I’m not going to give you a summary because the synopsis says enough. What I can tell you is that I liked this story, at no time was I shocked by the relationship between Bitsy and Leka, yet I know that some will be shocked. It is true that Leka takes in Bitsy when she is 5 and he is 12, they grow up together but Leka is always there to protect Bitsy.

I liked to see Bitsy grow up, to see her become aware of her attachment to Leka, she is very intelligent, passionate but she does not like her body. She doesn’t like the girls around Leka because they are beautiful and she feels ugly next to them.

I love Leka, he’s a lovely boy who made a pretty impressive choice for a child his age. We can also say that because of this choice, his life will be turned upside down because he will have to do things he doesn’t like to earn a living and allow him to raise Bitsy.

I really enjoyed their relationship, whether it was at the beginning or when Bitsy was growing up, Leka is always very protective and Bitsy doesn’t want to bother him with his problems. The secondary characters are really not people I love, but I let you discover them.

Quick word: A story that deserves to be read and that I loved.


Je ne vais pas vous faire un résumé parce que le synopsis raconte suffisamment de choses. Ce que je peux vous dire c’est que j’ai aimé cette histoire, à aucun moment je n’ai été choquée par la relation entre Bitsy et Leka, pourtant je sais que certaines seront choquées. Il est vrai que Leka recueille Bitsy lorsqu’elle a 5 ans et qu’il en a 12, ils grandissent ensemble mais Leka est toujours là pour protéger Bitsy.

J’ai aimé voir Bitsy grandir, la voir prendre conscience de son attachement à Leka, elle est très intelligente, passionnée mais elle n’aime pas son corps. Elle n’aime pas les filles qui tourne autour de Leka parce qu’elles sont belles et qu’elle se sent donc moche à côté d’elle.

J’aime Leka, c’est un garçon adorable qui a fait un choix assez impressionnant pour un enfant de son âge. On peut aussi dire qu’à cause de ce choix, sa vie va être bouleversé parce qu’il va devoir faire des choses qu’il n’aime pas pour gagner sa vie et lui permettre d’élever Bitsy.

J’ai vraiment apprécié leur relation, que ce soit au début ou lorsque Bitsy grandit, Leka est toujours très protecteur et Bitsy ne veut pas l’ennuyer avec ses problèmes. Les personnages secondaires ne sont vraiment pas des personnes que j’aime, mais je vous laisse les découvrir.

En bref : Une histoire qui mérite d’être lue et que j’ai adorée.
