#BookReview: A Room Away From the Wolves by Nova Ren Suma via @RiseoftheReader

About the Book:

Bina has never forgotten the time she and her mother ran away from home. Her mother promised they would hitchhike to the city to escape Bina’s cruel father and start over. But before they could even leave town, Bina had a new stepfather and two new stepsisters, and a humming sense of betrayal pulling apart the bond with her mother—a bond Bina thought was unbreakable.

Eight years later, after too many lies and with trouble on her heels, Bina finds herself on the side of the road again, the city of her dreams calling for her. She has an old suitcase, a fresh black eye, and a room waiting for her at Catherine House, a young women’s residence in Greenwich Village with a tragic history, a vow of confidentiality, and dark, magical secrets. There, Bina is drawn to her enigmatic downstairs neighbor Monet, a girl who is equal parts intriguing and dangerous. As Bina’s lease begins to run out, and nightmare and memory get tangled, she will be forced to face the terrible truth of why she’s come to Catherine House and what it will take for her to leave...

My Review: Well I have to say that this one just didn't work out for me at all. This is the first book from this author that I have tired but even though I did not like this one I will try the others I have in my TBR stack.  This one just didn't work out for me. I found it very confusing and I just really didn't care for the story as well I didn't understand what was going on.  

Do I Recommend this book? I would say if you want to try this one grab it from the library
