This is my first book in Ms. Hammond's Asylum series. For  a YA, not only does scratch the surface but digs deeper into the life of its characters, displaying the good and the bad that gives life to each one of them particularly its main protagonist.

"I became that fine piece of expensive china, shattering while it crashes into a plaster wall."

Aurora Jean is one of the most real characters that I came to read about throughout my reading experience. Her problems may not be unique, but it is still quite as painful for a girl living to learn who she is. As a result, her trust is difficult to earn, as well as her love, and her life as something that is meaningless. Despite this, there is that tiny point of light throughout her life: her best friend, Edward. Their relationship keeps Aurora Jean afloat from her thoughts, making her see that there is still hope despite the situation. Will her secrets make them closer or will it force them apart?

The way the story flows is what keeps me turning one page to another. There was a balance between her struggles and her hopes, her nightmares and dreams. As I kept reading, Aurora Jean became more real, her story needing to be told.

Just South of Biloxi is the type of book that shows the reality of life, of one's struggles. The question is would we go down or would we find that pin of light out of the darkness.
