The Day She Cried
Publication Date: October 17, 2017
Genre: NA Romance
She was my first love. She was my first hate. The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty. Until I dimmed her light for good… Or so I thought. Now she’s back. Cracked. Broken. Lost. And for the first time in a long time, I feel free. Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future. Her misery is my music. Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating. For so long, all I’ve done is hate her. So why do I love her?
K Webster is my go to author I never read the blurb before I dive in and she never disappoints. You want to know when I read the synopsis, I read when I finished and it’s genius because it tells you nothing and everything.
This author is fearless in her writing she tackles difficult subjects and taboos that challenge the reader to think and feel. This story will take many of the readers back to a difficult time in their lives, it covers something that can and does happen to people of any age.Raven Rome and Courtney they carved a hole in my heart, I’ve never read a character as beautiful, gentle, misunderstood and tortured as Raven. She is the star of this book, words are powerful and the impact of her/the authors words are devastating in their intensity.Rome and Courtney start in pain and hate, i understand his feelings I just got him. Courtney’s guilt is a tangible thing it has shaped her present. Together they have a bond that is fragile and built on half truths misunderstandings and lies.If you take one thing from this story it’s that words are powerful words cause pain. Think before you speak or write imagine it’s you hearing or seeing those words. How would you feel ??reviewed by Sweet Spot Sisterhood
This story was not at all what I expected, but it was still absolutely perfect. It is a story that needed to be told, and it’s message was one that will hit home in one way or another. This story is devastating, and raw. You will be uncomfortable and sad most of the time, but you will also feel hopeful, and even swoon a little bit over Rome.
K Webster delivers her trademark angsty alpha male heartthrob, and pairs him with a slightly damaged girl that must fight through her insecurities and naivety to find that she was strong, beautiful, and unstoppable all along. On top of all of that, this story delivers a message about a topic that doesn’t get discussed enough. You can feel the author’s heart bleed through the pages of this story, and you can feel your heart breaking right along with it.
This story is unforgettable, and it is beautiful. I love angst, I love stories about finding the strength that you didn’t know you had, and above all, I love stories that lifts up the little guys up so that they can find their rightful place. A place they truly deserve to be.
I highly, and strongly, suggest this book to everyone. This story should be read by all. K Webster has really outdone herself with this amazing story. I feel bad for any other book that comes across my desk after reading this story. This will be a hard act to follow.

This book was so emotional and tragic. I felt so much throughout this book it was a physical experience for me. Being in Raven's position and everything she went through was so hard. The twisted social experience of high school and the pain of social hierarchy does not have limitless reach. It reaches high and low and can impact those in its claws in different ways.
This hate-to-love story consumed me. I could not put it down. I fell asleep reading it and woke up reading it. I cried with it, felt my heart drop with it, and hoped with it. If you want a book that you can feel all the way through, then you need this book!
More from Bex:When I decided to become a blogger, knowing absolutely nothing about it, I did so for the sole reason of wanting to have a community of book lovers to talk to and to somehow give back to these authors sharing so much of themselves with us. When I launched the blog in March 2016, This is War, Baby was the first arc I ever got as a blogger. I grabbed it up on a whim on NetGalley. The rest has been an exciting and wild ride! I do not read blurbs and I rarely even read teasers if they're longer than a line or so... just because I love the surprise so much. K Webster was a great early supporter of my blog and got me so much exposure in the beginning. That meant so much to me, not just the show of supporting my blog, but to me individually. I will forever support her work. Her mind and ability to master a plot so effortlessly (in any one of her books) is truly a limitlessly astounding thing to experience!

Heartbreaking. Eye Opening. K. Webster has outdone herself again. Her words come together in this brilliant masterpiece. The Day She Cried is more than an epic love story. The underlying theme of bullying is so relevant today. It isn't just happening with children. Adults can be just as bad, if not worse.
My heart breaks a little more every time I think about Raven and Courtney and Rome. Their story consumed me. It made me realize that you can't dwell on the what ifs. I have no other words because this book speaks volumes for itself.
This 5 Star review is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood Blog.
Enjoy and remember you matter.
