Forever Changed by Tiffany King

Goodreads description:

Kassandra Cole has it all—a stable home with great parents, popularity and all the friends she could ever need. She is used to a lifestyle where everything comes easy to her, from good grades to being captain of the cheerleading squad.

Her entire world is shaken to the core when a fatal accident takes her father, causing Kassandra to re-examine the course her life was on. The actions of one individual forever changes her life, leaving her to pick up the pieces of her broken family. Kassandra begins to question everything she once cherished and the people she disappointed along the way.

Maddon Johnson’s life is as different from Kassandra’s as night and day. Abandoned by his mother at a young age, he is left to deal with his abusive, alcoholic father on his own. He has one goal: lay low and get the heck out of dodge as soon as he is legally old enough.

Everything changes when his father’s tragic actions send Maddon crashing into Kassandra’s world. Suddenly, getting away is the last thing he wants as he discovers it is possible to believe in love after all.

Mary's Review:

Just when I thought I could not love Tiffany King more, she goes and writes another outstanding book.

Here is a back story of me: This one hits a little close to home, because I lost my dad about the same age as Kassandra.  My mother went through the same depression as Kassandra.  I did rebel like Kassandra, too.  The only difference was I did not have a sibling to take care of.  

There was some serious tears that I shed while reading the book.  Tiffany King really knows how to tug at the heart strings.  Kassandra's dad is killed in a car accident because of Maddon's father's road rage.  Kassandra and Maddon are night and day: she is a cheerleader and very popular and he is in a band and is not that popular.  However, their worlds are now entwined and Kassandra sees that Maddon is nothing like his father.

The question becomes will they be able to have a relationship?  Considering all that has happen to them it would be extremely hard.  Maddon is nothing like his father, though everyone assumes he is.  Kassandra now has all these new responsibilities and still just be a high school student.

I think Tiffany did an wonderful job on this book and would recommended it to anyone and everyone!


  1. This sounds like a powerful and amazing book. I am sorry to hear about your dad- I can only imagine how difficult that has been to deal with. From your review- this is a must read. I haven't read anything by this author- so I have marked this down. Thanks for sharing.

    1. This is an amazing author! She wrote another powerful book call "Wishing for Someday Soon" & a great series called 'The Saving Angels'. You should really check her out!!
