I received a book for my honest review, no other compensation was received.carefulbooktourbannercareful_FrontCoverFor two decades Tyler Gibbons has been keeping a secret from his family. At the tender age of sixteen, Tyler embarks on a student exchange program. Sent to the Andean city of Ambato, Ecuador, he finds daily adventure as he tries to fit in at school, connect with his host family, and navigate through a world of beaches, volcanoes, and jungles. But tucked deep inside this year are events so profound, so unexpected, they forever shape the man he will become. Now, 25 years later, his mother pulls these soaring tales from her son, exposing, for the first time, the source of a deep unhappiness. While these memories contain the wounds of an unresolved past, they also possess the power to heal his painful present. Thoughtfully crafted and boldly told, Tyler’s journey takes the reader on a wild South American adventure, while illuminating a mother’s unyielding power to heal her child.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the blurb and even from the cover. I really had no idea this book would be so multidimensional and so well crafted. Honestly I'm amazed this book is so incredibly good.

Careful has everything – it's a coming of age story that has adventure, love, loss, and so much more. Every single page of this book was amazing. Tyler was a very likeable character and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Okay now I'm going to talk about the price. I normally wouldn't spend over $7 on an ebook of an author I've never heard of but this book is worth every penny. Careful would be a fantastic movie it is that good.
