Contemporary/War

All her life the Marine Corps defined Justice. She lived by the honor and knew nothing else. She didn’t want to know anything else. Dedicated is who Justice was, but redefining herself after a life altering injury will prove to be her greatest victory or her toughest defeat. Finding herself once again would be the beginning.
Will she reconnect with the solider she once was or will the forces of loneliness and depression, pain and anger take over? Can the help of someone so unexpected help Justice on her journey or will she just be lost forever?

Uncaged Review: Justice is a marines solider home from leave at Christmas time. She is looking forward to getting out for good. As she believes her four year tour is up two weeks. She wants to start her own business and maybe start a family. Spend some time with her boyfriend Miles. Right now she’s happy to be at home for Christmas until her dad says a letter came for her from the Department of Defense. Saying they want her back on another tour Justice and her dad try to find away to stop this but it’s not to be. This is Jessica’s story of life on the road as a solider full of ups and downs and a dear Jane letter. Will she make it back in one piece.
This books really opened my eyes to what it’s like firstly to be a women on the road and secondly as a marine. This isn’t a task of the faint hearted or weak. To the people who do that every day standing applause. I highly recommended this book as a mere glimpse into a soldier’s life. I couldn’t put this book down. Reviewed by Jennifer
