The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-striken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother's former nurse, the little half-brother isn't allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there's Merit. Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn't earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her - until she discovers that he's completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix. Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she's never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

This is my second Colleen Hoover book and it won't be my last. The conflict in Without Merit kept me fully engaged and interested in the main character, so much so that I was able to finish it in less than 12 hours. And I'll just be up front and disclose that when I end up snapping pictures of different passages within a book, it will usually receive a minimum of 3 stars from me. Overall, I'm looking forward to reading more books by Colleen Hoover.

This book was absolutely incredible - Colleen Hoover once again made me laugh, cry and want to read it all over again. The story captivated me for the entire 2 days it took me to read!
