4.0 out of 5 stars Not an easy read, but it was not an easy life either, November 19, 2012

This review is from: The Unchosen Twins (Kindle Edition)
The Unchosen twins by Zan Henke

This was one of the hardest books I have read this year. I actually truly hated it. But bear with me, I hated it, because I could not understand the author and her way of handling a situation in which I have never found myself.
I hated it because this type of abuse seems to be rampant and as a society I wish we would grow up and step up to the plate.
I hated it, because her reaction to and her perceptions were not what I would have done or perceived, were I in a situation as horrid as this. So.... let's recap. I hated the book because on every page it brought me to a world removed from my own. Every perception, every impression was novel to me and so far removed from my own reality it was unreal.
That said.... The book is not written by a published author with a team of Beta readers and editors at her disposal, much is written in first person singular which made it harder to read but also served to drive the horrible reality closer home.
At the very end of the book the author says she has been ridiculed by her sisters for writing this account--she goes further stating that she as one of four girls had said experience, this I can relate to. As the youngest of 5 children I often think of how the same circumstances managed to ship us so very differently. Would I recommend this book? Yes and no. If abuse is something you suffered and will be upset easily then most assuredly no. Don't read this. If you can handle it, and I am unsure if I could even though we have so little in common, then yes, read it, you will learn and grow as a person.
I give it a 4 * review rating.
