I read this book in a day. Three weeks later, I'm still thinking about this family—how each one found different ways of coping with the kidnapping and everything that came from that. The choices they made, the before and after. Human beings can endure a lot, but this...it's a parent's worst nightmare. Yet through the journey, readers will find hope. It's a lifeline we all need.
Beautifully written, I still have images of the cage, the house, the school, and "home" in my head. Scenes will stay with you and there are moments that will make you gasp and may even bring you to tears. Have some tissues ready, just in case, but whatever you do, don't miss AFTERMATH! It's a must-read.
This book changed the way I will approach books going forward because I needed this experience to make me want to dwell a little bit deeper into some of the headlines we so often shrug off. This book was hard to read but I could not pull away from it. It is told from the perspective of one of the victims of a kidnapping and how she put her life back together. It made me think a little deeper about how lives are affected not just for that moment but maybe forever when something happens. I found myself with wet eyes more then once when putting the book away but in the end there was enough love and commitment to put this life back on track. I think every girl, mom, aunt, sister, cousin, dad, uncle, brother should read this book. Even 62 year old men with grown kids and no grand children should read this book because there is a story in there that will touch anyone who reads it and make you look at things a little deeper. Great Job Klara!
First I love Charlotte as a character. The author did an amazing job creating a teenager who has been abducted and found. I felt like the emotions that Charlotte was going through were very well represented by the author. I loved how the author would describe what Charlotte was doing as well as thinking because sometimes you want to put on a front to move forward. Also, I liked how the author handled all the gruesome acts that must have happened to Charlotte, we get to see bits and pieces of what happened to her and it is not overwhelming to read. Charlotte is a very strong character even if she doesn't always see it, the author did a great job showing the strength that Charlotte possess.
I could not believe the twist towards the very end of the book. I did not see that coming at all and it tore out my heart and stomped all over it. I felt so connected with Charlotte at that moment in the book I wasn't sure how she was going to go on with her life. It felt like the entire book was building up to a large event and the book did not disappoint.
The side characters in the book where perfect. I enjoyed reading about Charlotte's twin sister as well as her parents. They each suffered in different ways when Charlotte disappeared and handled the situation differently. The author did a great job showing how each coped with what happened and how guilty they each felt. I loved by the end of the book we get to see 180 degrees in all of these relationships.
Things I didn't love in the book was I felt like the author could have expanded more upon Charlotte's recovery. I felt like the author picked a few major issues to talk about, which probably kept the book shorter, but I felt like she was going through so many emotions I would have love to read more about what was going on Charlotte's brain and how someone can recover from such a trauma.
I would suggest this as a weekend read or a vacation read. I found this book hard to put down. I wanted to know what was going to happen in the end and if Charlotte would be able to succeed in life. This story was so gripping I couldn't put it down. It is a book that you need time to digest and think through.
I received a copy of this book from the Fantastic Flying Book Club for the purpose of providing an honest review. This does not effect my opinion of this book.
