The book reads like the untold side of the breakfast club, that there was one story missing and needed to be told. So here it is. One young girl held hostage to an overbearing parent, a familiar story in literature. But this story becomes so very believable and I understand that is due to the skill of the writer. In the early parts of the story there is a kind of submission to the main character. Her father's controlling nature is so well in control of her and her family this is projected to the reader as a normal thing in this family. As the reader, you get to feel the outrage of it while the main character develops enough strength to fight back. I thought that was very clever, and not to spoil anything, but by the time the main character is strong enough, you will be well sucked into the story.
I suppose the point is that with a great book written by a skilled writer it doesn't really matter if this is your kind of thing or not. Should you give it a chance it will be your thing by the time you are done with it
All the What Ifs is the kind of book that sticks with you. It gets inside your brain and heart and the main character, Ashley, takes up residence there. The first part of this novel was actually really hard for me to get through because it was just too real. For anyone who has ever been in an emotionally abusive/controlling relationship this book is full of triggers. I actually had to take a break after the first chapter (and a few other times)…but each time I took a break, I couldn’t stop thinking about Ashley and her situation, and hoping that she’d find a way out.
Getting out is hard. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, it’s never as easy as “why can’t you just leave?” Angela Lynn does a fantastic job of portraying Ashley’s journey. This is more than a story of overcoming an abusive and controlling father, it is also about first love and first real friendships. In fact, my favorite thing about All the What Ifs is that Ashley is more than what has happened to her –this is HER story. She makes the transition from being passive and going along with her father’s plans for her life to an active creator of her own destiny. Whether one has experienced abuse or not, that is an empowering message.
I can’t recommend All the What Ifs highly enough.
So it is super hard to review because I feel like a piece of my heart is in this book.
I just love it so much.
No matter how many times I read it I still get butterflies.
My heart still breaks a little bit each time.
I still root for Ashley to win.
And even though I knew how it would end I was still sad there wasn't more.
I'm so freaking excited to read what Angela Lynn writes next.
