We follow along on Jade’s journey of being reintroduced to society after ten years of being locked away in a house—the media circus, the questions, the uncomfortable setting of her family trying to readjust. It was an incredible and hopeless experience to read through.
Jade was an interesting character. She wanted to be strong, tried to be strong, wanting to put the past ten years of her captivity behind her, but the littlest things would set her off—too bright lights, a handshake. Only one person could see what set her off and only one person knew how to make things better.
Torrin was the boy who wouldn’t let go when everyone else gave up hope. When he went to see her in the hospital after her rescue, I literally LMFAO at the surprise awaiting her. I had to put the book down and just laugh and laugh because I was NOT expecting THAT! But, it makes sense if you pay attention to the clues in the first chapter…and the title.
The ending was beautiful and real. I know a lot of people were disappointed at the ending, but sometimes things aren’t meant to be so easy. I liked that a lot about the ending. It wasn’t just an ending, but a beginning, where we can let our own imaginations picture the outcome. It just made sense to me.
The only thing I didn’t like about the writing was the passive voice (my hand rested on his shoulder). No! You rested your hand on his shoulder. Your hand does not have its own mind. This is just one of my quirks. Other than that, the writing kept you enamored.
Most of this story is about her learning to stop being afraid and learning how to heal her broken edges. She sacrifices for him when the media turns its attention onto Terrin's life and their relationship.
I can't imagine what survivors of kidnapping go through when released but I can guess its a psychological damaging time. This writer has captured some events and clearly brought them to light. Its possible to feel the anguish of the main characters even the sister who was neglected when everyone else was searching for Jade and suffering with her loss. The pain is palpable.... Its so clear you can touch it. Great job with a frightening topic.
