Home No More was a really great read. I was surprised that this was Leddy's first published book. The way it was written I feel like this can't be her first. Leddy has to have some books under her belt that she just never released, because her writing is that of an author who has much experience writing. With that being said, let's get into my review.
Home No More had so many twists and turns. I kept trying to guess the plot, and what was going to happen next, and then BAM, I was hit with another shocking turn. To say Home No More kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, is an understatement.
Kendall is a victim. She doesn't feel like one, but she is. She was kidnapped at the age of 3, and 14 years later she was found, and taken back "home" to her "family". She doesn't feel like a victim because she wasn't physically abused in any way. Her kidnapper loved her, and treated her like a daughter, therefore she felt fine. Kendall didn't see the signs. No going out in public, not going to school, not having any friends. She was trapped, but it was all she knew since she could remember. So it was in a sense what she thought was "normal", and she never had a reason to question anything.
Once Kendall returns home, things get crazy. She's forced to live in a house with people she doesn't know, who claim to be her family. All Kendall wants is to go back to where she came from.
Kendall starts therapy and at first she hates it. But at the same time, she starts learning more and more things, and seeing everything for what it really is.
Then theirs Link. God I love him! He becomes Kendall's first friend. Link is there to pick Kendall up when she's down, and Kendall starts to depend on him emotionally. In time Kendall has a choice to make. Make a new life with her new family, or go back to her old life. It's not an easy decision, and she definitely goes back and forth with her answer.
I really don't want to give any more away, but again I will say Home No More kept me on the edge. I so badly wanted to scream and just tell Kendall to pick what she wanted. But then I would put myself in her position and understand the hardships of it all.
Leddy has a way with words. I was hooked and found it very hard to put the book down. I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. And when I tell you, you will get a shock of a lifetime in this story, its true!
Home No More is the perfect story about finding ones true self. Finding out who you are, compared to who you were. Wanting better for yourself, and going through the process of becoming a better person to yourself and others. It truly was a beautiful story. The only thing I would've liked to see was the characters grow in age. Rather than them staying 17/18. I would have loved for them to be in their 20s, but that doesn't take away from the story. Home No More was beautiful, and a very realistic story.
Leddy, you did an amazing job with Home No More. I can't wait for more of your books! You have a forever fan in me!
The story feels so therapeutic.
Kendall's life has been a lie. Billy is a smart guy who wants Kendall to learn the truth and to take the time to find herself before choosing to come back to him.
Trying to figure out why Kendall is so blasé about life. Once Kendall is away from the sheltered life she lived she gains new perspective on how she lived her life. For the first time she is questioning her life choices as something that might not be considered acceptable behavior or normal behavior. Here lies the question does Kendall care to fit into what society considers to be acceptable behavior or is what she craves acceptable enough for her? Another question is what is love and when you do know you are in love? This story dealt with many different types of love.
The grey area in life that I come to appreciate. Life is not as black and white as we make it out to be. One persons wrong and another persons wrong does not equate to another wrong. It works but does not fit into the laws of what's considered right from wrong. A conundrum.
Nothing is what it seems. You think you understand a person then realize you really do not. You have to look at everything in life from so many different perspectives to gain clarity on a situation. It becomes vague.
I like that this story reads like it was not made up. The details are fantastic. It's cleverly written.
Kendall's isolation of her life has made her ignorant to the outside world. I like that Kendall talks to a therapist who helps her open her eyes to other possibilities in life. I like Link who for as young as he is acts so mature when faced with Kendall's drama. I like that Link made Danielle feel whole and helped her find home.
Kendall is the strong minded, sassy young girl that lives with a man she thinks of as a father figure, John. He has raised her since she was a small girl and loves her as his own. John has a son named Billy that was in and out of the picture as she grew up.
Kendall was a great character and what I loved about her is that she never took any slack from anyone.
Danielle is a weak yet sassy young woman trying to find her place in the world. Losing all she had twice has truly left her grasping at the wrong straws.
I enjoyed Danielles character but OMG if she fell to the ground in a pile of emotions one more time I would leave her there. Just saying. That being said she was so lost in what is right and wrong for her. Living such different worlds had to be so hard. To us it was plain and simple but to be there is totally different.
Kendall is Danielle are you ready for this crazy story?
Leddy did a great job with this book. I had NO idea where it was going and OMG was it a crazy ride. Four and a half heartbreaking beautiful stars have been granted :)
life but was unaware until a routine traffic stop force her into
a life that she belonged to but didn't know she had, It is very
well written. It has sexual scenes in it so it is definitely for eighteen
