In Leah's Wake is beautifully written, haunting, fascinating, and a book that has a lot to say, a lot to teach you, without getting preachy.

***I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.

I enjoyed this story for the most part. Leah went through a series of bad decisions that put her in a spot her pride couldn't back track on. The characters were well developed and it was easy to understand the things they did for the family.

I only gave it 3 stars because I felt like at times the story wandered away from the main plot and some of the story lines were too long and unnecessary. Overall, though, I enjoyed it.

I downloaded this book for my kindle mainly because the price was so cheap, and Im glad that I did! I finished the book in about 4 days. once I picked it up, I couldnt put it down! Terri does an awesome job using foreshadowing in all the right places.. and writes an ending that you will never ee coming! I highly recommend this to anyone, but I advise any strict parent to consider purchasing this as a gift for anyone under the age of about 16, as there is qite a bit of suggestive material throughout. But over all, this is a FANTASTIC book!

It's hard to believe this book was the author's debut novel. The characters and storyline kept you riveted to the book and you didn't want to put it down. Very true to life story that anyone who is raising or raised teenagers could definitely relate to and see themselves, as parents, in almost the same type of situations. I enjoyed reading about the family dynamics and how each individual's actions affect everyone in the family. Very good read! Great job Terri!

Format: Paperback
Holding my daughters for the first time, watching them absorb the world around them, smelling their sweet breath, I pictured a fairytale future. My vision of them held details of first steps, first boyfriends, college, marriage and eventually grandchildren. A lifetime of accomplishments mixed in with minor disappointments, disappointments that would only strengthen them to be the amazing women I know they will be. I pictured sharing this joy with my best friend and partner, my husband.

I didn't picture rampant sexual teens, drugs, drop-out coke dealing boyfriends, drunken parties or searching relentlessly for my runaway daughter. Thoughts of them failing school, insulting their team mates by quitting, or squandering a chance at college scholarships never crossed my mind. It was an impossible possibility that my older daughter could influence her younger sister to follow down a dark, dangerous road with her, causing a 12-year-old mental breakdown. My marriage could never be stripped down by the stress of raising an emotionally drowning teenager, worn thread bare, exposing gaping holes where adultery could seep in and communication lost. That could never happen to my family. Could it?

That's what Zoe and Will Tyler must have thought too, as they watched their two beautiful daughters, 12-year-old Justine and 16-year-old Leah, grow up in Terri Giuliano Long's debut novel In Leah's Wake.

"They had no idea, he and Zoe, how easy they'd had it when the girls were young."

In Leah's Wake is a dramatic contemporary novel about the average suburban family. Will and Zoe Tyler are both hard working parents trying to provide the perfect life for their children: a nice house, good schools, sports and academic enrichment.

Wow, this book really kept me from sleeping! Once started I had to know the end!
A big compliment to the author! I guess it must be a gift to be able to `create' a book of this caliber.
Being a parent myself with, I guess I may compare myself with Zoe and Will. Do they make mistakes!! Page after page it became more obvious they don't leave Leah a chance but to run away! The grenade in her was planted long ago, it just needed a Todd or Hope to pull the pin out! How good of the author to show that even a mother whose profession it is to train other parents how to get on the right track, can make such mistakes in her private live. The frustration (especially from Will) of not living the live they wanted, is mirrored onto the kids.
I can fully recommend this book, and I hope Terri Giuliano-Long is inspired to write another book.

Leah's teenage rebellion affects everyone in her life. Will Tyler is a hard-working, middle-class jock who pins his Harvard dreams on his teenage soccer-star daughter, Leah. Wife Zoe has it all together, a therapist, wife and mom who coaches people on how to live their lives. Leah is a rebellious sixteen-year-old who is more interested in finding herself than pleasing her parents. Younger sister, Justine, is the good child who idolizes her sister and plays mediator between Leah and her parents. Todd, Leah's delinquent boyfriend, really loves her but inevitably guides her in the wrong direction. As Leah's rebellion progresses, her world changes and she loses everything that is dear to her. Leah's decisions tear her family apart and cause a myriad of events.
This story is full of characters that the reader loves and hates at the same time. Leah is strong yet weak. Her parents have it all together but can't keep it together. Justine is smart but vulnerable. And Todd is a loser yet charming. In Leah's Wake is a wonderful, free-flowing read that captivates the reader to the very end.
