This is a book that everyone should read. Part of me wanted to say that every girl should read it, every Christian should read it, every college student should read it, every parent should read it… but the truth is that there is a lesson for everyone in this book and its tragic, painful, and raw with emotion.
What If I Go? Is a roller coaster coming-of-age novel about a young woman named Grace. Kind, innocent Grace only wants to pursue her education and her dreams in the UK—but she wouldn’t mind finding love along the way. Fortunately for her, she does find it in a seductive young man named Zul. Unfortunately … Zul is the last person she should surrender her heart to.
In this painfully honest story, audiences watch Grace’s life spiral out of control as she makes one bad decision after another. Innocence is tainted, light becomes darkness, trust is betrayed, and hope destroyed as our protagonist fights a string of battles and loses—repeatedly. Sex, drugs, alcohol, and abuse are just a few of the problems Grace finds herself tangled up in. The sad part of this story is that things never really get better for Grace. She is a completely lost cause and we are forced to sit and watch and hope that she can somehow make it out of her circumstances. Even more painful… this is not an uncommon tale.
The very depressing truth is that Grace is not a special case. How many young adults venture off expecting to find love and success and are instead handed a plate of worms? I believe there is a little bit of Grace in all of us—a gentle light hoping for more, trusting a little too much, believing in every smile we see. Sometimes we allow ourselves to get hurt by being too nice. I’m not sure if that makes us or the world sad but it’s the truth.
My heart goes out to our protagonist and especially to our wonderful author for bringing this story to light in its painful, raw truth. This book was written incredibly well with a gifted hand. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to read and review it.
I would recommend this book to mature readers and those who enjoy coming-of-age tales.
There is a clear warning for young girls who travel abroad alone, not to trust just anybody without checking them out thoroughly. There are vultures everywhere, waiting to pounce on the innocent and destroy them, but they do it in a subtle way. The girls are reeled in slowly and by the time they realize what is happening, it is too late. They're hooked.
Not all the girls that get trapped, are strong enough to walk away. Grace found a gap and ran. The heeling process was long and slow and almost as painful as the torture itself. That is the physical part. The psychological healing to longer and was no easier. To learn to trust in the right people was not easy and making another mistake almost happened.
Polly White leaves us with the hope that there is always a way out and that turning back to the Lord God, trusting Him and leaving everything in His capable hands, is the way to total restoration. What If I Go is a story that has a distinct warning and a message of joy awaiting on the other side of trouble.
Wonderfully written from the point of view of a down trodden teenager, who – really – never gives up on a better life, even after her best friend turns her back on her, and her one and only love shatters her, body and soul. This story is not for the faint hearted, but for lovers of fiction that is so close to real life that you know this betrayal of innocence and trust really is happening, right now.
Polly J White has captured the angst of youth, along with the ruin of young virtue, and the total annihilation of faith perfectly. Be prepared for an emotional read, and to live a life of child exploitation through the eyes of an author who you would swear had lived through it.
What If I Go is a very real read which I enjoyed immensely.
