I picked this eBook up on a whim and immediately found myself intrigued. It started out as a well-written and engaging, but fairly typical abduction story. But Isla Morley quickly twists the narrative into something much more complex, darker, and richer than anything I was anticipating. The book was so intriguing I was having a hard time articulating my feelings. Because this book gave me so many feels, guys. So many. But, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
So here is my reaction to the book...in gifs.
As you can see this book took me through the roller coaster of emotions. A fascinating read and look at humanity, home, belonging, and hope.
