This book by Callum was a nice surprise to read.
I am normally more into fantasy novels or poetry, but the story captured me from the very beginning.
The story follows teenager Abi Watson, who wakes in a hospital bed with no memory of the incident that put her there. She must strive to uncover the truth from the depths of her own mind while dealing with the various complex relationships with the people around her.
There are a couple of things in particular that attracts me to this book.
First of all, I love the writing style. It reads easy and swiftly. When you start to read, the story grabs you almost immediately and keeps you in its grasp for the remaining of the book.
It has a great tension in it and sparks your curiosity throughout the chapters.
The second thing I really like is that this book contains a subject very close to my heart: PTSD. I admire a story that holds issues that are normally kept hidden. This way, people can learn a bit while enjoying an awesome story at the same time.
As for the story itself, it’s exiting, filled with questions and has depth as well.
Although I did foresee the ending, it didn’t bother me at all because it left me with a sense of: ‘See? I was right!’. Very satisfying when that happens. 😉
So, if you like a good, intriguing story with tension that makes you want to read faster because you want to know what happens next, I can recommend this book for sure!
Thank you Callum, for a great read!
Lots of Love,
