Five of Five stars

I really loved this book. Five stars for being such a gripping ride that had me racing through the story as fast as I could.

It is alternately told by a mother, a father, a son and a daughter. A hit and run occurs on the first page, and we are then taken on a journey with a family that was already about to fall to pieces from the normal growing pains that hit all families. Along the way there are mysteries, secrets, and affairs. Friendships, relationships, extended family, coming of age… there is a lot going on with each character in this book. I was drawn in by a wife and mother’s broken heart, a husband and father’s search for a connection, a daughter struggling with almost-adulthood, and a son who is scrambling to keep the pieces together.

After all the many mysteries are resolved (in an exciting, thrilling, lightning-paced read) there is still a family left in the middle. The biggest mystery is whether these events will tear them all apart forever, or bring them closer together. The end is tied up nicely, not with a nice pink bow, but with a realistic family whose core has been ripped apart, but whose foundation was built on love.

Thank you to NetGalley for the early copy in exchange for an honest review. This is a five star family-driven thriller.
