5 out of 5 stars
Julie is kidnapped from her home at the age of 13. The only witness is her little sister who is too afraid to say anything for a few yours. As the years go by, the family goes on in the only way it can with one part missing. Eight years later, her mother Anna opens the door to find a young woman at her door. Julie is home! She tells the story of being sold as a sex slave, first in their home state of Texas and ending up in Mexico, where she eventually escapes. When Anna finds out that Julie has missed some therapy appointments, she begins to feel a twinge of doubt. That twinge becomes a lot bigger when a private investigator calls her and tells her he doesn’t think that Julie is really Julie. He thinks she is someone named Gretchen. We then learn Gretchen’s story and all the other personas this person has used to survive.
I can’t say too much because I don’t want to give away everything but this is one of those books that I did not want to put down! As you could tell if you saw the bags under my eyes this morning. I thought I knew everything that was happening but I really didn’t. I did figure it out before it was over but that was perfectly fine. It is extremely suspenseful and has got enough twists to make you think. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read more from Amy Gentry.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
