MY THOUGHTS


I'll admit the title is what initially drew me to this book...I'm a sucker for a book that has a character with my name.  This book had me completely, I was unsettled while reading Leah's POV...I kept picturing Mother (her kidnapper) to look like the Mom from the Goonies because she was pure evil just like Mama Fratelli.

Then came the first twist and I was like, okay...that threw me for a loop, but moving on...then came the second one, and I was...not buying it.  Overall, it felt like some elements were being done as a ploy to achieve a gotcha kind of moment and it became too problematic to believe.

I wanted a happy ending for these characters...and I didn't feel like I got it...and that's all I'm going to say about this since it is almost impossible to say how I feel about this book, without giving away spoilers.
