REVIEW⤏ IN AN INSTANT


BY SUZANNE REDFEARN




    SYNOPSIS FROM AUTHORS WEBSITE⇣
    Life is over in an instant for sixteen-year-old Finn Miller when a devastating car accident tumbles her and ten others over the side of a mountain. Suspended between worlds, she watches helplessly as those she loves struggle to survive.
    Impossible choices are made, decisions that leave the survivors tormented with grief and regret. Unable to let go, Finn keeps vigil as they struggle to reclaim their shattered lives. Jack, her father, who seeks vengeance against the one person he can blame other than himself; her best friend, Mo, who bravely searches for the truth as the story of their survival is rewritten; her sister Chloe, who knows Finn lingers and yearns to join her; and her mother, Ann, who saved them all but is haunted by her decisions. Finn needs to move on, but how can she with her family still in pieces?
    Heartrending yet ultimately redemptive, In an Instant is a story about the power of love, the meaning of family, and carrying on…even when it seems impossible.

      MY THOUGHTS⇣


      Wow, this book is amazing...it had me...from the point of the tragic accident...all the way to the end.  This apparently was an Amazon First Read...and if I realized then what I know now...I would have snatched this one up.  As it was, I listened to this through a KU read & listen. 

      When I started this, I think I want to say that I didn't like the narration...but honestly, at about ten percent in, the person narrating was the furthest thought from my mind...because the story had sucked me in.  So, basically, she must have been good because her narration never pulled me out of the story.

      This book is emotional, of that, there is no doubt, but a lot of it is the good kind of emotional.  It's not just heartbreaking, it's also heart-mending.  You should just read it...or listen to it, whichever is your favorite way to consume books...just do it.
