Oh, this book has my heart. What a compelling, emotional journey I just returned from.
Lexie receives a call at 2:00 am that nobody is prepared to hear. Her sister, Annie, who she hasn’t spoken to in years, is in trouble. Lexie rushes to her aid and finds her living in a dirty trailer, addicted to drugs, and pregnant. Having always rescued Annie in times of trouble, Lexie makes it s point to make sure Annie gets help again. But with the law working against her, it isn’t as easy this time.
I loved how addiction, while a main focus, wasn’t the only issue brought up in this novel. Rimmer also confronts abuse, religious sects, death, legal battles, learning to be an adult before you’re ready, and the struggles of balancing it all. There are so many subjects to foster a great book discussion here, so if your book club is looking for new fiction, this would be a perfect choice.
If you’re a fan of heartbreaking, yet heartwarming fiction and enjoyed books such as Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, Still Alice by Lisa Genova, and Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, this is one you’ll definitely want to get your hands on. And I guarantee it will quickly become a favorite
Be prepared to shed some tears. For me, the cry was a cleansing, and I felt better after having finished it. Hug your sisters and your brothers and your mothers and your fathers and your children a little tighter today. And then tell them they need to read this book.
I received an advanced copy from Little Bird Publicity and the publisher.
