My last read was so good I struggled this weekend to connect to a new book. I abandoned two in my struggle. I picked this book up and wasn’t blown away initially, but kept going. Boy am I glad I did. This was a total mind blowing read. Very unexpected and totally enjoyable.
We start out with a five year old boy killed in a hit and run. We feel we are reading the struggle of the aftermath of this death. Yes, this will be a finding oneself story, rebirth, etc. Suddenly, half way in I realize Ms Mackintosh has just blown my mind. Totally unexpected twists and now I feel I’m reading an entirely different book. And, this shift got my full attention and buy in to her book.
I predict NY Times best seller list for this one. Perhaps a movie deal as well as it would make a great one. Move ove Gone Girl, there’s a new kid in town. Make room on your calendar as you will not be able to stop until you finish. I can’t say too much about the plot as I don’t want to spoil one minute for you all. Trust me on this one!
