NetGalley- thanks to Faber & Faber
When George first met her, she was an eighteen-year-old college freshman from Sweetgum, Florida. She and George became inseparable in their first fall semester, so George was devastated when he got the news that she had committed suicide over Christmas break. But, as he stood in the living room of the girl’s grieving parents, he realized the girl in the photo on their mantelpiece – the one who had committed suicide – was not his girlfriend. Later, he discovered the true identity of the girl he had loved – and of the things she may have done to escape her past.
Now, twenty years later, she’s back, and she’s telling George that he’s the only one who can help her . . .
This book didn’t take long to read at all. It hooked me quite early on and had me turning the pages (well, pressing the button on my Kindle 😉 ) quickly to find out what was going to happen!
I don’t want to say too much about the book as I don’t want to spoil it. It’s fast-paced and the action just keeps on happening!
The main character George isn’t your typical male lead. He actually comes across as very weak and makes some very silly decisions based on his feelings for the female lead Jane (or whatever name she’s going by..). I thought Jane was an interesting character and she certainly holds the story together.
The reason why I haven’t given this book four stars, is because I was let down by the ending. I don’t know if this is going to be a series, but the ending was left incredibly open. I like some sort of closure and this book didn’t have it. The writing and the story are good though, so it doesn’t put me off from reading the author’s next work.
Would I recommend it?:
