A broken-down camper hidden deep in a national forest is the only home fifteen year-old Carey can remember. The trees keep guard over her threadbare existence, with the one bright spot being Carey’s younger sister, Jenessa, who depends on Carey for her very survival. All they have is each other, as their mentally ill mother comes and goes with greater frequency. Until that one fateful day their mother disappears for good, and two strangers arrive. Suddenly, the girls are taken from the woods and thrust into a bright and perplexing new world of high school, clothes and boys.
Now, Carey must face the truth of why her mother abducted her ten years ago, while haunted by a past that won’t let her go… a dark past that hides many a secret, including the reason Jenessa hasn’t spoken a word in over a year. Carey knows she must keep her sister close, and her secrets even closer, or risk watching her new life come crashing down.
Hello again everyone! First of all, happy first week of September. We are now entering my favorite time of the year. Fall is my favorite season followed by Winter. I don’t do the heat very well so I am thrilled to be leaving it behind me.
Well, let’s get to it then. This weekly meme is brought to you by Tynga’s Reviews. Don’t forget to stop by there and link up your book haul posts. Remember they can be e-books,physical books,books you got as gifts or that you won. Of course they also include books that you bought or received for review.
This week was an unusual week for me. I mega splurged and bought 7 hard copy books. All books I had been dying to read for months but was unable to afford due to grown up things. Like bills. I placed the order on August 24th and received on September 3rd. I have already gobbled up 3 of the seven books and they have all been amazing. Reviews will be posted this coming week.
I also received 2 Netgalley books. One of which I have already finished. The review is scheduled for next month as the release date is not until November. I received a hard copy of a book for review as well. I am really looking forward to reading it as I am not familiar with the Jewish culture & religion. Normally I stay away from religious books but I am trying to expand my horizons just a little bit.
I did end up winning a book (actually I must have won it awhile ago) from Epic Reads. I am SO excited that I won this book and I cannot wait to dive into it.
So here are my bookish goodies that I received. As always please let me know if you’ve read these and what you though of them.
