The last day of every month I will select a book that I favored above all the others.
Ah! I almost forgot my first BoTM! Silly me, how has this month flown by so quickly already? Alright, without further ado, here is the BoTM!
I selected this book because it had me hooked from the first page. What an emotional rollercoaster ride, it was so good and so heartbreaking to read at the same time. This Young Adult/Contemporary shattered me, made me cry and made me realize how easy abductions can occur. Not only that but the effects it can and does have on the family.
What set it apart from the others was the ability to draw me in emotionally, it was raw and it displayed the devastation of all involved in a well-done manner.
Summary: Charlotte survived four long years as a prisoner in the attic of her kidnapper, sustained only by dreams of her loving family. The chance to escape suddenly arrives, and Charlotte fights her way to freedom. But an answered prayer turns into heartbreak. Losing her has torn her family apart. Her parents have divorced: Dad’s a glutton for fame, Mom drinks too much, and Charlotte’s twin is a zoned-out druggie. Her father wants Charlotte write a book and go on a lecture tour, and her mom wants to keep her safe, a virtual prisoner in her own home. But Charlotte is obsessed with the other girl who was kidnapped, who never got a second chance at life–the girl who nobody but Charlotte believes really existed. Until she can get justice for that girl, even if she has to do it on her own, whatever the danger, Charlotte will never be free.
