What I Thought About This Novel
I thought this novel was well written. It tells a story of grieve and loss and how to cope with it. The characters in this novel are believable.
I can relate to the story in this novel because I also lost my father when I was sixteen to cardiac arrest. I was the first one to see him in his bed with no sign of life in him. I was the one to call for help.
I can feel and share the feelings that Tamara went through, the sudden crying, the loneliness, the must have, the could have all but in memory.
I like the way the author shows how people grieve in different ways.
The way Tamara and her mother cope with loss was different, this also applies in real life.
This book is sad, exciting , fun and has a lot of suspense which makes it a great page turner.
I recommend this book to adults and older teenager as it would suit both.
