“What is a life worth to you?”
Cole Torsney is a 17 year old boy who has had a recurring nightmare of being held capitve with a girl named Grace. His dad and his therapist have told him that it wasn’t real. He can’t seem to comes to terms with that – his memories are vivid.
He embarks on an investigation as to whether or not the nightmare is real. He quickly begins to have more questions than he does answers. If he was held captive, who did it, and why? How did he escape? Why did Grace die and not him? His nightmares began when his mother committed suicide, but why did she commit suicide? And after all that, the memory of being held captive and his mother committing suicide, why did his dad take him and flee away from the town where they had lived? Cole is determined to find out everything, but at what cost?
This is a brilliant debut novel by this 18 year old author. The plot of the book was refreshing and enjoyable. With so many secrets to reveal, twists and turns, and jaw dropping moments, it was hard to put down! In fact, you won’t put it down because you’ll want to know what is coming next.
One of the things that I loved about this novel is that I was immersed in the story. It really felt like at times, the book was speaking to me, the reader. It kept me very engaged.
For this author to be so young and write such a thrilling book, is amazing. I cannot wait to see what he comes out with next. I just hope he keeps writing these psychological thriller books.
