My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It is impossible to suffer without making someone pay for it; every complaint already contains revenge.
Fourteen-year-old Erin found herself in a very peculiar situation. Typical teen looking for parents attention gets involved with a sketchy crowd. As a result, Erin develops a drinking habit, and the biggest surprise of all – falls pregnant. Underaged teen is unable to keep the child, and without her parents’ moral and financial support is forced to place her daughter for adoption.
Twenty-six years later, Erin receives a birthday card, signed “the girl you gave away“. From that moment forward – her life is flipped upside down and very quickly fills with lies, betrayals, blackmail, and revenge.
“The Girl You Gave Away” is full of twists that make the reader glued to the pages, absorbing narrators, and entertaining and mysterious characters. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for an advanced and free copy of the novel, and Jess Ryder for another phenomenal thriller.
