Wash Me Away by Wendy Owens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a very powerful story
There is nothing that grabs your interest more than a taboo subject if we are honest.
Just think of those headlines in the newspaper.
Think of those words on a magazine that captures your eye when browsing on the magazine rack.
Yes, it JUMPS out at you, it gets your attention right away.
This is like this story of this young girl and her life, her tragedies, her hopes, dreams, all dashed.
Its a subject matter we all want to avoid, its horrible. It also evokes high emotions in opinions.
Suicide is selfish
Its the easy way out
Snap out of it!
Pull your socks up, face life and get on with it
This author has done brilliantly with this subject matter. An awful lot to think about.
There is not all doom and gloom here though, yes she is damaged.
We see her grow, we see her get stronger, we see her recovery. We see her manage, we see her cope. We see her come to terms with life.
When Addie finds letters from her Mother, that made me burst out crying. When an author can write a heart melting book such as this, its awesome.
I am so glad that sometimes I choose to read one of the books on a blog tour.
