An intense page-turner!,
This review is from: Still Missing (Hardcover)
This story is recounted through Annie's therapy sessions. So as the reader, we know from the start that Annie survives, but this doesn't make this book any less suspenseful. Actually, I'm not sure if my rapid beating heart could have taken it if we hadn't known if she survives. Chevy Stevens gets so deep into the psychological trauma and turmoil that it was hard not to think that this wasn't based on a true story. It took me a while to warm up to Annie because her voice is so harsh and bitter. But as you get further into her imprisonment and the brain washing that happened to her, you start to understand why Annie is the way she is now and just how powerful PTSD can be. Even though she isn't necessarily likeable, it didn't make me any less invested in the book.
