You can run, you can hide, but can you disappear for good?
Lauren's daughter Zara witnessed a terrible crime. But speaking up comes with a price, and when Zara's identity is revealed online, it puts a target on her back.
The only choice is to disappear.
From their family, their friends, even from Lauren's husband.
No goodbyes. Just new names, new home, new lives.
One mistake - a text, an Instagram like - could bring their old lives crashing into the new.
As Lauren will learn, disappearing is easy.
Staying hidden is much harder . . .
What can I say about this book I mean it blew me away!
I have a read previous book by this author but this book just blows everything out of the park!
It has taken me a while to find the words for this book and it just broke me at the end.
I mean the story of a mum and daughter having to go into witness protection and leave everyone and everything behind, well I couldn’t fathom it. I even spoke to Mini-Me about it, I mean as long as we had each other we would be ok, but it doesn’t bear thinking about it!! I just couldn’t go through the fear, the doubt and the unsettling lives they had to live. Just the smallest thing could let people know, the wrong people, where they were.
Although, Zara was a right madam in the middle and I would have given her a slap. The way she treated her mother after everything riled me! I understand she was struggling but I guess as a teenager you can’t see past your own life. She couldn’t even see how Lauren, her mum was struggling and that broke my heart.
This book will stay with me for a long time, you know, well you wouldn’t know, that this does happen. People do end up in witness protection but do you ever really know who they are!
The narrator of the book was spot on, she brought everything to life. She amplified the terror in Aiden’s characters and the sorrow and loneliness in Lauren and Zara’s.
Even though the author has said she doesn’t have all the facts about witness protection, for obvious reasons, I felt like she was spot on with them! I believed her words, I have no reason to doubt her…..and that’s why it’s terrifying!!!
I was so hooked on this book, I started to plan my day around listening to it. Checking how much time I had left and how I could squeeze in in a day. Thank god for working at home at the moment!!
I really can’t do this book the justice it deserves but it is a book you should definitely read….like now!
Until the next time xxx
