I never thought it would end like this.
I never thought it would end at all.
But not all stories get a happy ending.
When Lennon Donnelly moves back to the quiet town of Puruwai, she never dreams that a chance meeting with a boy sitting at the cemetery will change her life. Her best friend warns her about Judah Mitchell. There are rumours that he killed his brother. But as Lennon is drawn deeper into the mysterious boy’s life, the events of his past unravel until she finds herself driving over the edge of a cliff and into the depths of the lake below.
Spanning over two years and starting at the end, this compelling novel tells of the intertwining relationships of Lennon, Ruben, Judah, and Cara. Told from the different perspectives of before and after, the story unfolds like a puzzle and reveals secrets that will haunt you long after you turn the final page.
This book is told in the first person spanning two different time periods. The first perspective is that of Lennon who is drawn into a puzzle that has spanned a year. The other perspectives are those of Judah and Ruben from one year ago when a horrific accident changed the course of their lives forever.
Through the backstory of the boys characters and the unfolding of Lennons storyline the characters become more fleshed out and inner demons came to light.
Honesty: The consequences of lying and dishonesty are examined within this novel. The consequences being catastrophic.
The Bonds That Link People: The strenuous bonds that link individuals and the breaking of these bonds are an element within the book. A horrible incident tears apart bonds that appear unbreakable.
This book was full of twists that I was not expecting and had me hooked. I went into this book relatively blind and was pleasantly surprised by the direction the story took.
I still haven’t quite accepted the ending and it is still on my mind. It has left me mind-blown.
