As I was reading this book, it reminded me of a friend that I had many many years ago. My friend, who I will call Barbie, had drug problems. I tried so many times to help her to get off the drugs she was using, but to no avail. I did not learn until later on that she had to be the one that wanted to quit and no matter what I did, until she was ready to stop, she wouldn’t. Barbie ended up walking to the top of her apartment building and walking off the top to the concrete below where I stood playing.
Every one of us has something that they fear and it never seems to leave us. We sometimes push things so very deep into our minds that we do not remember or want to remember any of it until something traumatic happens and it may trigger that memory.
I loved all the descriptive words that the author uses in this story, he keeps the story line moving at a good pace and has you wanting to know what happens next.
