On the Edge of My Seat!!!!
By Lynn Lawler
Beautiful, charming Bailey, appears to be a confident teen – yet she is a bit of a “people-pleaser.” One of the people most important to please is her mother. Bailey’s outward appearance and upbeat personality covers a darker, more introverted mentality. She holds painful true feelings deep inside – locking her heart away.
Early on in the story, something crucial to Bailey is ripped away, leaving her in incredibly stifling – circumstances. Though trapped intently within her private thoughts for what seems to be her whole life – finally, she’s forced to find strength from within and what happens will glue you to the pages of this adventurous story. This character’s rich intensity – gave me literal goose-bumps at times. I really couldn’t put it down.
As the story goes along, Bailey’s attitude shifts. It was refreshing to watch her move thru this transition – becoming a resourceful woman who is fearless about doing the fighting for her survival in a messed up situation. At the same time, she learns about gratitude and how to appreciate the things most people take for granted.
There is a chilling theme within the plot that challenges social boundaries, yet does add to the intrigue and at times, rather disturbing revelations.
Suddenly danger looms, affecting millions and time is running out! Bailey faces complicated decisions which need to be made immediately.
I found myself pausing at the end of each page, anticipating what was going to happen on the next. In fact, the drama builds as the story goes on, so it is important to read the series of three books in order. I will warn you, there is some violence, but it is not domineering.
The author painted Bailey’s thoughts so precisely that I could easily view the world from behind her eyes. I applaud the author for creating such an energetic and independent young woman, as opposed to some of the weaker characters I’ve read in other books. This character encouraged me and gave me hope that I too, one day, may be as fearless as she. If you love strong women, you’re going to love Bailey as much as I do.
I loved this book and am shouting out for you to read it!
