Tortured was an emotion packed book about loss, grief and healing. We had some idea of what Josh went through in the time before he met Willow, but only the painful glimpses he allowed to break free. Imprisoned fills in those gaps perfectly. Not only do you get to feel the pain more thoroughly but you understand more of what is going on in his head. There is pain, regret, anger and confusion swirling around until all that's left is a shell of what used to be. I just felt more connected with him ...more

Waking up to the news that your bestfriend is dead because of you is definitely painful and guilt-eating. Josh is having a hard time dealing with it and could never move on. This short novella details the heartbreaking pain & suffering Josh had to endure while imprisoned by guilt, memories & death.

This is such an emotional read. Kate Givans effectively described the feeling of having survivor's guilt. Can't wait to read more!!
Poor Josh!! No wonder he is suffering with so much anxiety and depression following the death of his friend Brad. It is heart breaking. This book gives you a more in depth look at what Josh is thinking and feeling in the days following his accident before he met Willow. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next. 3.5 Stars

New to me author

Let me start by saying this is a very short book but it packs a very powerful and emotional punch.
Drinking and driving does not mix and when you lose your best friend well hell in itself begins to wreck havoc on your very soul.

Josh learns a very hard lesson in life the hard way. When he awakens in the hospital its obvious by the
