A very compelling read, consistent with current events. Fast paced and well balanced between political and personal stories. Excellent use of time jumps to fill in the plot puzzle pieces. Beautifully designed cover.

Overall, I did like this book. I liked it enough to read another one by this author. What I was a bit disappointed with is that the beginning started out strong but it did not stay that way through most of the rest of the story.

Matty's voice was strong and resonated with me more than Leah's. While, I did appreciate Leah not letting the disappearance of Matty go unsolved; I found her to still hold back some and therefore her voice was more timid than Matty's. Yet, what I really liked was Matty's

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Pump Up Your Book in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

At Shutter Speed by Rebecca Burrell was an interesting book.  I was left wondering how often stuff like this really happens because I have no doubt that our government does do stuff like this but that isn’t what this review is on.  This is the first book I have read by this author and I

Really enjoyed At Shutter Speed. It is a story of war, politics, ethics, and freedom of the press. It really made me think about the refugee crisis and our government response or lack of response. Also how truly dangerous being a reporter is during these conflicts. Made it more real because it was framed in a story. Our world should be less dangerous now, but it isn't. Our world is becoming increasingly more adversarial and it should not be. Thought-provoking. ...more

3.5 to be fair. This was not nearly as gritty as I wanted it to be. It read a bit like an NCIS episode and I realize it's quite a difficult subject but I didn't feel drawn in. I felt like I was watching it rather than actually in the action which to me means the book wasn't immersive enough. I definitely didn't see most of the plot coming but it felt muddled at the end and got very difficult to follow who was on what side and which. I loved the ending. It was heartfelt, real, and realistic in th ...more
