Saving Phoebe Murrow
BY: Herta Feely
Reviewed By: Long Island Dreams Book Reviews
Stars 4 out of 5

This cutting edge novel delivers an insightful view of a serious epidemic that plagues our youth on a daily basis.
Phoebe Murrow is a thirteen years old girl who is already dealing with an overbearing mother, so when she is bullied at school her world turns upside down.
Feeling unloved and unwanted by her family and friends, Phoebe turns to a “boy” she met on Facebook for comfort.
Phoebe believes she is totally and completely in love with Shane. He is sophisticated, handsome and smart. What girl wouldn’t be in love with him? Since Shane attends a different school and the two have never met Pheobe’s mom (Isabel) has questions about Shane. Just exactly who is this boy?
Things go bad when Isabel calls the police after her daughter attends her Bff’s party and the parents allow the teens to have alcohol. The aftermath of the events of that party places Pheobe’s life in peril.
Will Phoebe survive? Will she find her way back to her family and begin the healing journey?
Saving Phoebe Murrow is a four star page turning hit. The characters literally jumped off the page for me. Truthfully, Isabel was such an overbearing mother, I almost wanted to scream at her; “I know you love your child, but back of a little, your smothering her”.
What can’t I say about Phoebe? I simply wanted to wrap her in a bear hug and assure her everything would be alright.
In addition to all that the plot was not only educational, but was enjoyable as well. There were many twists and turns that keep your attention through out the novel.
Thank you Herta Feely, for sharing this story with us. I could tell that you put your whole heart and soul into this novel. It must be a subject that has significant meaning for you
