Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84142 comments Mod
After police intervention, fifteen-year-old Joy has finally escaped the trailer where she once lived with her mother and survived years of confinement and abuse. Now living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in a comfortable house, she’s sure she’ll never belong. Wracked by panic attacks, afraid to talk to anyone at her new school, Joy’s got a whole list of reasons why she’s crazy. With immense courage, Joy finds friends and grows closer to her new family. But just when hope is taking hold, she learns she must testify in her mother’s trial. Can she face her old life without losing her way in the new one? Will she ever truly belong in a world that seems too normal to be real?

Abbie, Rachel, Tatiana and I will be reading this from May 29th. This book has not yet been published, and copies are available on request from Netgalley.

rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Is this a series or standalone?


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84142 comments Mod
standalone. I don't think I'd bother if there were more books after this one.

Done! Thank goodness! That went on forever and ever and ever! :(


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84142 comments Mod
That's what I thought. considering that the book was supposed to be less than 300 pages, it felt long.

It felt so much longer than that. I agree!

Don't know. it's a bit of a mish-mash. I'll ask Abbie ☺

Okay, thanks! :)


message 49: by rachel ☾ (new)

rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Oh, and a completely random question but you know on blogs how they have all those page tabs that you can click along the top? There's like a "home" one and a "review list" one etc. How do you get it that (on your own blog) that you can click on that tab and a list of pages comes down to click on? For examples, I have a "review list" tab but I would like that when you click on it comes up with a "review copy list" and a "by title" and a "by rating" option. Would you have nay idea how to do that? (If you can follow my rambling that is!) Thanks!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84142 comments Mod
Not a clue. I think I know what you mean, but I'm not sure how to do it. You could possibly do it so that you redirect to other pages. so you would go to the review page, and it would say 'by title', 'by rating', and then link those to other pages with the reviews arranged like that. I think you'd have to do the lists yourself though, which would take ages. is that what you mean?
