Losing Leah Reviews
great book the whole book kinda ends halfway into the book and then it feels like the author is just try to fill pages with new conflicts the characters are also pretty 2d
Trauma forces humans to do all sorts of things in order to survive. In this psychological thriller about a sixteen-year-old girl kidnapped ten years ago, readers watch as Leah Klein endures unspeakable horrors from the woman who took her, lied to her about her health, and now keeps her imprisoned in a basement, supposedly to protect her. But Leah wants more than this limited life, and when she tries to strengthen her body, the woman she calls Mother punishes her so severely that she almost dies. ...more
Finally a quick read!! I keep choosing these long books that are really wrecking my chances of meeting my reading goal for the year.
Losing Leah was okay for me. I think I was disappointed in some aspects that came to light through the story. It was definitely hard to read through some of the different parts and many parts weren't really addressed, even though they came up in the story again and again.
I have 2 year old twins so I am often exhausted and dont usually have time to read (or the motivation). This book sucked me in and I finished it in 4 days. That's a pretty big accomplishment for me! I really enjoyed this book overall. I wish certain parts had been fleshed out more and I felt like the way the therapist was portrayed was not a completely accurate representation of a therapist but overall I enjoyed the book!
So many twists! I wasn't expecting any of them so good job to the author. I enjoyed the characters and the writing was and flow of the story was all pretty good. Sometimes the dialogue between the teenagers felt kind of weird. I would honestly think 'what teenager talks like this?' at some points but I suppose the twist sort of explain it. Anyway, I really enjoyed this.
Five star review coming soon!
