Ahh, I don’t know how to review this book because I ended up having to put it in a timeout because it stressed me out so much! Like, you know that feeling where you desperately need resolution, but things are made worse, and the suspense starts to become unbearable? You’re going to get that reading this book. I read Look For Me last year, and then I realized I already had one of Walker’s books on my TBR shelf. I’m only sorry it took so long to get to it.
You get this feeling the narrator is sketchy as heck, and it gives you this total creep factor about everything he says. I was reading other reviews before I wrote my own, and I have to say, some of them were so compelling it was tempting to change my star rating, especially when I think back to earlier in the week when the book had to go into time out because of my rage. But the thing is, I picked it back up, and I read through every cringe-worthy moment to get to the end.
The book dragged in a few spots, and that’s why I give it 4 stars instead of 5, because it seemed so slow in the day to day, that it made certain parts harder to get through. However, I appreciate how delicate the subject is and how transparent and honest the text felt. I can’t imagine this was an easy book to write. Overall, it’s an addicting read.
About the Book:
In the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut everything seems picture perfect.
Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, prefers to pretend this horrific event did not touch her perfect country club world.
As they seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town – or perhaps lives among them – drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.
