Birdy thought she would have to wait until she was free again to see Rose, but now Rose has been convicted of a shocking crime and she and Birdy will be together. Birdy has been saving all her anger for Rose. It is Rose who should have protected her and kept her safe.
Birdy was little but Rose was big and she knows Rose could have saved her. This is a story about monsters who hide in plain sight and about the secrets we keep from ourselves. It is about children who are betrayed and adults who fail them. This is the story of Birdy who was hurt and Rose who must be made to pay.
A provocative and compassionate listen from the queen of white-knuckle suspense and searing family drama.
A disturbing book particularly on Audible. Well paced. Fan of Nicole Trope. Great narration.
I don't know where to start writing a review for this book. It was just that good. From the very beginning, I was drawn in by little Felicity. She is such an incredible character with such depth that I felt like I could reach out and touch her little face. In fact, every single character author Nicole Trope has created has such depth and incredible realism. I was just mesmerized by how smart Felicity is despite being both a young child but also a child with a 'mental disability'. And I just loved the story. It's so very different from any other book I've read. The anticipation of finding out what really happened and how it's going to end starts immediately and never lets up.
Then there is the narrator. Susan Stafford did a superb job! She is able to read the authors words right off the page and plant them directly into your imagination. Susan deftly separates each character into bigger than life, realistic individuals. I loved the way she 'read' Felicity. This is a great book on it's own. But it's an even greater
