Summary

Meet Noah - an A-honor-roll student, award-winning swimmer, and small-town star destined for greatness. There weren't any signs that something was wrong until the day he confesses to molesting little girls during swim-team practice. He's sentenced to 18 months in a juvenile sexual-rehabilitation center. 

His mother, Adrianne, refuses to turn her back on him despite his horrific crimes, but her husband won't allow Noah back into their home. In a series of shocking and shattering revelations, Adrianne is forced to make the hardest decision of her life. Just how far will she go to protect her son? 

Saving Noah challenges everything you think you know about teenage sexual offenders. It will keep you up at night long after you've finished, questioning beliefs you once thought were true.

Very intense but would recommend

I was surprised that I could listen to the entire book given the intense subject matter. The story is written well, and my only complaint is with the narrator. She didn't do a good job with the male or child voices.

Really intense story...

There's only one change I would make, and I wish someone had told me this before reading it.... My advice to anyone who listens to this (and to the author, who has several other books I enjoyed): The last chapter and the Epilogue should be switched. If you're about to listen to this, as soon as you get to chapter 29, stop the book and skip to the epilogue, (chapter 30) Then go back and listen to the final chapter as chapter 29. Trust me - it's a MUCH more powerful punch of an ending that way. The way it is now it just trails off, when instead, it would smack you in the heart and head the other way around. After Ch 29, I expected the epilogue/Ch 30 to have some hint of * SPOILER AHEAD * SPOILER AHEAD * SPOILER AHEAD * Ok, that's 3 chances not to read the next line. Seriously stop reading this review now if you don't want a spoiler: I wish the final epilogue was spoken by K about L having done something to her, or that we find out from L's part that during the time the family was split up, L admitted that he had done something while living alone with K. * SPOILER OVER * SPOILER OVER * SPOILER OVER.

First experience with audiobooks

I enjoyed this story, and the narration was well done (ffwd it to 1.15x though in attempt to match my mental reading speed) Touching story, hard to take sides.

Meh but also disturbed

The mom seemed so naive to the point of being unrealistic about her expectations of how her community would feel toward her son. The whole, “it’s not like he raped them,” rationalization the character kept making was annoying, too; however, I guess I can see how a mother would want to try to see the best in a incredibly terrible situation.

So Depressing!

I almost gave up on this book when I was halfway through because it was over the top depressing. I am ok with reading a sad book sometimes if there are some redeeming moments. There were no redeeming moments. Not really any sad moments. Just a depressing family who’s lives are totally ruined and questions are discussed about whether it would be a horrible thing to help your child kill themselves

Mediocre

Maybe I read too many reviews prior to listening to this book but I found it predictable. Adrianne (the mom) really irritated me. She seemed to be in denial,while continuously justifying and down playing what had happened. The ending was a surprise but added to my frustration about the story. Would have enjoyed a little more insight to that situation. Made that more of a part of the book instead 10 minutes at the end.
