Then, “Jane” was just your typical 17-year-old in a typical New England suburb getting ready to start her senior year. She had a part-time job she enjoyed, an awesome best friend, overbearing but loving parents, and a crush on a boy who was taking her to see her favorite band. She never would’ve imagined that in her town where nothing ever happens, a series of small coincidences would lead to a devastating turn of events that would forever change her life. Now, it’s been three months since “Jane” escaped captivity and returned home. Three months of being that girl who was kidnapped, the girl who was held by a “monster.” Three months of writing down everything she remembered from those seven months locked up in that stark white room. But, what if everything you thought you knew―everything you thought you experienced―turned out to be a lie?
I’d seen this book around here and there, and it sounded pretty interesting. I was planning on picking it up sometime, BUT I GOT AN ARC IN THE MAIL! It was my first unsolicited ARC, which is very exciting. I was super pumped to get a package from WednesdayBooks, but I wasn’t expecting this book! So, I jumped on the chance to read it. Trigger warnings: self-harm, captivity, emotional manipulation, implied rape/assault
