Some of the notes I wrote for myself while reading this book:
- 1. The first chapter sets up Gillys frustrations very well...its palpable. I feel her need to escape. And the transition into the carjacking is flawless.
- 2. The title of the book takes on several meanings throughout the story. Excellent title!
- 3. The descriptions are just right in this book, just enough for the reader to get a real sense of the surroundings but not too much too detract from the flow of the story. I loved this excerpt as it is a perfect example of this, "This morning she'd stood in her closet, picking out clothes without holes or too many stains, jeans with a button and zipper instead of soft lounge pants with an elastic waist..."
This is a highly recommended read!
