Hey guys! It’s bank holiday again this weekend, which basically means lounging around not doing much of anything! This weeks pick for me is a book that I ordered at the beginning of May, that only just arrived a couple of days ago!! Along with that, whoever delivered it just left it on the doorstep… which I think is crazy! I was actually 250km away when it was delivered, so it could have been delivered and stolen and I would never have known! Anyway…

A bittersweet homecoming holds dark secrets in this heart-wrenching story of loss, love, and survival for readers of Room.
When sixteen-year-old Amy returns home, she can’t tell her family what’s happened to her. She can’t tell them where she’s been since she and her best friend, her cousin Dee, were kidnapped six years ago—who stole them from their families or what’s become of Dee. She has to stay silent because she’s afraid of what might happen next, and she’s desperate to protect her secrets at any cost.
Amy tries to readjust to life at “home,” but nothing she does feels right. She’s a stranger in her own family, and the guilt that she’s the one who returned is insurmountable. Amy soon realizes that keeping secrets won’t change what’s happened, and they may end up hurting those she loves the most. She has to go back in order to move forward, risking everything along the way. Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee is a riveting, affecting story of loss and hope.
