ABOUT THE BOOK:

Four days…
Trapped in a well, surrounded by dirt, scratching at the walls trying to find a way out.
Four days of a thirst so strong, that when it finally rains, I drink as much as possible from the dripping walls, not even caring how much dirt comes with it.

Six months…
Since my escape. Since no one believed I was taken to begin with – from my own bed, after a party, when no one else was home…
Six months of trying to find answers and being told instead that I made the whole incident up.

One month…
Since I logged on to the Jane Anonymous site for the first time and found a community of survivors who listen without judgment, provide advice, and console each other when needed.
A month of chatting with a survivor whose story eerily mirrors my own: a girl who’s been receiving triggering clues, just like me, and who could help me find the answers I’m searching for.

Three days…
Since she mysteriously disappears, and since I’m forced to ask the questions: will my chance to find out what happened to me vanish with her? And will I be next?

MY REVIEW:

Imagine being diagnosed with delusions, depression, and being told you are defiant and paranoid. You lose most of your friends, you feel alone, and something terrible has happened to you but no one believes you, not really. This is how Terra feels. She turns to a website she finds online called Jane Anonymous, a website where victims of crime can come together and chat about their trauma with others, without judgement, who have gone through similar experiences.

I love how the chapters were alternating between “then” and “now”. It adds to the plot and builds up the suspense, as you try to uncover what happened, and if it was all actually in her mind like some people think of if this truly happened to her. What better way to read a story than through the eyes of an unreliable narrator such as Terra.

A wonderful novel that I recommend you add to your TBR.
