GoodReads Review – When I’m Gone

When I'm GoneWhen I’m Gone by Emily Bleeker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It took me a few chapters (okay, three) to get into this book enough so that I wanted to finish reading it. I read to chapter 3 about a week ago, then set it aside until today. I couldn’t quit once I started reading again. The author puts enough twists into the story that the ending was still a surprise. I liked the way she tied everything together by the end, and although she had to try pretty hard to make it all work, I liked the ending well enough that I didn’t mind the almost unbelievable occurrences. It was a pretty emotional story, so be prepared for that. And though she didn’t specifically give the reader the happy ending, I chose to make it one. (Mainly because I wanted it to be a happy ending after all the previous sadness). Don’t know if this review really contains spoilers, but just the fact that I said it was a happy ending seems like I should hide it.
