I don't know what it is with me and the sad books I have been reading. They are like train wrecks, I cannot stop reading. I find myself trying to wrap my head around the feelings I am having on this book.
Caroline's little brother goes missing, and she thinks it's all her fault. She was suppose to be watching him. When Dillon is found, he is found with another kidnapped victim. The difference is Dillon was gone for just a few days but Ethan has been gone for 4 years. What happens afterward is where this story takes us.
How often do we get to read a story of what happens after a kidnapped victim returns home. Now, that I have said that, I don't think I want to ever dive inside the head of a kidnapped victim (fictional or real). It's horrifying and scary.
Ethan's parents make sure he never leaves their site. Taken at age 11 he is finally found after his kidnapper decided they needed another boy. Four years had passed for Ethan. His mom cannot seem to believe that Ethan is really home. She keeps hugging him, crying with joy, and watching his every move. Ethan is just trying to figure out how to live life now that he is back with his family. He is starting to remember sounds, and smells from when he was a child. He meets with a counselor but isn't ready to really face what horrors happened to him while he was gone.
Dillon is autistic, and had been missing for just a few days. He doesn't know how to communicate what has happened to him, he only repeats the same words all the time. Caroline is Dillon's older sister, and she is riddled with guilt. She was suppose to be watching her brother when he was taken. Caroline and Dillon's parents don't know how to deal with the tragedy.
Caroline get up the nerve to visit Ethan to see if he has answers. I wish I could go on from here, but you must read this for yourself. It is heart breaking, horrifying, sad, and beautiful all at the same time.
If you like stories of over coming hard ships, and trauma, this is a great book to read. Just be prepared for the emotional roller coaster that this book will take you on. You will experience fear, anger, hope, and healing. This was such an intense read.

Content: Some language including the "f' word. Talk of sex, not too descriptive and innuendo of sexual abuse.
