Official Synopsis

Some memories are better left untouched.

Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family.

It’s a miracle… at first.

Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn’t going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he’d be able to put the pieces back together.

But there’s something that’s keeping his memory blocked.

Something unspeakable…

My Thoughts/Summary

So over Labor Day weekend I decided to fly through a bunch of books, because why not? I had gotten a ton of recommendations from my local bookstore and this was one of them.

As I said in my original review, Have I just gotten really picky lately? I was yet again underwhelmed by this book, I saw the ending coming pretty early on. Sigh.

I was expecting this book to blow me away, I really thought that it was going to be a nail biter, that I wasn’t going to anticipate the ending, but I saw it coming a mile away, especially once one of the siblings started to study genetics.

The ending was actually disappointing, how it all unraveled, and overall, it was absolutely more like 2.5 stars, but my only 2 star rated book is “Will Grayson, Will Grayson” and I didn’t hate the characters in this book like I sort of did in that one? Anyway, it seemed super predictable to me as I’ve said before. Sorry not sorry?
