interrupted:life beyond words // Book Review

Interrupted: life beyond words by Rachel Coker

After reading Ms. Coker's blog for over a year, I was extremely excited to be able to have the chance to read both of her books. {in only two days. :)}

          I was both excited and hesitant about her books. After all, she did write Interrupted when she was only 14, and lets face it, most 14-year-olds wouldn't be able to write a book to save their lives. But I was pleasantly surprised. Interrupted was a interesting, fun read, and well written, and not at all what I was expecting. 

          Allie is a young woman who has to deal with more than most girls should ever have to. Her mother is a little strange, but Allie loves her and cares for her through out her illness anyway. Her mother dies, and she is sent to Maine and adopted by a rich woman. Allie withdraws into herself and rejects those who try to reach out to her. She finds a friend in Charlie, a girl she met in Maine, and the two grow close. And then Sam shows up, and threatens to shatter the coldness in her heart.

          Interrupted was a delightfully sweet book, and was definitely worth the read. Being that it was Ms. Cokers debut novel, there were some typo's, and some vagueness, but overall it was beautiful, and I would definitely recommend it to everyone. 

8 out of 10 stars
