My Thoughts

Since the first moment this book intrigued me; the cover and the plot sounded interesting and different from the reads I am used to, it was worth every page!
This is the story of Jo and Ellie; Ellie seem to have the “perfect” life, but she has problems with her husband and is not happy in her marriage, the only thing that puts a smile on her face is her grandson. Until the day that she looks away and something happens…
On the other side we have Jo, she is a homeless woman with a hard life and a lot of secrets. But what could be the link between these two women if in plain sight they don’t seem to have anything in common!? Of course if you want to know the connection between them you’ll have to read the book, no spoilers!
I really like books that doesn’t have fear to talk about delicate themes; like mental health, surviving needs and unhappiness. Be prepared for a twisted psychological thriller, complex and gripping that will catch you since the first page!
This is not a short book, but don’t worry for the number of pages it is worth every one of them! Ready for I Looked Away?
