When I was seventeen, I disappeared. I walked out the door of my apartment with a backpack and never looked back. I left the life of Cora Mitchell behind, seeking freedom from my real-life nightmare. But my freedom came with a cost. I lived a fictitious life for the next six years, never letting anyone close enough to see underneath the facade that was Andra Walker. I was content with my simple little life. Until I met Julian. And the moment I started allowing myself to open up, allowing someone to see through the superficial, was the very same moment the Monster from my past would return to find me.
(Summary from Goodreads)
I couldn't do a better summary for the book.
I picked this book, because Amazon recmmended it for me. I didn't even read the back or mark it on Goodreads when I started it. It was a leap of faith when I turned the first page.
I have to say, I was not disappointed. Not at all. The story of Cora, or Andra which ever you prefer), was captivating from the beginning and I read it in one sitting. I loved the story and hownit revealed itself during the course of the book. There was no over load of information in part, which was just perfect.
It was funny and tragic, loving and hurting, it was everything at the same time. Whitney Barbetti has been abel to catch so many emotions on the paper, that sometimes you just have to close the book, so you can breathe. Truly an amazing book.
He Found Me deserves every single one of its stars.
