Even though I’m only able to read a sample of the book. Believe me when I say this will be going on top of the books I need to buy list.👏🏽
Lay Me Down (A Kellam High Novel) by Tamara Hart Heiner.
Right away I found myself relating to Kylees character and found parallels between us to some extent. Not necessarily in the same situations or choices she makes but overall in the feelings she goes through. She’s vulnerable and above anything else yearns to be loved.💔
And she’d have friends. So many friends and admirers that she would have to carry a pocket calendar everywhere she went. She pictured herself as an adult, strolling down the sidewalk in a glamorous dress, stopping to greet all the people who adored her. All the handsome men who wanted her company. “I’d love to do dinner, Andrew. Oh, Friday? I’m so sorry, Friday doesn’t work for me. Lunch is taken on Saturday, also. I can do dinner on Saturday!”
When she’s fantasying about starting a new life, where people WANT to be her friend and guys WANT to date her, my heart broke a bit. I couldn’t help but cry. Being cut off from the everyone and everything is a heavy burden to carry especially when you’re young. You need that human interaction. So I understand why she’s so intrigued when new neighbors move in next door. Even more so, when a cute guy her age is there too. Her determination is admirable. It’s still a hard lump to swallow when she keeps getting shot down. I can’t help but feel defensive for Kylee but Price has his reasons for being distant. Some that I’m hoping to learn more about when I purchase the rest of the book.📚
🔅The book is a page turner. I kept holding in my breath, praying for the sample to continue on and on. Theres mystery and I would say a supernatural element to the story I wasn’t expecting. To be honest I didn’t catch it right away. I was like wait a minute somethings happening here. Whether it’s coming directly from Kylee herself or around her, something is definitely happening.🤔
🔅What are your thoughts? Does this book sound like something you would be interested in reading for yourself? I’ve already have theories brewing in my head and contemplating what direction the story might be going.📚
