Pass it on

Jo at Through the keyhole did a great review on this book, 
click the link to read it, and then offered to pass it along.
I was lucky to receive it and now have finished reading.
So after reading my review below, if you would like the chance to read this book, 
please leave a comment,
whoever I pull out of the hat, I will post the book to you. 

I'm not sure I can add to Jo's review of this book, I have never read Amanda Prowse before, and the subject matter anorexia, is new to me, so honestly I was not sure what I would think. 

The story follows a perfect family setting, mum, dad and two teenage daughters, and whilst the story is about the illness suffered by Lexi, their youngest daughter, the story is told by the mum, Freya, and how she struggles, copes with every changing aspect of their lives and how it effects each member of the family. The story took you through loads of strong emotions, with each family member. I found it a very believable story line and often understood Freya's feelings, nothing was sugar coated, it felt very real.

I could not put this book down, I needed to know what would happen to them all, it was very honest and emotional in a way I never expected, it could have been a true story, and sadly probably is for someone. 

I will search this author again, I loved her style of writing

Please put a comment on this post if you would like a chance of reading this book

I will leave this open until the weekend, when all names go into a hat. 

Thank you Jo for a great read. 


  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, though enjoyed probably isn't the right word considering the subject matter. I tend to read Amanda Prowse books in order of them being written as some of the characters, particularly in the early books, tend to crop up in later stories, though each book is a stand alone story and it doesn't really matter whether you've read the earlier books or not.


  2. It sounds like quite a read, I'll have to order it. Jo has recommended a few books that I've ordered from the area library and they've been very good. I studied Anorexia at Uni, its quite a complex subject that on may occasion leads to death which is extremely sad.

  3. Sounds an interesting and enlightening read.

  4. I’ve been waiting for this post so that I could tell you how much I enjoyed it too.

  5. Hmmm not sure if I would like it. I’d have to take your word for it. I usually read to escape real life! Sounds shallow but that’s why I read novels. To escape.
