Getting pregnant as a teenager was never part of Kate’s plan, but when it happens she’s determined to do right by her daughter, showing her the love she never had as a child. Life as a single mother is hard, sometimes impossible, but it only brings Kate and Becky closer together. By the time Becky is making her own way in the world as a tenacious trainee journalist, Kate couldn’t be prouder. But when the unthinkable happens, Kate’s life is changed forever. Desperately trying to understand, Kate stumbles across a story Becky was researching. Is it possible that this cruel twist of fate wasn’t an accident?
I have very mixed feelings about this book. Some parts I loved and some I actually strongly disliked. I loved the start of the book. I found that to be the most engaging part and I was so intrigued from the start. For me, when I found out what Becky had been investigating, I was a bit let down. It just went down a route I wasn’t quite expecting. Even still, I was really enjoying the story. There were some chapters that told the story of Becky growing up. I believed that was leading to some sort of connection to what was happening in present times. I was slightly disappointed that it wasn’t really relevant to the events of the story. The ending though was honestly so disappointing. There was just no twist or shocking moments. It was the obvious outcome which is so disappointing in any book, but especially for one which I had genuinely been enjoying reading. The epilogue was written really strangely. It was almost like a documentary where at the end they tell you what each character did after the show, rather than being told from a character’s point of view if you get me. It was a good story but I felt these elements let it down.
