If I Run by Terri Blackstock
I am not quite sure what to say about this book. It is written in first person switching back and forth between two different people. I give Terri a lot of credit for doing a good job at that. The story had continuity to it and I wasn't left trying to figure out what was going on.
The plot was really good, a girl runs away because she is sure she is going to be implicated in the murder of her good friend and she doesn't trust the justice system because they didn't listen to her about her dad who supposedly had committed "suicide" 12 years before, but in reality was murdered. The other main character was the investigator hired to find her. He is started to think that there is more to the story than he knows and gets some information that points to the cops being the bad guys. He also realizes that likely these same cops don't want the girl brought to trial, they want to kill her before that.
But then the story ends. The investigator found the girl and let her get away and she runs. And now what? Supposedly there are two more books in the trilogy, but I can't find a name of the trilogy. I can't find when the next book will be released. It will be honest, it was such a disappointing finish. I like that there will be more books. I want to read them, but give me something to go on.
There was some mention of God in the books, but the main character, the girl, was not raised in a Christian home and didn't seem to have much of a concept of God though she appreciated the Christians she had met. This too, I am guessing is a work in progress.
I would recommend the book, but maybe wait to start reading it until all the books are out.
I received a complementary copy of this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
