Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr
Today's book is Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr! The description of this book is:
Samara Taylor used to believe in miracles. She used to believe in a lot of things. As a pastor's kid, it's hard not to buy in to the idea of the perfect family, a loving God, and amazing grace. But lately, Sam has a lot of reason to doubt. Her mother lands in rehab after a DUI and her father seems more interested in his congregation than his family. When a young girl in her small town is kidnapped, the local tragedy overlaps with Sam's personal one, and the already-worn thread of faith holding her together begins to unravel.
This book first drew me in with its cover. I know, that's not what you're supposed to do with books, but I couldn't help it. The cover is pretty, and I like pretty covers. Anyway, after I read the description, I thought it would be a cool book to check out. When I first started it, I wasn't getting into it, but after the first chapter or two, it got my attention. I was really wondering if Jody was ever going to get found, and when I started getting close to the end of the book, I got worried we weren't going to find out. No worries, you get all you need in the ending chapters of this book! It was an overall pretty good book, I'd say. The whole idea of being the pastor's daughter was cool to me. I've never read a book like that before. It's not really an uplifting book until the end though. If this one sounds interesting to you, give it a try! Hope you guys enjoy :]
PS: Sorry for the delay in posts again! Busy college life + finals + Christmas = not a whole lot of posts! But, I did read a lot of books, so stay tuned! :]
