The stories we live vs the stories we tell. This novel packs such a powerful punch. I lived and breathed each step with Amelia as she found her way through such difficult life challenges. It speaks of grief and fear and love and trust. Yet, it’s this young girls resilience that really shines through. She has the love and support of others, but she succeeds because of her own innate sense of what is right, and her own self worth. A captivating read.
