Shelby Lee (nee Mary Elizabeth, lived with Mamie Lee (n0t the biological mother) & Jack (Mamie’s husband). Turns out he was a sexual predator (pedophile) & sexually, physically mentally molested Shelby.How will she get away from all of this horror?Who are Oreo, Jose & Daniel?As a former school & crisis MSW therapist how many times I have heard this same or similar story. & I could tell my own real life story! Only thing that was left out is how the foster care placement, MH, law enforcement & Children’s & Family Service work or don’t. Warning: This book is for adults only & contains extreme violent or graphic adult content or profanity &/or sexually explicit scenarios. It may be offensive to some readers. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were a few grammar/typo errors (highlighted), but no repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make great movie, or mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars. Thank you for the free Goodreads; Autographed; paperback book Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)
I was gifted this book by the author for an honest review.When Shelby's mum dies, her world is turned upside down when a secret is revealed. She is left in the hands of her step father, who Shelby knows is a monster, so she decides the only way to stay safe is to run as far away from him as she can. Shelby decides to follow her heart and try and find the family she knew nothing about. Shelby embarks on an interesting journey indeed. She meets a few characters along the way that help her on her journey.....including a chicken :-) These characters make the story fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely read more from L.M Glenn. A definite must read and one I would recommend. 4 Stars
Shelby is a story about a young woman who has been through so many tragedies in her short life. After losing her mother she finds a letter that uncovers her past and sends her life into a tailspin. Shelby has nothing to gain by staying, and takes off looking for a better future. On her journey she meets Oreo, Jose and Daniel. These characters pull at your heart strings and make you fall in love with the story. The story line is for a more mature audience simply because of Shelby's childhood. The author does a great job of making you feel for the characters, while not harping on one situation to make the book dark. In the end you realize there is light and love at the end of the tunnel and that one day your angel will help you. Fantastic story, I can't wait for book two.
This is a really good, at times nerve wracking, story of a 13 year old girl's journey from Wyoming to Florida. Accumulating an odd group of friends (From Divine to a chicken!) she is searching for the home and family of her birth, having been kidnapped by a crazy woman as an infant. The woman dies, leaving Shelby with only a hint and a child molesting "step father", whom she flees. The story could have had a bit more introspection, but does get emotional and deeply heart rending. It's a good story, and I'd let any one from 13 on read it. Lisa's done a nice job of storytelling!
AMAZING book by LM Glenn. Shelby's journey to find her real birth parents was tear jerking and an emotional adventure. *** SPOILER ALERT*** She escaped the emotional, physical, & sexual abuse of who she thought was her were parents to discover the strength of who she really was inside and out. She truly was and amazing spirit inside and out. It left speechless and wanting more. The only I wanted when I flipped to the last page was: LM Glenn where the heck is book two? Thank you LM for an awesome read!
Great readThis book is very intriguing and has you cheering for Shelby, Jose, Daniel, and even Oreo. Can't wait for Shelby 2
This is a sweet and inspiring story about a young girl who befriends and gains two unlikely companions on her way to search for her biological family after learning the life she has was not the one she was meant to have.
Not my typical type of book however I knew this author had talent from all of her other books I've read <3
