A daughter’s cry for help is tearing her parents apart
You know what’s best for your child.
Riley Pieterson is an adventurous girl with lots of questions. There’s plenty she doesn’t know yet; what a human brain looks like. All the constellations in the night sky. Why others can’t see her the way she sees herself.
When Riley confides in her parents – Sally and Theo – that she feels uncomfortable in her own skin, a chain of events begins that changes their lives forever. Sally wants to support her daughter by helping her be who she dreams of being. Theo resists; he thinks Riley is a seven-year-old child pushing boundaries. Both believe theirs is the only way to protect Riley and keep her safe.
With the wellbeing of their child at stake, Sally and Theo’s relationship is pushed to breaking point. To save their family, each of them must look deeply at who they really are.
A story of a marriage in crisis and a child caught in the middle, this is a beautiful novel of parents and their children, and how far we’re prepared to go in the name of love.
I loved this story and it was one that really stayed with me, it was thought provoking and it is one that really touches your heart.
The story is very well written and I thought that the characterisation was excellent. The characters worked so well together and within the plot too.
The topic is more relevant today as the awareness is improved now and I thought it was dealt with really well.
Four stars from me for this one, well written, a really good storyline and some excellent characters – highly recommended!!
