2018 book 11

Heather Lloyd's My Name is Venus Black
I just read this book all in one sitting, but I still can’t quite pinpoint exactly how I felt about it. It is compelling, but maybe a bit too on the women's fiction end of the spectrum to really satisfy me? It centers on a thirteen year old girl, under arrest for a terrible crime, who years later is trying to rebuild her life and hide from her past. And also her developmentally disabled brother has been kidnapped. I liked many parts of this but the ending was perhaps a bit too pat. B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in February.
