I was given a copy of the .pdf version of What the Valley Knows in exchange for an honest review so here goes.
If you like Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why you will love this book. If you hate 13 Reasons Why you will love this book. I loved this book.
The author did a wonderful job of taking readers into the scene. Having just been the victim of a bad car accident, some of the feelings that the heroine had in the hospital after her accident were very familiar. That’s how real the writing was.
The secondary characters were like people you would come across in life, you have the people who give you the creeps, those you want to smack till kingdom come and those you love.
As our teenaged heroine struggles to find her place in the new town she and her mother moved to, her single mother has her own set of struggles but there is a divide between the two so neither of them knows about the other.
The author does seamless transformations between the adult and teenagers in the book. I don’t want to give anything away, so I will recommend this book, it will keep you guessing and really takes you out of your reality into the lives of these characters.
What The Valley Knows by Heather Christie
Publication date: January 25th 2018
Genres: Romance, Young Adult
Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.
When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.
The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.
