With each day that passes, Sara’s more on edge. Her friends know that something’s wrong, but she won’t endanger anyone else with her secret. And with her dad growing increasingly violent, Sara must figure out what happened to her mom before it’s too late… for them both.

„Don’t even think of leaving… I will find you,” he whispered.
– from What She Left Behind

What She Left Behind was different. It was like riding a 237 pages script of a thriller movie. The pages were filled with secrets, doubts, and tough decisions. And while I was riding it, the images were running before my eyes.
From the first few chapters, I know I wasn’t going to be able to stop reading until I’ll find out what happened to Sara’s mom.
What She Left Behind tells the story of Sara, a shy girl who’s trying to cope with the fact that her brother took his own life and now her dad is physically abusive to her mother. When her mom finally decides to take Sara and run, she disappears.
Sara knows her father have something to do with her mom disappearance and starts to search for clues that will take her to what happened.
Sara is becoming stronger from page to page and the end of the book will reveal a brave young girl, ready to do what it takes to save her mom.
Behind the actions of Sara, her mom and dad, What She Left Behind tackles serious themes, sometimes subtly and sometimes not.
You will find this book is more than just a story, is a lesson of life and death and the struggle a teenager is going through for saving the one she loves.

  1. Pare o carte interesanta, insa nu e chiar genul meu de carte, am facut greseala sa citesc o carte de groaza si am inceput sa fiu agitata trei zile, da stiu nu este o carte de groaza , dar are o poveste trista si nu mai vreau sa vars lacrimi si sa imi doresc sa intru in carte pentru a-l determina pe tip sa se opreasca ..oricum treaba buna faci aici..

  2. Ca si krisszu95shinny, nu imi place sa citesc carti de groaza sau sa ma incarc cu lecturi careau un efect nefast asupra mea, tulburandu-mi somnul, si incarcandu-ma negativ. Dar aceasta carte cred ca mi-ar placea sa o vad sub forma unei ecranizari, si cred ca ar fi un thriller de succes. O fata al carui frate se sinucide, si a carei mama dispare in mod misterios dupa ce aceasta din urma se hotarase sa plece impreuna cu fiica sa de parte de abuzurile tatalui, pare a fi un subiect controversat care lasa cititorul cu sufletul la gura. Chiar sunt curioasa unde e mama sa si cum reuseste fata sa-si demascheze tatal. Recenzia ta mi-a starnit curiozitatea, dar ti-am zis, poate sa ii urmaresc actiunea intr=un film de 1h 30 min mi-ar placea, dar sa citesc cartea nu!

    • eu dupa ce citesc o carte de groaza ma gandesc zile intregi la ea( asta daca a fost una buna ) si imi promit ca nu am sa mai citesc astfel de carti, dar mereu ajung cu alta carte in mana. genul asta e ca un drog de care vrei dar nu te poti lasa
