When reality can be terrifying
Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands
By: Chris Bohjalian
Genre: Adult fiction
3.5 out of 5
It took me a while to get into Emily's story. I originally started out listening to it, but the story wasn't holding my interest, so I switched to print. By the second half of story, After Cameron, I was sucked in and couldn't put down the book. It is scary how realistic this story can be - think of kids that lost parents in the
September 11th, and all the school shootings.
Emily may have been terrified inside, but she was strong outside and did
what she had to do in order to survive.
Bohjalian writes a powerful story that while depressing also shows the
determination of one teenage girl. Oklahoma
